Traveling to Kansas City and needed to have dinner. So glad we got off the main road just to try this little local place. The food was good! Fried chicken meal was spot on! Didn't have room for pie, but maybe next time!

Stopped here on the way home. A very old classic grill, has a bar to sit at. We sat with people who were locals, this place has obviously been here a long time. I had a cheese burger and curly fries, and my daughter had a full order of biscuits and gravy, there were both amazing.

Went there for pie after eating at another restaurant. I'm not a local but sure wish we had something like this back home. It was the Homiest place. I just loved it. Went back for breakfast the next day. Good food and great value. They make their own pies. mmm. apple and cherry was what we had.

Food is good - Old fashioned and maybe a little on the greasy side, but the service is very friendly. Reminds me of the typical small town diner where everybody knows everybody... nothing special, but very popular with the locals.

I was born and raised in this town and the Nu Grille has been her forever....The service is exceptional and they have good ole' greasy hamburgers and curly fries...Homemade pies also. They are American through and through with the waitresses wearing T-shirts that say "We support our troops" Just good small town eats.

Good food and good service. I had the Southwest burger. Jalapeño, bacon, pepper jack cheese. It was great. Husband had the double Cheeseburger. With everything included Grilled onions . Homemade French fries. He said it was the best he'd ever had.

We stopped in for the first time for a quick breakfast. It wasn't quick...at all, but the eggs, sausage patties and toast were good, and hot. The has browns were mushy, if we go back I'll ask them to leave mine on longer. It's a neat place and it's worth the trip. Next time we'll have to try their burgers.

This is a very small cafe in the heart of Fort Scott. From the step into the front door I would not suggest that it is handicap accessible. From the stares it's clear that this is a local hangout where everyone knows everyone and strangers are scrutinized. The staff was kind and we didn't have any problems. There were a... More
