On The Road: Nu-Way Weiners in Macon, GA

by Bryan on October 20, 2009

NW-SignI’ve heard of Nu-Way Weiners (Warning: very obnoxious soundtrack on web site) for years. However, since Macon is the home of Fincher’s, I have never ventured to a Nu-Way to sample them. This trip I decided to make the sacrifice, and give it a shot.

On our recent vacation, we planned on stopping at the original in Columbia, SC as we traveled from relatives in Rock Hill, SC to Perry, GA.

Part of the attraction of the place is a family connection. My mother-in-law is a Bessinger, although no one is sure how close that relation is. Maurice is a somewhat controversial figure.

Five Guys just opened up on Calhoun in Clifton Heights. Not sure if today was the first day, but it is still listed as “Coming Soon” on their web site. In case you miussed it from the name, this place specializes in burgers and fries. The restaurant is riddled with rave reviews, and lists of […]

Downtown Eats: Nada

December 17, 2008

We found ourselves with the luxury of a night on the town when our church sponsored a parent’s night out. We could drop the boy off and hit the town. So we wanted to try out a new spot. I had heard one of the local bloggers rave about Nada, and we like our Mexican, […]
