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.

Awesome service!!

I was at Quaker Steak for a going-away party, and we had about 12 people at two tables in the bar. We had people coming in at all different times, and our server, Courtney, was fantastic!! She was so patient with us, and she was a lot of fun! The food was good (it always is), but the best part... read more

Great food, service. Always like their relaxed atmosphere. Magna fries and pretzels with the beer sauce is amazing! Actually, silly thing, but I love their to-go boxes. Black Chinese take-out style boxes instead of the old styrofoam things.

We come here as much as we can. We live in Sun Prairie so it is a distance to travel just for dinner but we do occasionally. The food is always good. We are obsessed with the golden garlic wing sauce and love the fried pickles. The prices are fair and we've always had good service. If you have kids-... More

We all met for a meal and as usual were extremely pleased. As you guessed, anyone interested in cars or racing will be in heaven in this restaurant. That's just the start, because the food is as fantastic as the surroundings and service. Bring your favorite gear head and watch her or his eyes bug out when they're there. It's... More

It's an OK place. Food and service are decent. If you need heart healthy food, it is not the place for you.

Greaes. Known for their wings but they have a great variety of other choices. I think their wings are better then Buffalo Wild Wings. They are larger and have more sauce on them They are sold by weight instead of quantity.

Have been there before, fun place to go the first couple of times. The service wasn't very good and I have had much better food.Very hard to talk with friends as it is quite loud. Don't care if I ever go back.

This was our first visit here and we arrived with our two children around 430 in the afternoon on a Sunday and were told they were in the middle of changing from lunch to dinner and due to this they didn't have as many servers on?? So we would need to wait to be seated, this was doubly odd because... More
