We stopped here on our way to KC, and we're glad we did. The burgers are made similarly to Sonic, and the onion rings were crispy, with a good flavor. The waitress was very friendly. If you like small diners with good burgers, this place is a good choice.

Stopped here twice on recent trips to the Fort Scott Historic Site & National Park. The atmosphere is local and friendly. Very much a grill as far as food goes and they are known for their burgers. Clean, fast, friendly service and the food tastes good. Close to the National Park (well, Fort Scott just isn't that big), we walked... More

We went here on a weekend drive. Like many small towns, Fort Scott has limited dining options on a weekend afternoon. We chose the NuGrille Cafe based on reviews. Frankly, I wanted to like it a lot more than we did. We sat at a booth and someone gave us a menu and told us the waitress would be there... More

Just a nice small town place to eat. Great breakfast. And the cinnamon rolls are really good hot. A lot of food for the price, too.
