Friendly Neighborhood Joint

A nice place to hang out with friends. They make a very tasty homemade veggie burger and their brisket nachos are delicious.

Located in a quirky neighborhood, this pub has good, traditional pub food at mid-range pub prices and a nice selection of beverages. The patio is fantastic on a pretty day and dogs are welcome. However, service can be very slow. . .if seated on the patio you will probably wait a long time for someone to take your order, have... More

Great location away from the hectic city. First, our server was great although I forget his name. Very friendly and eager to,please. Other members of the staff were cranky and complaining about customers being there too long. The food was average. The appetizers took 20-30 min to arrive and were cold. We had wings, burgers, nachos and loaded fries. Maybe... More

We had dinner outside & really enjoyed everything about UJ. Good service & the other customers seemed to all know one another. Very friendly atmosphere or maybe the stars were all aligned to make everyone be in a happy, relaxed mood. Everyone seemed very at home. We both had burgers. I had the U Joint (bacon, cheddar, jalapenos & ranch)... More

I give this joint 3 stars only because the beer and grilled chicken sandwich were fabulous. The wait staff was rude bordering on mean. We had a party of 8 and had pushed together (on our own) 3 small tables. A forth table was being used by the waitstaff as a junk table. Seriously, it was holding 2 pitchers and... More

They have a great bar choice and some original options (JD Honey with sweet tea and lemonade is the bomb!). The food choices were good and quality seemed to match. The atmosphere is perfect, sitting outside is very inviting and relaxing. Been back and will continue, a great Saturday lunch spot.

U-Joint as it's known to locals has flat screen tv's for sports watching but sit outside & sip on beer & the wonderful hummus appetizer. Best burgers, chicken fingers & gyro wrap around. Come here often with friends & family, worth the trip!

Came here with a group for our weekly lunch. The weather was great so we took advantage of the nice patio outside. Lots of people about. I had the turkey burger with tots. I liked both but I thought the tots were special -- nice and crispy and not greasy. The little one had the kid's grilled cheese, which he... More

In a little nook that is quiet yet interesting. you feel like your in an art district of sorts with a little bit of everything in one small area. Very inviting..Food was Great! we ordered way more than we could eat, but gladly took it back... More
