Great hamburger, layer back atmosphere. Bartender was not familiar with drink I requested, she looked it up on internet and created a great Carmel Appletenie for me. Will visit again soon.

Great place to eat and watch the Dawg's. We have eaten here on several occasions and watched the Bulldogs. The game hasn't always been good but the food and the atmosphere has never disappointed us. Good menu, good food and friendly staff.

Love eating at the Universal Joint! Their selection of beers is great! And the burgers are the best. Be sure to look at the chalkboards for the vast beer selection.

The hamburgers are great and the atmosphere is relaxing. It was an enjoyable time. The old service station turned into a cafe was a great Ideal. I love the old gas pump.

Saw the crowd and realized this might be a great place. We were not disappointed. The burgers were over the top. Really great service especially considering the crowd. Problem was we were hungry again in less that two days. LOL. Portions were large. Try this place you will not be disappointed.

Thank Terry T
