Nu-Way Weiners celebrates 100 years


One Macon restaurant celebrated a big anniversary over the weekend.

Nu-Way's been “grillin' the special flavor” for the past 100 years.

Bright red hot dogs on the grill await their toppings before they go into the hands of hungry customers at Nu-Way Weiners on Zebulon Road.

Charles Wolf has been eating them since he was a kid.

“Let’s see…I probably ate my first nu-way downtown when I was 5 or 6 years old and I'm now 81,” said Wolf.

But the best part? The chili.

“It’s just spicy enough. Now sometimes when I eat out here, it gets a little spicy. It makes my head sweat and I really feel like I’ve got my money’s worth,” said Wolf.

Not much has changed at Nu-Way over the past 100 years; not even the recipe for their signature chili that goes on their hot dogs.
