had never been here before and my friend said she had been to one in another location, so we decided to give it a try. It has nice old world atmosphere hence the name Universal Joint ( inside it like on old auto shop ) good Beer list, and that was good, however she had gotten the Loaded fries (... More

Atmosphere ok. Patio looking out over Oakhurst. Vegetarian options are very limited. Their homemade veggie burger just fell apart. My companion had the veg quesadilla, nothing special.

We had dinner here with friends one Sunday evening. Great little spot! Little eclectic. Food was good and reasonably priced. We sat outside on the patio which was very pet friendly! Only compliant I had was the salsa was a little bland for me. They do serve tots which were great!

We haven't eaten in the little eclectic Oakhurst village before and were pleased with our choice of a place to have lunch. The service was friendly and prompt. I had a gyro with the cucumber salad...delicious! My husband had a patty melt..also delicious and large. He was pleased that they put sautéed mushrooms on his burger along with sautéed onions...

This was my second visit to the Universal Joint. It's good place to stop to grab a beer, watch a game, and grab something to eat. I had the spicy egg rolls and a couple of Sweetwater Hop Hash's for a late night session with an old friend. Both were excellent.

We went here while visiting family over the holidays. It was in the 70s so we ate outside. I had the vegetarian burger and tots, my husband had the fish tacos, and my daughter had the chicken tacos. All our food was really good. The veg burger had an aioli sauce that was spicy, but consistent and never too hot.... More

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

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

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
