“Wing lover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

If you like your wings hot and fully cooked then stop by and order a bucket full, yes I said bucket. They have a list full of the sauces as everybody has these days, but their chicken is cooked when you order not waiting under a heat lamp to add sauce to. I have eaten wings in all of my travels from west coast to east coast and these are some of the best.

“Quirky Place, Good Food and Great Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

From the old hand cranked gas pumps outside to the menus resembling a mechanic's checklist, Quaker Steak and Lube provides an interesting journey into the automotive past along with good food. But, the staff was the greatest! Having a very severe food allergy -- fish and seafood -- our waitress was extremely attentative by not only noting the allergy on our ticket but personally alerting the kitchen staff and following up with us several times to make sure everything was ok. Something not always found at very busy restaurants. Ribs were delicious as were my family's chicken wings and tenders. Quaker Steak is a bar with a large drinking crowd the later the evening and at 10 p.m. turns into a nightclub with no one under drinking age admitted. So, if you have kids, go early! Very much worth eatting there and enjoying the historical decor.

“Save your money, don't eat here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We have been three times since they opened and have been disappointed everytime. Service is usually poor, food is never good. The one bright spot is that you can buy their wing sauces and take them home. Wings I made at home with their sauces came out 100 times better than what we were served in the restaurant.

“Poor quality food seemed like it was left over from previous day”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

My family had heard nice things about this chain so thought wed try it on our Easter monday drive home. Really disappointed. Both adults tried the boneless wings salad. Meal took a long time to come so expected something fresh. Salad was shredded lettuce that seemed old, with flecks of carrots. Two pieces of celery were brown and mushy. Chicken was cold tough and did not seem to be cooked today. Hot sauce was good so a real shame to be on such poor quality food. Pita was warm and fresh but not to salvage the meal. Waitress was helpful and friendly. Meal was so poor and slow it seemed pointless to send it back. Kids meals were free. Will not return. Highly discourage even wings fans

“Good stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for late lunch, plenty of racing memorabilia on walls. Food was fine, service was too, large selection. Make sure you ask server what specials are. 16 oz drafts were 2 bucks the day I went, would not usually get a beer but for 2 bucks I tried it and glad I did.
