We stopped in Clayton for lunch and I asked a local were to go. He told us to go to the Universal Joint and make sure we had the Spicy Egg Rolls and he was right. They have outside seating and a great beer selection. We will be back. Pura Vida

We have been going to Clayton for years and have had mixed results looking for a good place for lunch. This spot has a wide menu with attention to fresh vegetables and great options for all types of eaters from vegetarian to carnivore. Nice to have those options and good service too.
The atmosphere is nice esp. on a pretty fall day to eat outside on the patio or enjoy a mild spring day too. Will be back in a few weeks to try the fall menu!

We went there on a Friday night and sat outside to listen to the band. What a great place! It is open air and very friendly and laid back. I got the black bean burger w/pimento cheese on top - EXCELLENT. Around 8 or 9:00, they fired up the outdoor fire pit and we moved our chairs over to it to keep warm. We will definitely go back there and highly recommend it.

Try the Grilled, Smoked Chicken Wings on Monday nights. Good burgers, BBQ and uniques sandwiches. This location is one of a few with locations in Atlanta and Asheville, NC. Clayton needed something to hit the spot for a bar scene with good 'bar food' in a centrally located, renovated gas station of years gone by. Service can be slack, but friendly nonetheless. What's the hurry? You're in Clayton and there is nothing else to do!

Enjoyed dinner on the patio. The menu offered something for everyone in our family-- burgers, salads, fish, and gyros. And they have a great selection of beer on tap. Would definitely go back
