With a spacious outdoor patio, extensive craft beer list, and industrial feel, UJoint has become a local watering hole in the trendy Decatur area.
Serving cedar-plank salmon filets just comes with the territory at UJoint. To enjoy lighter fare, enjoy the salad of field greens packed with proteins. Tossed with fresh cucumbers, ripe tomatoes, and red onion in lemon dressing, the salmon salad at Universal Joint in Decatur has quickly become one of our go-to healthy picks.
Sometimes you just want to go all in, and when that’s the case you have to indulge in the signature Patty Melt. A true classic, the patty is topped with sweet caramelized onions, earthy mushrooms, and ooey-gooey Swiss cheese. What takes this diner fave to the next level? The creamy dressing soaks into the crisp rye bread to create one of the more dangerously addictive sammies in the city.
