Classic OLD SCHOOL joint for quick local fare!

It was good enough for Oprah when she came through town last, so for quick food at a fair price, TRY IT. Kids like it, adults appreciate the simplicity of it. A chili dog, a coke with shaved ice, slaw dogs, fries, keep it simple. They are hoping to rebuild the Downtown Cotton Avenue location... read more

Nu Way is an institution. Out of any hot dog I have ever had it is my favorite. Loaded with chili, onions, and mustard- they are simply perfect.

Good but not great. They use those little RED hot dogs very very small. Condiments are good, service is great.

I had been told about how delicious the Nu-way food is. I loved the Nu-way hot dogs, but the patti melt was not worth what was paid for it. I could've gone to McDonalds and eaten better.

This was the best place to get a hotdog. Can not wait until they finish rebuilding. I have been to the other Nu-ways but there is nothing like downtown nu-way.

Unfortunately an icon in Macon has been leveled to the ground due to a fire that completely gutted the place. No word on when or whether they will rebuild or relocate.

The best Hot Dog ever made. I go here at least once a month. The staff could be little nicer but mostly are pleasant. My order is always correct. This is a great tradition of Macon.

Nu Way Weiners are a class unto themselves. Those pink hot dogs are world famous.....and taste great too! My favorite is the slaw dog but make sure you try them all the way....that style comes with awesome chili.

I have lived in Macon Georgia my entire life and I have been eating nu-way since I was a young kid and I am 53 years old and I still love them today as much as I did 50 years ago, if you are a first time visitor to Macon you definitely have to go buy a nu- way and... More
