Quaker Steak & Lube – Newport News, Virginia
Quaker Steak & Lube has quickly become one of the fastest-growing restaurant chains in the country. The unique décor combined with award winning food has created a cult-like following of families, couples, and singles alike. Originally founded in 1974 in a vacant automobile service station, customers were given a simple menu of burgers, salads, baked potatoes and it’s ever popular “cook your own steak”. But the primary attraction was The Lube’s compelling décor of race cars, hot rods and motorcycles hanging from the ceiling. Today, The Lube is famous for its buffalo wings and serves over 80 million wings annually. The company has won 100’s of local, national and international awards including “Best Wings USA” and has more than 60 Quaker Steak locations in multiple states across the U.S.
