Don’t bother visiting other places in town for a good burger. These burgers awesome. Really good atmosphere. Definitely a bar scene but accessible to families also. Outside seating. Highly recommend!!!!

This is by far the best spot to go to in downtown Clayton. Have been going there numerous times, and have not had a disappointment yet! Staff is always friendly and the food is amazing.

Had already had a few beers by the time I arrived. Great spot, friendly service and a fire pit outside. Smashing evening - hope it’s not my last visit!

Visiting a cousin that lives in Clayton, we decided on UJ for hamburger and tacos. The hamburger was loaded, large and rather expensive but tasty. The fish tacos were the best with a good size portion of fish in each. They were also tasty, very...More

This is a nice place to eat outdoors in good weather. Lunch is good and service is usually great. We've only had one visit when we kept having to ask for beverages, etc.
