Elizabeth City


Although Nu-Quality was originally located in downtown Elizabeth City, it was moved to this location in 1960. Since then, is has become a staple in our community, and it will always be our first home! Other than fresh paint every few years, we have kept the building in its original state, to keep that vintage feel, that our customers love! 

We have four large tables to fit plenty of guests, plus umbrellas to give you some shade. In addition, our fifties music creates a fun, comfortable atmosphere for all of our visitors.
