Opened in 1934, now has a drive-up window and indoor seating at cute counter with stools or booths. Nice staff- friendly & efficient. Loose-meat sandwiches, pork tenderloins, frito pie, hot dogs, great onion rings, ice cream desserts. Reasonable prices! Worth a trip!

I enjoy going here, brings back childhood memories and I love the Nu-way sandwiches. The place is small but I love the charm of it and makes me feel like I am back in the day

I suggest Nu-way to anyone visiting. It is a great local drive in. We go every couple of weeks. Service is fantastic. Always friendly faces on staff. Food is typical diner food that is makes a great lunch stop.

I stop in at Nu-way Drive In every time I visit Leavenworth! It is nostalgic for me, as I have been visiting for over 60 years. Gotta get the Nu-way with onions and mustard (original way). What amazes me, it has been in the same...More

The hamburgers are made from loose meat--just scrambled hamburger, the bun was soggy. Blah! The fries were crisp, the service was good except they didn't offer to refill our drink. Disappointed!

Came through to grab lunch, ordered chicken strips. Forgot my sauce. I went inside to grab it and it was incredibly smokey in there, like they don't have a good ventilation system for their grill. Chicken was good, fries had a fish taste to them...More
