A recent visit to Ft Scott, on a very hot August day, enabled us to dine at the Nu Grille Cafe. Upon arriving at half past 12, the restaurant was very busy with folks in a variety of garb, overalls and work shirts as well as suits and ties. We found two empty spaces at the counter where the smiling... More

This is a great place for breakfast. Just a small town type atmosphere. They had big portions. All the locals seem to go here.

When I was growing up, two local places served broasted chicken as does this place and it was delicious as is the Nu Grille! Instead of broasted potatoes you have several choices and my baked potato was huge, buttery, and wonderful. The 'combination salad' had to have Thousand Island dressing to complete my trip down memory lane. My friend and... More

We stopped after reading the reviews here and had a great lunch on the way home from vacation. Delicious burgers and basket of fried goodies in the sampler platter! Very friendly servers, and friendly atmosphere for our 8 mo. old, though no changing station for him. Already looking for an excuse to head back to that part of the state... More

The best little mom & pop diner in the Midwest! They smash your hamburger patty as they put it on the grill, the spuds are fresh cut, regular or curly, and everything on the menu is wonderful. Breakfast through dinner, the meals are "down home."
