Awesome chili dogs and chili cheeseburgers! Don't forget the fries. Go on Monday-Wednesday and get the 3 for 2 deal!

Good dogs, worth the adventure! I went to the Zebulon road store. Wasn't the same building, but a local landmark for sure.

Absolutely the best little red chili dog in Macon. All the way or plain. Great slaw dog. The chili burgers are awesome as well. The fries are good too. And you must try the breakfast - great biscuits with whatever you want on it. They have great shakes too. Very similar to varsity in Atlanta.

Nu Way is an institution. Out of any hot dog I have ever had it is my favorite. Loaded with chili, onions, and mustard- they are simply perfect.

Good but not great. They use those little RED hot dogs very very small. Condiments are good, service is great.

I had been told about how delicious the Nu-way food is. I loved the Nu-way hot dogs, but the patti melt was not worth what was paid for it. I could've gone to McDonalds and eaten better.

This was the best place to get a hotdog. Can not wait until they finish rebuilding. I have been to the other Nu-ways but there is nothing like downtown nu-way.

Unfortunately an icon in Macon has been leveled to the ground due to a fire that completely gutted the place. No word on when or whether they will rebuild or relocate.

The best Hot Dog ever made. I go here at least once a month. The staff could be little nicer but mostly are pleasant. My order is always correct. This is a great tradition of Macon.
