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

This place has been in business for 60 years, according to a sign. Playing vintage '50-60's music out on the sidewalk, but not indoors. The booths were full on a Sat. for lunch. Staff were very friendly and very efficient. Hamburger and fries and hamburger steak meal were very good. The fries were especially tasty and in-house prepared. Highly recommend... More

This is a relaxed diner atmosphere, complete with oldies playing in the background, stools at the counter, and lots of booths. My daughter loves burgers, and she said this one just replaced the former number one on her list. The broasted chicken was really good, with seasoned green beans. Onion rings are yummy. Our suzy q's were cold, so I... More

We passed through Ft Scott headed home from a softball tournament. Boy, am I glad we did. The chicken was amazing, the onion rings are spot on, and the burgers were fantastic! If you are looking for a cold restaurant to eat in to beat the heat, this isn't your place, but if you want fantastic food and great service,... More

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
