My favorite burger! The pimento cheese, jalapeno and bacon are such a good trio to top off a delicious burger that's cooked to your preference every time. It's messy in the best way. Cold beer, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Brisket Dip

U-Joint never disappoints. The brisket dip sandwich is delicious and hands down my go to when I eat here! The vibe is great, the service is always quick, and the staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. U-Joint is easily the best restaurant on the square!

BBQ Brisket Nachos

Outstanding appetizer with a southern BBQ flavor. Menu looks awesome and from what I saw being brought out from the kitchen.

We love the U-joint and I t's one of our family's favorite spots! Nestled right in downtown Clayton, it has easy access to a big parking lot right at the back, is right next to all the good shopping, and great for families with kids, dogs or both. They always have great beers on tap and the burgers are good. The universal tots are the best app and when I'm in the mood for something light I love the black bean quesadilla. They are always busy, so be ready to wait a while, but the good seating under shade it worth it.
