Not just your standard UNO Grill, there is a small brewery tucked into the side just past the main bar. We visited during the cask ale festival, where the brewer poured ten beers from his place and from a handful of local breweries. Not crowded at all, which was a very pleasant change from the throngs that seem to pack festivals these days. Beers were tasty. Worth a stop any time.

Average house beers, large open restaurant with good pizza. A 10-tap cask festival was ongoing during our visit, so lucky us. Nice, prompt staff.

Pizza pub in Metuchen. Food is what youíd expect. Beers range from average to excellent. The IPA was one of the better brewpub IPAs Iíd had in awhile. Worth a visit.

Located right off Highway 1, this Uno is located near a bunch of other chain-type restaurants. After you get the íturn right to turn leftí thing down, head on over here because this is the only Uno I know of that brews their own beers! Parking shouldnít be a problem.

The atmosphere is similar to most other restaurants in the chain. The bar is separate from the restaurant and has TVs above it. There is a lot of brick inside and they have some of their beersí logos painted on the walls which I thought was a nice touch.

Now the beer. I was expecting a half-assed attempt at some brewpub-type beers but I was surprised that most of the beers were above average. You can purchase a sampler of all the beers in rotation for $5. I thought the IPA and Porter were well-done. Thankfully the &quo;Uno Amber&quo; was nowhere to be found.

It was pretty slow on a Tuesday night and the bartender was pleasant and knew the beers pretty well. She was even kind enough to lend me a pen and paper to write down my beer notes since I forgot to bring them.

The food at Unoís is consistent. It isnít stellar but it isnít bad either. It is the same quality you get from places like TGI Fridayís, and around the same price too.

Overall this was a nice find. Now I can only hope that the rest of the chain follows suit and starts brewing!

Yes itís a chain pizza place (one of the better oneís by the way)...but this location is "not" like any of the others...they brew their own beer!. Although this may not be a secret to locals and long time customers...itís a rare thing for a chain to allow one of their locations to break the mold. Although Iíve been aware of this place for some was the "chain" mentality that kept delaying a visit. Luckily I was there yesterday for the 3-4x/yr cask ale event. Boy was it worth the trip! Great cask ales from Kane, Carton, Flying Fish, Climax, Bolero, & of course UNO. All the beers were great & several featured variations from the standard recipe of that name (ex. Bolero added pecans & maple syrup to one of their standard recipes). The best part was talking to the people who came...regular beer nerds like me...along with people from Flying Fish, Bolero, and others. Chris the brewer at UNO is a very nice guy & enjoys answering beer questions. Although I canít guarantee your experience will be as good as mine every time...this place is definitely worth a visit.

Very good service. Nice, helpful and friendly man behind the bar who knew what he was talking about. Atmosphere was suprisingly nice for a restaurant chain. Nice brick walls, wooden interior, copper vessels int he back. Food is good, avererage pub food. Selection is pretty good for a brewpub.

Decent selection of beer. Surprisingly well made. Had the sampler. 6 five ouncers for about 5.50. I think the food quality at this Pizza Uno is below par for the chain, however. Ordered the same pizza I get just 5 miles away in South Plainfield, and the quality of the sauce and the appearance was so different and nowhere near as tasty. So that aspect was disappointing. Their Root Beer is great too, by the way.

Itís a Pizzeria Uno with a microbrewery attached to the left-hand side of, honestly, what more could you ask for?!?!? After 10 pm they have half-price pints and snacks, and they always have a decent selection of their own brew on tap. Service is always well above average for a chain, and Iím not afraid to admit I like the food, either. (update: service at the BAR is always good, but table service is slow and sh*tty.) Stop being a snob and go check the place out.
