Quaker Steak & Lube to Open in Waco, TX
Quaker Steak & Lube, known for its Best Wings USA and more than 20 sauce varieties, will bring a new restaurant to Waco, Texas. The Lube will open to the public on Wednesday, September 12, at 3 p.m.
The restaurant will create close to 200 jobs for the area and will be the second Quaker Steak & Lube location in Texas.
The new Lube encompasses a 7,300-square-foot design that accommodates more than 342 people, including the brickyard patio and two bars.
"By opening two new Texas locations within two weeks, we are really stampeding across the state," says John Longstreet, president and CEO. "We know the Waco community will enjoy our award-winning food and beverages, real motorcycles, authentic cars, and be a welcome addition to the great state of Texas!"
Highlights of the new Waco Lube include three Harley's hung from the ceiling, a 1972 Corvette StingRay, and a Tony Stewart NASCAR car. The Back Yard Buddy, an automotive lift that allows for full access to the bottom of a vehicle, will be displayed over the buffet. All vehicles displayed will be filled with vegetable oil.
The brickyard patio has seating for 16 at its far, and guests can watch their favorite teams on 32 TVs, including five 70-inch LEDs, throughout the restaurant.
The Waco Lube will feature appetizing menu selections and will hold supercharged events all week, including all-you-can-eat wings on Tuesdays, Wednesday Bike Nights, Breaded Boneless Thursdays, Car Cruise-Ins on Sundays, and all-you-can-eat lunch buffet on Monday-Friday.
For convenient food to go, the Wace Lube will also feature a Pickup Wingo Window and the restaurant will be launching online ordering on the brand's website.
