Quaker Steak & Lube is a casual dining restaurant chain based in Sharon, Pennsylvania. The original restaurant was built in 1974 by George "Jig" Warren and Gary "Mo" Meszaros in an abandoned gas station in downtown Sharon, and decorated with license plates and old automobiles. Originally a "cook-your-own-steak" establishment, Quaker Steak's signature dish is now its chicken wings and the variety of sauces used to season them. As of 10 August 2010, there are 42 restaurant locations, with the majority operating in eastern Ohio and western and central Pennsylvania. Locations do, however, span the United States including one location outside Denver, Colorado and another location in the Sunshine State in Clearwater, Florida. There is talk of opening a locating in Indianapolis, IN at the former Loon Lake Lodge restaurant which closed in June 2010 according the IBJ.
