The food was mediocre at best. The server didn't seem to care when I took the raw bacon off my sandwich and set it aside. She didn't seem to care about anything. She had no enthusiasm AT ALL. Her monotone voice almost put me to sleep and she barely looked at us. My husband and I sat in the bar,... More

Very nice sports type bar and restaurant. Love the theme and the decor. The menu was interesting with the wing choices. Love a place that serves different levels of heat in the wings. Everything was delicious. Easy to find off 12 and 14 near hotels and shops.

The food was OK but it was hard to talk because of background noise. The setting was good for car fans but could not hear what anyone.

My wife and I were on our third leg of a trip from North Carolina to northern Minnesota. We saw a sign advertising Quaker Steak and Lube. Having eaten at one before and having been impressed, we let our GPS lead us about 15 miles off I-94. Quaker Steak and Lube is a restaurant chain capitalizing on the motor oil... More

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

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.
