Had the slaw dog, so good I had to have another! I get a wiener every time I am in Macon. My vegetarian wife is not a fan but some times I just need a fix.

Oldest restaurant in Macon, local legend. Dogs are tasty and the service borders on rude...actuallt racist in a few locations (towards white people). Breakfast is underrated and very good and cheap.

Closed. Burned down a few years ago. Plans are to rebuild in the future. Now it's a vacant lot. There are about 6 other Nu Way restaurants in Macon.

Nu-way is special. The food is excellent and value great. The sad part is that the original location is no more, so this is more about nu-way generally, but still true. The hot dogs are bar none the best. The chili, the slaw, the onions,...More
