Nu Way Cafe

1416 W Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS - (316) 267-1131
Posted By Vince Indelicato on 1/30/2004 4:46:00 AM
Introduced to NuWay by my in-laws, I found NuWay to be a delightful change of pace, one not to be found many other places. Loose is definitely better, and the specials on the NuWay's themselves can't be beat. But be forewarned, size descriptions can be decieving. A regular/medium is about the size of a typical hamburger, but a large is served on a 5 inch bun. I prefer to go with two mediums rather than a large, as the crumbly nature of the NuWay makes a large hard to eat without wearing some.

The onion rings are definitely crispy and not too greasy with just the right amount of batter. The only complaint I have is that the chili is a little wan (needs more spice for my taste). However, the taste of the root beer is the best (and worth taking home!).

If you go, be prepared to wait for a table, as the location is small. But, if you are willing to wait, the food, and atmosphere, can't be beat.

Very creamy home made root beer served in a frosty mug. I couldn't resist taking a sip before I took the photo.

This is the original Nu Way Cafe. There are now five locations in Wichita. They specialize in loose meat sandwiches of the Maid-rite style.

A Wichita favorite, Nu Way's version of garlic salad is supercharged and for serious garlic lovers only.

Also known as originals and Nu Ways, the loosemeat sandwiches come wrapped in paper calling them crumbly burgers.
