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

Went late at night for a snack and drink. Decor was awesome, but the only ok thing about the food was presentation. Also got a mixed drink that was really below average. Very unimpressed with the food, drinks, and service. Wouldn't go back.

Relaxed atmosphere makes this a great choice for a casual dinner. The burgers are great and I hear the chicken wings are awesome but I have not tried the wings yet. Prices are reasonable and service is good. It has a bar and can be lively but the dining area is popular with families.

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

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.
