Nu-Taste is the kind of no-frills, old-fashioned diner that is mighty appealing when you wake up to a sunny day and feel a crisp breeze coming off the nearby lake.
The restaurant offers many combinations of egg-and-meat combos, omelets, sandwiches, salads, chili and entrees such as chicken-fried steak, chicken strips and grilled ham. Everything is priced less than $7.
We ordered two of the chalkboard special breakfasts for $6.95 each.
One featured a good-sized hamburger steak with grilled onions, a mound of good home fries, sourdough toast and two eggs cooked over-medium. The hamburger steak was a bit overdone near the edges but fine in the middle.
A thin, butterfly-cut pork chop centered the other plate that also included two eggs, hash browns and biscuits with a flavorful cream gravy.
Another special that day was sweet potato pie for $2.45 a slice. Pecan pies and fruit pies regularly are available.
