The place is small, but easily forgotten once the smell of the food hits you. The staff is friendly as well as professional. The atmosphere is busy but not crowded. Service is quick and best of all accurate. The prices are low to average for...More

We wanted to try a local restaurant off the beaten path, thought we'd give Nu-way a try. We ordered a variety, large Nu-way burger, tenderloin, onion rings, fries and mushrooms. The large Nu-way loose meat sandwich had no seasoning in the meat, the tenderloin was...More

This establishment has changed hands over the years, but has the same delicious food made around. My parents would take us there when I was in grade school and they still have the best malts and hamburgers. Would highly recommend.

This is a great place to get crumbly burgers that have taste. Add some french fries to this and you have a great meal. Don't take the burger out of the wrapper all at once or you'll have the burger all over the place. They...More

Opened in 1934, now has a drive-up window and indoor seating at cute counter with stools or booths. Nice staff- friendly & efficient. Loose-meat sandwiches, pork tenderloins, frito pie, hot dogs, great onion rings, ice cream desserts. Reasonable prices! Worth a trip!

I suggest Nu-way to anyone visiting. It is a great local drive in. We go every couple of weeks. Service is fantastic. Always friendly faces on staff. Food is typical diner food that is makes a great lunch stop.

Nu-way does not look like much from the outside but their diner classic food is great. Loose meat sandwiches, hand breaded tenderloins and fried pickles. You will smell like grease when you leave and your arteries will be a little more clogged but that is...More
