Nu way weiners...

My Mama and Daddy love these things - probably because it was such a treat to have when they were kids. I have never been fond of the hot dogs here but they do make a DELICIOUS chocolate malt!

There are several Nu-Ways in and around Macon. Unfortunately the one Downtown on Cotton had a fire and is currently closed pending renovations. However a sad occasion that may be, there are other locations to get your "fix." I like the one on Hillcrest Ave but there are locations on Northside Dr., Zebulon Road and North Ave in Macon. They...

It is so nice to see a downtown hot dog stand. The Nu-Way on Cotton Ave. in downtown Macon will be a 100 years next year. The hot dogs are good and you can tell the Greek influence in the chilli. Great service and good to get off the interstate and see a different part of America.

I grew up in Macon, left the year I married. I was back in town for a high school reunion. Drove around Macon to see how much things have changed in 40 years. Made a point to stop at Nu-Way downtown. I remembered the restaurant sign, but couldn't remember if I ever ate there. When I took my first bite... More

Nu -Way makes one of the best hot dogs in America. Original all the way - is the way to order it. They also have the famous flaky ice - it really is different in a great way. The sweet tea is real and really sweet. The downtown location is the original and the vibe is real. If you are... More

I went to Nu-Way Weiners original location in August 2014 and the food was worth the drive. The staff at the restaurant was very professional and the food tasted fresh and delicious. I had two chili dogs and the chili was delicious and the French Fried were wonderful.

If you are driving from Atlanta to Savannah, this is a good place to stop by for a quick meal (and one of remarkably few on this stretch). The food was simple, good and cheap: we had a classic hotdog, a chili-dog, fries and sodas for $ 12. We enjoyed the friendly and fast service and particularly the decorations consisting... More
