Stopped for lunch and wanted to catch some of the game on TV. This place has a nice bar area. Several TVs. Sunday happens to be happy hour all day. 2 dollars off apps and 1.50 off draft and bottles. Derek was our server. He was excellent. We had a good lunch.

We picked this place as my husband is a total gearhead. The car and motorsport décor was perfect for him, but not too overwhelming for people who might not be quite as enamored. The food was fairly basic sports bar fare, but still quite good and reasonable. Definitely recommended for those who love their cars or just want something with... More

Visiting the area for the first time we walked from our hotel to Quaker Steak and Lube. We were impressed with the service and also with the fish fry. I had the green beans and fresh vegies with the fish fry. Great food, fun atmosphere and great service!

The boneless wings were large chicken nuggets, drenched in the sauce until they were soggy. Onion rings hot crisp and nice spicy dipping sauce. Lot of TVs fore all sports. A typical sports bar.

Do you like Buffalo Wild Wings? Then you will like this place. Lots of TV's with sports on them. Many beers on tap. Many, many wing sauces to go on the pretty decent wings. Decent burgers and other traditional sports bar food. Very kid friendly. Gets full on game days. The nice thing about a place like this is you... More

This is an ok place to go eat but don't expect superior food or service. Like any other hamburger joint.

Very busy. I would describe it as Hooters without the half naked girls. Food was decent. Very noisy. Good to watch football games on a Saturday night.

I'm not a fan of chain restaurants b cause I prefer to support local businesses. One of the advantages of a chain reaction bough is consistentcy, you generally know what I o expect. Quaker State makes wings. The other items in the menu are not as good, so go if you like wings This particular location has some local beer... More

I ordered food through Mr. Delivery. Their part of this was 100% perfect. Quaker State is incapable of leaving off an item (onions) or taking responsibility for screwing up. Fortunately it is a dislike rather than A SEVERE ALLERGY! Since Mr. Delivery collected the money, not them, they really did not want to do anything. Why are onions on the... More

It was 1974 when our country had its first gas crisis. The price of gasoline was skyrocketing, gas stations were closing nationwide, and carmakers began exploring how to develop cars that got better mileage.

But for George "Jig" Warren III and Gary "Moe" Meszaros, it wasn't about better mileage or for that matter even obeying the new 55 M.P.H speed limit. It was about finding a home to preserve the culture of those old gas stations and high-powered muscle cars.

So was born Quaker Steak & Lube(R), a "Cook Your Own Steak" restaurant that gave old muscle cars a permanent home, which included a 1936 Chevrolet, frozen in time on the original hydraulic grease rack.

It is from these beginnings that the Quaker Steak & Lube(R) family of restaurants began. Today, "The Lube(R)" serves over 80 million wings annually, has bottled sauces for retail sale, has won the title of "Best Wings USA," and has hundreds of local, national, and international awards for their sauce recipes. Over 60 locations throughout the United States and Canada, "The Lube(R)" is still rescuing muscle cars, vintage cars, trucks and a vast selection of custom and antique motorcycles, giving them good homes hanging from the walls and ceilings in each restaurant.
