About Quaker Steak & Lube®:

Founded in 1974 and built in an abandoned gas station in Sharon, PA, Quaker Steak & Lube® has expanded to more than 60 locations throughout the United States and Canada. The unique décor, including gas station memorabilia, classic cars, motorcycles, race cars and corvettes suspended from the ceilings combined with the crave-able food and high-octane events has afforded The Lube® a cult-like fan following. Today, Quaker Steak & Lube® has become one of the fastest-growing restaurant chains in the country, and has won hundreds of national and international awards for its wings and more than 25 different wing sauces.
