2 all the way with slaw, no onions is my favorite! Food is always hot & fresh! I love the chili cheeseburgers also! Friendly, polite staff!

Nu-way is special. The food is excellent and value great. The sad part is that the original location is no more, so this is more about nu-way generally, but still true. The hot dogs are bar none the best. The chili, the slaw, the onions, the mustard are all perfect. Yes, the dogs are red, that's part of the charm.... More

I like to try non-chain, weird, offbeat, hole in the wall or old restaurants when I'm on the road. So this place was a natural choice. The food and service was good enough but I just couldn't unwrap my head from those RED hot dogs. It's not a color one sees in nature very often unless it's part of a... More

Order 'em "all the way". Mmmmm - DELICIOUS!!! I bought 20 double wrapped for the freezer. They freeze well, so you can enjoy them for quite a while.

This was my first visit to a Nu Way Weiners. The breakfast was basic sandwiches and biscuits. I hear through reviews the hot dogs and lunch are the claim to fame so I may try it again. The facility is dirty and the location is subpar. Latest food score was 88 so a little low for my taste.

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.
