Quaker Steak & Lube debuts fall menu

Quaker Steak & Lube, the motorsports-themed casual-dining chain, debuted its fall menu systemwide Tuesday and is scheduled to enter the New Jersey market Wednesday.

New dishes developed for the concept’s fall menu include such entrées as Greek Feta Chicken, Tex-Mex Chix Queso Mac, Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese, and Philly Cheesesteak Pasta Bowl. Additional items include Backfire Boom Boom Shrimp coated with Boom Boom sauce, Steak & Bleu Salad, and Baja Chicken Wrap.

The Sharon, Pa.-based wings specialist also added two new wing sauces: Dusted Mango Habanero, which won an award at the 2012 National Buffalo Wing Festival, and the spicy-sweet Boom Boom sauce.

“One goal of this menu was to bring signature chicken breast and pasta features to the local marketplaces where guests can enjoy traditional American cuisine with a Lube twist,” said Katy Malaniak, senior director of food & beverage, in a statement.

The price range for the new fall menu of sandwiches, burgers, salads and entrées runs from $8 to $18.

Quaker Steak & Lube is also scheduled to open its first location in New Jersey Oct. 10. The Brick, N.J., branch will offer seating for about 290 customers in 6,880 square feet of space. Décor elements will include a 305 Sprint Car donated by Jeff Taylor, a hanging 72 Sportster Harley Davidson, a license plate collage with all 50 states represented, and a Red Corvette for the Vette Room.

With the opening of the Brick, N.J., location Quaker Steak will have 56 company and franchised units in 16 states and Canada. In September, the chain had said it is on target to open 13 restaurants and inked new development deals for six new markets.

In September, Quaker Steak & Lube also made its inaugural push into the new market of Texas, opening a company location in Carrollton and a franchised unit in Waco.

In addition, Fred Dreibholz is expected to take over as chief financial officer Nov. 1.

Quaker Steak & Lube debuts fall menu - Recipes

This review came as a suggestion from one of our readers. Recently, my wife and I went on a weekend getaway to Cincinnati and being a fan of chicken wings, I’m always eager to try new places especially when those places claim they have the best wings in all the land. So you can imagine my high expectations.

As you can see below, the decor is strictly meant for the racing enthusiast. Side note, the Buckeye’s aren’t that friendly of people. I was getting a lot of weird stares and dirty looks from the patrons. So I’m glad I waited until the end of the meal to take pictures.

Case in point… this lovely lady. (click to enlarge)

This guy who could not for the life of him stop staring at me. (Bronchos #58 Von Miller)
Maybe he knew that I’m a Colts fan or maybe Andrew Luck was standing behind me?

Anyway, back to the food… Here is the Menu

Being the fried pickle connoisseur, my wife ordered them up as our appetizer. She really liked them, especially the extra added dill to the batter. They were just ok for me. I prefer Dill chips over the spears.

For the main course my wife ordered the “New” Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese. It was actually good.

Obviously, I ordered the wings. That is why we came in the first place. I did find it pretty odd that the wings were not listed on the menu until the 9th page , right before the desserts. I mean, come on. If you are known for the best Wings in the USA, you need to have them featured right after the appetizers on the menu! Fail Quaker Steak, fail. Also, you don’t tell me how many wings come in an order. Is there some secret wing society that has declared how many wings belong in a single serving. And whaaat is a Sprintster? I was a bit confused. And to add to the confusion… what kind of sauces do they have?? Oh wait.. Those are on the very last page of the menu. Of course, what was I thinking?? No wonder people are so angry at the restaurant.

So I ended up ordering the Supersize Single. Like I have said in other Wing Reviews (BW3’s), you’ve got to give me lots of sauce options, more is better. And Quaker has a lot. One of my favorite sauces is the Spicy Garlic at Buffalo Wild Wings, so I decided on the Golden Garlic. They look pretty good right?

They weren’t bad, they were not the best I’ve ever had, but they weren’t bad. I should have ordered them wet. They were not that saucy, despite how they look in the picture. The sauce was butter-based. Which is not my favorite. The quality of the actual chicken wings were about average. They weren’t fall off the bone tender, which immediately would have pushed them up to a B+. I also really wished I would have tried another sauce, I may have left a more satisfied customer if I had. The Golden Garlic was not that spicy according to my standards. It was actually pretty tame. If there is a next time, I would try their Cajun or Supercharged sauces.

This was definitely a cool restaurant. The atmosphere was something like Cracker Barrel on testosterone and racing fuel with all the stuff hanging everywhere. The patrons were kind of weird with their death stares at me and my camera, but I can over look that. I would rate Quaker Steak and Lube 3.5 chicken wings out of 5. I really wanted to rate it higher, but the wings were just average. Maybe my expectations were too high, but if you’re going to plaster the words, “BEST WINGS USA” on the front of your building, don’t put them on page 9 of your menu. At any rate, the door handles were cool.

In 1974, gas stations across the country were closing in the aftermath of the 1973 oil crisis. George "Jig" Warren III and Gary "Moe" Meszaros came up with the idea of preserving the culture of old gas stations and high-powered muscle cars. They opened Quaker Steak & Lube, initially a "cook-your-own-steak" restaurant that showcased old muscle cars. The original location includes a 1936 Chevrolet on the original hydraulic grease rack. [2]

On November 16, 2015, the company was acquired by TravelCenters of America (T/A) immediately after Quaker Steak & Lube filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. T/A plans to expand the chain both in its chain of truck stops as well as in standalone locations. [3]

Locations Edit

As of October 2016, there are 50 restaurant locations in 12 states. The majority of the current locations operate in eastern Ohio and western and central Pennsylvania. Locations do, however, span the United States including one location each: outside Clearwater, Florida, Council Bluffs, Iowa, Gary, Indiana, Portage, Indiana, Sulphur, Louisiana, Columbia, South Carolina, & Sevierville, Tennessee There was also a Quaker Steak & Lube location inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from 2009 to 2014. The original location in Sharon, PA hosts Bike Nite every Wednesday in the Summer. This tradition has expanded to other locations as well.

Awards Edit

As of 2009 [update] , the chain has won over 100 awards. [6]

The Pointe at North Fayette location in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was featured in the Travel Channel series Man v. Food. [7] The episode's challenge was to consume six "Atomic" chicken wings, at the time the strongest wings on Quaker Steak's menu. [7] Host Adam Richman completed the challenge in the allotted time and was awarded a commemorative bumper sticker and a place on the restaurant's "Atomic Wall of Flame". [8]

The franchise has since discontinued Atomic and added a "Triple Atomic" sauce, which registered 500,000 Scoville units. The Triple Atomic was discontinued and replaced with an even hotter sauce, the scorpion pepper-based Eat Heat. In order to complete the hot wing challenge, one must sign a waiver.
