I ate at Nu Grille for the first time about a year ago and remembered the food being pretty tasty. So after our games on Thursday, quite a few families from our baseball team visited Nu Grille for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find they had a party room we could squeeze into. The waitresses did a fine job... More

We ate at this place because the menu looked good and the prices reasonable. At first appearance I was impressed because of the number of customers but the service was poor. After sitting for several minute I finally got up to get a waitress. Only had one vegetable choice. I was never offered a refill on my drink. I noticed... More

Excellent food and service. The booths, tables and bar stools will make you feel like you are back in the glory days of the hamburger shop. Local owned and operated by folks that frequented it back in the day! Best Susie Qs around.

Stopped in here because of reviews I had read. Ordered a double cheeseburger and onion rings. The burger patties were hand patted out and seasoned well. The burger was topped with grilled onions, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pickle. This is definitely an old school burger with the juice dripping from your hands! The onion rings were home made and were... More

This was the first place I checked out when I came to Fort Scott and it set an amazing tone for the rest of the weekend. The food was delicious and amazingly priced. I wouldn't hesitate to go back on another visit.

I love burgers, put it this way, if I didn't have self control I would way over 400lbs. My mother and I were traveling to Oklahoma and she started raving about this burger place they had stopped at. So ofcourse let's go. As you walk in it is a standard mom and pops type place. Kinda small for as busy... More

The outside has not changed since the 60's. The inside is comfortable and the food is great and very affordable. When was the last time you said that about a restaurant? The service is friendly and the servings are much larger than you expect for the price you are paying. Do yourself a favor and stop here. You won't be... More
