I had chicken that was green, that should say enough. This place is way too small and the staff is very rude. I heard them talking about patrons in a very negative way. Ownership that have been identified to me on several visits are not very friendly.

This is a great spot for a nice night. The patio is great and we love that it is pet friendly. Service can be a little rough on busy nights but the food is pretty good!

Good drinks and a great atmosphere. Friendly service and an interesting place to people watch. Food is good for pub food. Have a few TVs for sports but I wouldn't go there for that.

Good neighborhood bar. Love the patio and that it is pet friendly. Good bar service. It is a great place to cap off a night. It has a good patio for the warm weather.

Pet- and vegetarian-friendly place with trivia nights and good cheese fries: what more could you want? Service sometimes a little slow. Good beer selection.

Me, My hubby, and our roommate live close by have been going there for 6 yrs or more!
Sometimes, they hire the occasional catty waitress or waiter but, they can't be perfect all of the time.

Once a great neighborhood bar, now a place of lousy food and extremely bad service. You see a new face at the bar or a new server and you think, "Let's give them another chance," but you WILL be disappointed. Very disappointed.

This patio will absolutely boom this spring once it warms up. That's sad because this great little neighborhood bar will quickly turn into an overcrowded mess. Oh well, I'm gonna enjoy it while I can. I recommend the burgers & chicken

Really good burgers. If they have the hand breaded chicken strips definetly try them. Good beer selection and full bar. Always a good mix of people. Service can sometimes be slow, but sit back and drink a beer. Dog friendly.

The UJ is a bit too cozy for its own good sometimes, but its invitingly dark atmosphere, no-frills vibe and great bar food make it worth adding to your late-night orbit. The burgers are filling and tasty, and the drinks are agreeably

Built out of a former two-bay garage in a gentrifying south Decatur neighborhood, Universal Joint deals in snacks, salads, and light noshes. The burgers are popular, but we have a hard time getting one cooked as we order it. Get it well…
