Best thing on the menu!

Southern Chicken Salad Sandwich

This is a true Southern chicken salad. Juicy chicken with a bit of crunch from the celery and nuts. The bread is tasty too. Plenty large enough to fill your belly without being too heavy. YUM

Best black bean burger of all time. Make a substitute for the Universal Fries (no bacon for the vegetarian/vegans), you're welcome

Order the nachos "Tacho" style! ( sub chips for tatertots) The Tater tots at UJ are amazing and the combination is awesome!

Universal Fries

Great joint to get a drink and quick meal. Prices are low and food is really good. The patio is nice and they open garage doors when weather permits. I highly recommend UJ. Dog friendly too!!

The gyro is fantastic!!! Get it with the tots and you can't get more Greek than that as both were invented by King Leonidas in 480 BC!!

U Joint

We had drinks only! We were on a road trip from Buffalo, NY to Tuscaloosa, AL via Tennessee. Spent the night at The Read House & had gone out for dinner on the river. Decided to walk back & stopped at the Universal Joint. It was so hot, it was like seeing a mirage! The atmosphere was wonderful, friendly & drinks were super!

The Steinbeck

I was pleasantly surprised by the Steinbeck! The bacon- jalapenos combo seriously hit the spot. The outdoor space is also perfect on a sunny day!

Grilled Chicken & Arugula Salad

UJ has great food, but this dish is probably my favorite. It's fresh, filling, and you leave not feeling miserable from eating too much. Their dressing for this dish is incredible. A must try!

Don't let the arugula fool, you this is straight-up one of the best BLTs you will have in town. Go all in with the pimento cheese. Seriously good stuff.

Best chicken salad I have ever tasted..

Grilled Chicken & Arugula Salad

UJoint has great angus burgers, buffalo chicken salad and grilled salmon, but my ALL TIME favorite dish EVER is the Grilled Chicken & Arugula Salad. Fresh baby arugula, crumbled feta, mandarin oranges, cranberries, pecans and the BEST LEMON ZEST dressing I have ever eaten. It's a lunchtime staple-especially on their awesome patio, in good weather!

I am not a huge fan of lamb, so I get mine with chicken instead. The sauces are wonderful and the meat is cooked perfectly. Filling but not heavy. One of my favs from UJ.

Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla

I loved this quesadilla! The blue cheese really allowed for it to be eaten without the spice becoming too much! I'm not usually a fan of spice but this is a great dish! 10/10 will try again!

Chicken Tacos

I had the chicken tacos with an order of tater tots 4 years ago on a first date. When the tacos and tots were brought to the table, I wriggled with joy. They were delicious. I attribute the tacos, tots, and universal joint to being the start of a beautiful 4 year relationship with my fiancé. We're going back (we live in Nashville now) for our 4 year anniversary and recreating our first date with some more delicious chicken tacos! Universal Joint is the bomb!

Southwest Chicken Quesadilla

Love UJ's food! Favorite is the Southwest Chicken Quesadilla. Also the ginger soy sauce is delicious on just about everything, especially the grilled chicken. Best tots in town as well!

Black Bean Patty

Delicious burger. My meat eating friends kept asking me for a bite of my bean burger and they all said next time they'll order that. Service was friendly and fast. Great dining experience

Universal Fries

Let me just start by saying "UJ" could easily stand for "Utopia Joint." Everything I have tried there has been utterly mind blowing, from the homemade ranch to the perfectly seasoned and cooked dishes. The atmosphere and staff are equally as enjoyable as the dishes themselves. I am an avid cheese fry eater so trying the Universal Fries was my first line of business and there are simply no words. The fries themselves offer the most delicious base for pure heaven to be put on top. This is a must do when visiting Chatt, living in Chatt, or simply needing some heart warming.

Arugula & Mushroom Quesadilla

Why did I wait so long to try this??? After eyeing this menu option for over 3 years, I finally tried it. Amazing! The combination of ingredients imparts perfect flavor along with the meaty texture and flavor of the portabella mushrooms. My mouth is watering as I type this. Mmmmm.

This is always my go to sandwich at UJ. The pimento cheese is the best in Chattanooga.

BBQ Brisket Nachos

The brisket nachos are so good and they give you a huge portion! My husband and I have tried other things as well like the arugula and mushroom quesadilla (which is my favorite) and he really loves the chicken tacos. Every time we go to UJ the experience is great and the food is always delicious!

Sunset Dip & Salsa

This is my go-to appetizer at UJ. SO YUMMY and the perfect snack to share with your table before the meal. Definitely some of the best queso and salsa I have ever had. Thank you, UJ!

Absolutely love the burgers here! Meat is always cooked perfectly and the flavors will literally explode in your mouth!

Blackened Tilapia Tacos

I literally go out of my way just have these. Perfection in every way. Ask for a side of coleslaw if it's on the menu that day and be prepared for fireworks! Huge portion of fish, perfectly seasoned.

Grilled Salmon Salad

The grilled salmon salad was phenomenal! The piece of salmon was larger than I expected and grilled to perfection. The leafy greens were fresh and crisp. Not to mention, the flavor was out of this world. I also enjoyed the tangy lemon salad dressing that accompanied it. The perfect touch to enhance the overall flavor. 10/10 would recommend!
