Quaker Steak & Lube® has quickly become one of the fastest-growing restaurant chains in the country. The company is on track to open 12 restaurants this year and another 12 in 2013.

Currently, there are two Quaker Steak & Lube® restaurants in Texas in Waco and Carrollton with a new location in Plano that opened in January.
The compelling decor, including race cars suspended from the ceilings, motorcycles, Corvettes and gas station memorabilia, combined with its craveable food and supercharged events, has created a cult-like following for The Lube®, as fans call it, for more than 38 years.
"We're honored to continue to build the brand in our home state of Texas and introduce The Lube's® signature flavors and menu items to residents in our community," said Mohammed Amin Lakhani of Salt & Pepper Restaurants Inc. "We look forward to expanding Lube Nation in the months and years to come."
