Founded in 1974 and built in an abandoned gas station in Sharon, Pa., the original Quaker Steak & Lube began as a cook-your-own steak restaurant, before expanding to over 60 locations throughout the United States and Canada. The unique decor, including race cars suspended from the ceilings, motorcycles, Corvettes and gas station memorabilia, 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 25 different wing sauces. Most recently it was named the 2013 Festival Favorite at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, New York. For more information, visit www.quakersteakandlube.com.
