TA's Quaker Steak & Lube Develops New Fall Food Lineup
WESTLAKE, Ohio — Quaker Steak & Lube is showcasing bold new tastes on its new menu for fall. Special entrees, desserts and drinks are available for a limited time at Quaker locations across the country.
Featured on the menu is the Coffee And Spice Crusted Pork Loin, glazed with the chain's signature Kentucky bourbon sauce and served with bacon-balsamic brussel sprouts and potato-filled pierogi pastas. Diners can combine this with Jameson Peach Smash, a whiskey mix that is hand shaken and served over ice, and the Berry Blend Shortcake Sundae, which mixes four types of berries that are served atop a shortcake biscuit and served with vanilla bean ice cream.
At lunchtime, diners can order the Stop-Light Grilled Chicken Sandwich, which is made with flame-grilled chicken, melted cheddar cheese, red pepper, onion, pineapple and a drizzle of Smoked Jalapeño Honey sauce.
"The fun doesn't stop when summer ends at The Lube — it gets amped up!" said John Ponczoch, senior vice president of TravelCenters of America and leader of the TA Restaurant Group. "Fall is a great time to try these bold new flavor combinations. And, we've taken all the guesswork out of it for our guests by creating these great pairings."
As part of the fall food lineup, Quaker will continue to offer its Bangin' Drums!, which are three times larger than its Jumbo Wings and flavored by one of 20 sauces.
Through Sept. 30, Quaker will make the Bangin' Drums! available for $7.99. Additionally, the chain has partnered with musician and producer Tod Rundgren, who had the hit song "Bang the Drum All Day" in 1983 and in 2013 founded Todd Rundgren's Spirit of Harmony, a non-profit that supports music and music education. For every order of Bangin' Drums! up to $10,000, Quaker will donate 50 cents to the foundation.
Quaker Steak & Lube has more than 50 locations in 14 states. Part of Westlake-based TravelCenters of America LLC, the TA Restaurant Group includes more than 850 quick service and full service restaurants and other food outlets, including 10 proprietary restaurant brands.
