A dive with the best "Redneck cheeseburger" in town and a surprising number of good beers on tap. people have used Tripadvisor as a way to say the Chick Fil A is one of the best restaurants in town while the Nu Way isn't even on the list. It's awful!

Great Pub Fare in Spartanburg, SC

My wife and I recently moved to Spartanburg, SC, from Ohio, and during our first week here we visited the Nu-Way for dinner one evening. I had lived in Spartanburg approximately 30-years ago, and I visited the Nu-Way often then, and not much had changed in the décor… it is not a show place, just a... read more

This is a small bar with some food and load music, the biggest appeal is that they have live bands. The drinks and draft beers are OK. you can go with friends and get something to eat (not really a restaurant with drinks) more of a bar with food. Good atmosphere and the staff is on the ball. You get... More

We stopped in for lunch with the family. This is a great bar but they also have great food. There was 12 of us and we were luck to grab some tables and put them together. We are greeted right away, the service was very good as always. we ordered a variety of items, onion rings, redneck burger (my favorite),... More

The food was great. It was a Saturday night & we were with a group of 12 or so. We had one waiter for the group who took drink orders from 1 table, brought them back & then went to the next table. It was over an hour before he took our food order. I'm thinking maybe he had to... More

Excellent greasy-spoon food! Great crowd and sometimes you can catch an awesome band! Be prepared to be packed in, as it is a small place.

If you are looking for a run-down local pub with good bar food then this is your spot. Very casual atmosphere with friendly patrons and staff

Went there and ordered the Redneck Cheeseburger. People rave about this and it actually is wonderful. It has homemade pimento cheese as an ingredient and this may just be what makes it so good. Atmosphere is not much in this place but people are friendly. Fun place to get a burger!

Like your hamburgers? Then you don't want to miss the Nu-Way. You won't get any better anywhere near Spartanburg! They have a lot of unusual variations, or get it your way. Sides are variable in quality. The place doesn't look impressive from the outside, and is no great shakes inside either, but don't let that stop you. The quintessential old... More

Sometimes you have to try out a joint or a dive just to tell your friends that you've had the experience. The problem with Nu-Way is that you'll have a good time and get great food. It won't be just a one time event. It looks sketchy on the outside, but you'll be warmly welcomed inside. The Redneck Cheeseburger really... More
