Great neighborhood bar and restaurant

Best food variety in Oakhurst, especially great kids menu, and the tater tots are awesome! Very kid friendly, especially on the patio in summer.

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

Very inviting..Food was Great! we ordered way more than we could eat, but gladly took it back... More

Small neighborhood hangout in Oakhurst where you will want to become a regular. Good service & food. On nice days time will pass quickly sitting on the patio overlooking the "village" shops. Great place to be after dark.

Seems like UJoint has gotten worse, not better. Fewer decent beers, pretty average menu, spotty service. Great patio, but that's just not enough to draw me there. Such a great spot in the heart of Oakhurst, but if it's decent food and a good beer you're after, look somewhere else.

There is something for everyone on the menu. From burgers and BBQ to fish and salads with a few Quesadillas thrown in for good measure. Everything we had was good, the staff was nice and the drinks were flowing. Nice outdoor seating on a pretty corner with other shops and restaurants around. Lots of shade and a big fan to... More

We have two dogs and we like to take the U-joint. They have a large outdoor patio where four legged friends are welcome. Good vibe and good Brews. They changed their menu a year ago and took fried onions off the menu as a topping...guess I will have to adjust. Their burgers are cooked perfectly every time I go. And... More

We live within walking distance of Universal Joint and enjoy walking and dining on Tilapia Salad or hamburgers with olive tapenade to die for. Beers of every sort, margaritas or ginger ale depending on your mood. Love, love the recently renovated and spacious outdoor space of UJ! Highly recommend! Come out and support our local neighborhood "Cheers"!

My sister and I ate here Memorial Day weekend. The two girls who served us were absolutely great, friendly and attentive and knew the menu quite well. The food was excellent and the portions were large. Enjoyed the people watching and although I am two hours away, hope to go back soon to enjoy other menu items.
