The floor and tables were filthy, covered in spilled drinks and napkins. Our shoes stuck to the floor and glasses stuck to the table. We had to send back our first blended Margaritas because it tasted like lime flavored water. Instead we went with one on ice which were much better. Our waitress was nice enough once we were acknowledged... More

Nothing pretentious about this place, it is just a good restaurant with good food. Nothing spectacular, but it doesn't have to be. It is good at what it is designed to be, just a nice place to have some decent food and drinks. During the summer months on Wednesday's they have bike night. It can get a little busy, but... More

We didn't realize it was bike night so we were forced to park a little ways away. Tons and tons of people but eating inside made it quicker. They had a band this evening and had a lot of workers based on the crowd. Food was served quickly and was prepared well.

Large menu, good onion rings, steak was okay. Server was very good but manager was a bit rude trying to deliver food to our group.

Worth the trip to Madison for the fair here. Great decor, and the food is delish. Good service, value and cocktails. Working our way through the menu! Hotels in walking distance.

We were on a bus trip and stayed across the street at Country Inn & Suites and ran across the street for dinner. The hostess was very nice and we were seated right away(it is a lot bigger than it looks). The food was very good and the server was smiling and fun. All of our choices were great and... More

Nice place for a quick eat or for a drink at the bar! Separated in two areas - bar and dining. Car shop decor with many retro vehicles literally hanging around. The Kentucky Burger Qburger was delicious, so were the Baby Back Ribs. Keep in mind - when they say their wings are freaking hot, they are NOT kidding!

We sat outside in the middle afternoon and the bartender seemed as though she had other responsibilities taking her away from the area.....I think they need to take a look at how food comes out to the outdoor seating area as when she goes back to retrieve food she is gone way too long.

Probably one of the BEST Brunches we have experienced. Everything you could imagine, and not only wings which you might think. Will definitely go back.

Clever atmosphere with race cars and good food, but server forgot things we asked for after asking more than once for extra napkins and cheese was missing from wrap. Loud music and games right near front door made several kids hyperactive. Really hard on an infant's ears, too.

Description
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.
