NuWay celebrating birthday by selling its crumbly-is-good sandwiches for nearly nothing

Usually, a large NuWay sandwich will set you back $3.69.

But today through Thursday, the chain is selling its large crumbly-is-good NuWay sandwiches for 89 cents apiece — provided you purchase a medium drink first.

The special is being offered in honor of the Wichita chain’s 89th anniversary. Tom McEvoy opened the first NuWay restaurant at 1416 W. Douglas on July 4, 1930 — and amazingly, that location is still up and running. A few years back, it made the Dining with Denise list of oldest still-operating Wichita restaurants.

There’s a limit of one sandwich per customer per visit for the deal. It’s good at all five Wichita locations: 7301 W. Central, 1416 W. Douglas, 6404 E. Central, 3441 E. Harry and 2415 S. Seneca.

And don’t forget that on the final day of the sale — July 4 — the stores will all close early at 4 p.m.
