WESTLAKE, Ohio — TA Restaurant Group has opened its first Quaker Steak & Lube Express walk-up concept in Gary, Ind.
Located at 2510 Burr St., the new quick-serve Quaker Steak & Lube counter-service dining concept offers customer favorites, like: jumbo bone-in wings, grilled boneless wings, breaded boneless wings, and fried chicken, all of which can be sauced with any of eight signature sauce choices; steak sandwiches; half-pound steak burgers; salads; wraps, crispy shrimp; mac & cheese; and a variety of side items, such as Lube Fries and Lube Chips.
“We are excited to bring this new walk-up concept of The Lube to professional drivers, motorists and the Gary community,” said Bruce Lane, vice president of Quaker Steak & Lube. “We understand that eating great tasting food that is served quickly is a priority for those who are dining on-the-go. Quaker Steak & Lube Express combines quick service with food and flavors guests won’t find anyplace else on the highway.”
Open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, Quaker Steak & Lube Express customers can dine in food-court-style seating that can accommodate more than 110 customers and is surrounded by six wall-mounted TVs to watch sports and games.
