The theme of the restaurant went perfect with the name Quaker Steak and Lube. Really cool. The kids loved the race cars that were mounted from the ceiling. Pretty cool.
As an appetizer we ordered wings with Chipotle seasoning. The batch of wings came out overcooked. So we sent the batch back. The second batch was much better, but to say that they were known for the best wings, it didn’t appear that way to us.
If that’s your speciality, then you should be the best at frying and saucing wings. Not a good start to the meal.
The drinks were referred to as Unleaded Fuel. We ordered the LUBE-N-ADE a cool refreshing drink that was hand squeezed and shaken. The flavors that were available was Strawberry, Mango or Wildberry. The strawberry lube-n-ade was delicious. The straw was like a gas nozzle. So cool.
For an entree my stepdaughter ordered the hot wings with ranch and the fried cheese with marinara topped with more parmesan cheese. I didn’t try any of it. But she said it was good. The entree looked ok.
The kids meals were known as the Kids Club Cruisers. The meals were served in a boxed car; Cute idea.
I ordered the Mac and Cheese Chicken Pasta with green beans as my side. The dish was a corkscrew pasta tossed in a Chipotle Cheddar-Pepper Cheese with blackened chicken and topped with Cheddar-Pepper Cheese served with seasonal veggies on the side.
The pasta was served with fries instead of veggies, but the waiter caught the mistake and took care of it. He quickly came out with my green beans.
The dish was good, it wasn’t great. The pasta didn’t come out pipping hot like I expected that it would. But taste wise it was good. The green beans were cooked well and seasoned perfectly.
Overall, we weren’t impressed with the food at Quaker Steak and Lube. The food was just average. Nothing to rant and rave about. Maybe it was because they had only been opened a few months. Not sure, but if the restaurant will remain open, they will have to tighten up their seat belts and steer their cars on to a Victory.
As for the Customer Service, the waiter did a good job waiting on us. He made sure we had everything we needed. The service wait time was a little slow, but thankfully we weren’t in a hurry.
