Great cinnamon rolls

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.

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

Took a recommendation from the locals when we stopped. It was busy so there was a small delay in service, but worth the wait! Great home cooked food. A word to the wise- if you order a large serving of onion rings, be prepared for an entire platter! There were 7 in our group and there were plenty for everyone.... More

I read the reviews and was intrigued. We arrived and I began to think we had made a mistake. But honestly, it was really good. Yes, it is typical greasy diner food, but it was good. Server was nice and helpful. If you are in this area might check it out

If you had a hometown diner or burger joint in your hometown in the " 50s " or wonder what it was like, you can step right into that world ( again) at this cafe. It 's just about 4 times bigger now is the main difference. The burgers with grilled onions and buns haven't changed in over 60 years.... More

Party of 7 came in out of the rain to have breakfast before leaving town. We all had breakfast food at 9am. Hash browns were nicely browned, bacon was crispy and over easy eggs we're cooked to order. Biscuits and sausage were delicious. Waitress took orders efficiently and remembered everything! Coffee and tea were quickly replenished. Service was friendly and... More

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

If you want a quick home cooked meal with large portions; this is the place. Very close to Old Ft. Scott Museum. You won't be disappointed. Onion rings are fantastic. They were freshly cut, battered and you get a half plate full with the cheeseburger.

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