Award-Winning Casual-Dining Franchise Debuts New Made-to-Order Chicken Tenders

Quaker Steak & Lube Introduces Top Gear TendersThe Award-Winning casual-dining franchise Quaker Steak & Lube, known for its Best Wings USA and more than 25 sauces, announced today that participating locations nationwide will feature Top Gear Tenders. After months of culinary research, The Lube has debuted a superior and boneless tender with exceptional flavor as a new addition to its existing menu.

“If you love chicken wings, our new Top Gear Tenders are the perfect alternative for guests who enjoy a boneless chicken breast,” said Megan Duniec, Senior Director of Marketing at Quaker Steak & Lube. “As we continue to celebrate our 40th anniversary, these new fresh chicken tenders, developed by our culinary team, will continue to prove why The Lubeis known as Best Wings USA.”

Freshly sourced chicken breasts are cut into tenders, which are then marinated for eight to nine hours before being placed in a buttermilk batter.  Top Gear Tenders are then hand-breaded upon order, resulting in a tender that finally lives up to its name.
