I can't believe it took me all these years to discover Nu Grille Cafe restaurant in Fort Scott, Kansas. This is the kind of classic place and food that I am always looking for. Nu Grill opened in 1946. The front room has a nice classic counter where you can watch the food prepared and there are three additional dining areas.
The made to order cheeseburgers with grilled onions are good, but I particularly enjoy the Nu Grille's homemade onion rings and French fries. And the food is cheap! A hamburger is only $1.99, homemade French fires or Sussy Qs are $1.69, Frito chili pie is $2.89 (less expensive than it was in 2010).
The chile is another good choose, they use an all meat chili for Coney Islands, but layer it above the beans in the bowl of chili.
A limited breakfast menu including fresh made hash brown potatoes is served until 11AM daily at Bowman's Nu-Grille Cafe.
