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

I stop in at Nu-way Drive In every time I visit Leavenworth! It is nostalgic for me, as I have been visiting for over 60 years. Gotta get the Nu-way with onions and mustard (original way). What amazes me, it has been in the same...More

The hamburgers are made from loose meat--just scrambled hamburger, the bun was soggy. Blah! The fries were crisp, the service was good except they didn't offer to refill our drink. Disappointed!
