nothing special here.Cleanliness overall was questionable. Portions were large and good. Large seating capacity. Entertaining atmosphere.

There is nothing outstanding about this restaurant either positive or negative. It can be a fun place to go with family or a friend for a leisurely meal. The food is good and the service is fine.

Great atmosphere and food. Plenty of TVs in the Bar section to watch multiple games while enjoying a cold beverage and hot food. Service is very timely and attentive. Bathrooms are clean and the price is very reasonable for the amount of food you receive. I recommend this place if you are in the area.

I needed buffalo sauce quick, they met that need in spades. Prices are getting over $10 for all entrees plus food is only ok. Boneless wings are definitely frozen. Wife loved the strawberry lemonade. We sat at the bar but they were understaffed, only one bartender to service 12 guests, the tables in the bar and the waitresses during March... More

Been coming here for years. Love their nachos, onion rings and steak. The drinks are either excellent or awful. I ordered a daiquiri once and it was the best one I'd ever had and when I ordered another one it was like pink water (and I like weak drinks). I sent it back and the replacement one was better but...

Our visit was a good one. I ordered the loaded fries which could have been fresher, but I had them put them back in the microwave to soften up the cheese. The wings were good and the service was good too.

Over the last year the quality of the food has gone down but the prices have gone up. The menu has changed and certain specialties are now limited to one day a month.

I'd seen these restaurants before but didn't have the chance to try one until now. A coworker and I were traveling on business and he had been there and it's one of his favorites. So I agreed and loved the atmosphere as soon as we walked in. I ordered the Philly Steak sandwich and it was amazing. But even better... More

They have some great food items---the biker chick salad is very good. The noise level is so bad that you can't carry on a conversation with the people at your table.

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.
