Brisket Dip

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

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 !

We absolutely LOVE this place!!! Beautiful patio seating, excellent service, awesome food. All in the heart of historic downtown Clayton! I always get the burger that has fresh jalapeños. It's delicious! This place is the one place everyone in my family agrees on when it comes to dining out. Great drinks and local craft brews and wine. We live 45 minutes away, but go at least once a month - totally worth the drive!

Arugula & Mushroom Quesadilla

The arugula and mushroom quesadilla is my favorite of many good items on the UJoint menu. Hard to choose a favorite, actually. The salads and burgers are also excellent. Craft beer selection is big.

Blackened Flounder Tacos

Every time I go to UJ service, drinks and food are awesome. My favorite place is at the bar with the witty bartenders. Flounder tacos are the best. 😁😁

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.

My husband loves these so much! We travel to this area once or twice each year and the U Joint is a MUST! We visit several times during our stay.

Chicken Salad Sandwich

The chicken salad sandwich was awesome ! The chicken salad was so fresh and the grapes inside added a perfect crisp to the sandwich. The bread was very good also. I have very strict diet restrictions and the waitress was very helpful in helping me find a dish that would work for me. Loved the food! Hopeful to be back soon.

All the burgers at UJoint are good, but Steinbeck's is my favorite. Big and juicy, and the combination of flavors from pimento cheese, burger and bacon is very tasty. Fun ambience, large selection of craft beers, and live music make this one of our go to places.

Chicken Tacos

I've had just about everything on the menu and they're all great but this one is my favorite, blackened chicken tacos are the bomb! Great service and full bar makes this spot the place to be!
