League City Welcomes Quaker Steak & Lube Restaurant
Quaker Steak & Lube has applied for a permit to construct its 7,800 sq. ft. restaurant, which will be located in the Victory Lakes Entertainment District, League City. Restaurants can be found in 19 States and one location in Toronto, Ontario. There are three locations currently open in Texas: Waco, Carrollton, and Plano (which opened in January 2013).Construction will be evident to those travelling along I-45 South; the building will be close to the Jimmy Changas Restaurant which opened its doors in November 2012.
The history of Quaker Steak & Lube states the following on the company's website: "It was 1974 when our country had its first gas crisis. The price of gasoline was skyrocketing, gas stations were closing nationwide, and carmakers began exploring how to develop cars that got better mileage. But for George “Jig” Warren III and Gary “Moe” Meszaros, it wasn’t about better mileage or for that matter even obeying the new 55 M.P.H speed limit. It was about finding a home to preserve the culture of those old gas stations and high-powered muscle cars. So was born Quaker Steak & Lube®, a “Cook Your Own Steak” restaurant that gave old muscle cars a permanent home, which included a 1936 Chevrolet, frozen in time on the original hydraulic grease rack. It is from these beginnings that the Quaker Steak & Lube® family of restaurants began. Today, “The Lube®” serves over 80 million wings annually, has bottled sauces for retail sale, has won the title of “Best Wings USA,” and has hundreds of local, national, and international awards for their sauce recipes. Over 45 locations in multiple states across the US, “The Lube®” is still rescuing muscle cars, vintage cars, trucks and a vast selection of custom and antique motorcycles, giving them good homes hanging from the walls and ceilings in each restaurant."
