Blackened Flounder Tacos

UJoint has the best food, the best drinks, and the best atmosphere in Clayton. We choose it more often than any other restaurant. Deffinately sit outside if the weather is nice. Try the flounder tacos. You won't be disappointed!

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Sending a giant shoutout to Malisha and her UJ crew for delicious food that was well presented and rapidly devoured. My hubby is HARD to please and he commented on how good the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich was which means it was excellent. Throw in delivery and I have to give the food and service a thumbs up extraordinaire.

I drive for uber and lyft. New year's eve i delivered 4 couples to the downtown area. They each asked where was a good place to eat. I advised the U Joint. When I picked each couple up later in the evening they all were raving about the best hamburgers ever and the atmosphere. You keep serving great food and I will keep dropping my ride's off at there.

Stopped by on our way back from a basketball tournament. The burger was delicious. Had a little bit of kick with whole lot of flavor. I had the fries as my side. I'm not usually a French fry person, but I ate every last one. I live about an hour away and will definitely make the trip back up the mountain to revisit.

Brisket Dip

Being from Philadelphia, I consider myself a connoisseur of sandwiches consisting of beef and cheese. This sandwich was PHENOMENAL.

Pimento Cheese Plate

Great appetizer to share! The flavors were great and I was impressed by the portion size. A great start to dinner! Can't wait to be back again soon!

We absolutely LOVE the UJoint. We love the chill atmosphere. It's not the place to be if you're in a hurry. We normally enjoy the outdoor seating. Tonight, however, we are on a bit of a schedule so we choose to call the order in to go. The burgers are char grilled so it's worth the drive from toccoa when the cravings hit!

Steinbeck's Burger This one of my favorite burgers anywhere! It was cooked exactly how I ordered it and came out quickly! The combination of the creamy pimento cheese, crispy bacon and picked jalapeños was perfection! The bun was cooked on the grill so it kept it from getting soggy. I had the tater tots as my side dish and put a few on my burger.... so good!!! My hubby has the fire burger and he says it was delicious as !

Arugula & Mushroom Quesadilla

Holy moley! I went in fully planning to order my usual burger and then got to talking and just perusing the menu. I saw this and thought it sounded good but maybe I should just stick to what I know, right? The waitress came over with my pumpkin spiced mule and started taking orders. She got to me and I said the mushroom and arugula quesadilla. I was a little shocked myself. Turns out it was absolutely divine. I made everyone take a bite and then finished it completely off. So good. So good in fact I'm headed there tonight and I think I'm gonna order it again! Try it out for yourself:)

Brisket Dip

Everything on the menu is a hit. We have visited several times, always try different options and have never been disappointed. The Brisket Nachos are an amazing appetizer. The burgers are always flavorful and grilled to perfection. The variety of draft beers are plentiful and change with the seasons. The atmosphere is inviting. It is family friendly during the day with games for the kiddos in the music area and date friendly in the evening with local talent providing entertainment.

The Firecracker Burger was one of the best I've ever had (and I've had a LOT of burgers in my day.) I asked for extra of the jalapeno aioli & the wait staff was happy to provide - So. Good. Wonderful ambiance at Universal too. You need to go.

Always the Best Burger in Georgia! It is so good we come from Canton Ga for the atmosphere and food. Inside or outside seating, comfortable and relaxing - "get the city out of our head." We love the town of Clayton, it is a great place to visit and explore. U-joint is the reason we come up there.

Black Bean Burger

Got to be the best Black Bean burger I have had. So much flavor and not dry. Atmosphere at the U-Joint is awesome. Staff is great and hanging with people on the patio was cool. We will be back many times.

Black Bean Burger

By far my favorite reason for coming to Clayton is not just driving down Main Street, but stopping at Universal Joint for a black bean burger. Get this with the tater tots and you will not be disappointed!

Food was great! Wait staff was not helpful. Wanted to order the sliders off the kid's menu. Was told emphatically "No," which in my opinion was not only rude but unaccommodating. We could have ordered a child's meal to go. This should be addressed.
