HST said that, he would have liked the night I spent in the Nu Way. A trio with Shane Pruitt jams this soul groove that really worked in the tight quarters of the Nu Way. I must say they handled it all like pros...

We went here because their Redneck Burger was voted best in SC. For me the food was just okay. I would say check it out if you are local but don't go out of your way.

We expected a dive from the reviews, but I am blown away how it is possible that this place got South Carolina's best burger. We tried the top 3 burgers and they went from ok to terrible.

I've been to Nu Way numerous times for lunch. The offerings on the menu have very colorful names. My favorite is the Redneck Cheeseburger. It's basically a hamburger with pimento cheese on it. Don't scoff; it's good! Good place for a burger and a beer.

My second visit here, I had a taste for hotdogs even though the menu has wonderful choices to choose from. I had a couple of onion rings from a family member and they were very good also. I will be a repeat customer.

The Nu Way is what comes to mind when I hear the phrase "dive bar." Small building, dark atmosphere, and not much in the way of decorations. On my first visit to the Nu Way, I ordered the redneck burger. Fresh hand patted burger, pimento...More

A dive with the best "Redneck cheeseburger" in town and a surprising number of good beers on tap. people have used Tripadvisor as a way to say the Chick Fil A is one of the best restaurants in town while the Nu Way isn't even on the list. It's awful!
