As if having the Pittsburgh Penguins in town for their series against the Philadelphia Flyers wasn’t bad enough. Now, we get word today, via the Pittsburgh Business Times, that chain Quaker Steak & Lube, which is based in Sharon, PA, has plans to build three restaurants in the Philadelphia region.
Actually, this is great – legitimately, and not sarcastically.
Quaker Steak & Lube is known for its wings, and they have 22 sauces to prove it, ranging from the mild Ranch flavor to the out-of-this-world-hot Triple Atomic.
The restaurant was featured on an episode of the Travel Channel’s “Man Vs Food.” The show’s host, Adam Richman, was able to conquer the challenge – do you think you have the guts to do it? Soon enough, you will have the opportunity to find out.
The first Philadelphia-area restaurant is scheduled to open in April 2013, although the exact locations were not disclosed. In total, Quaker Steak & Lube has opened six new restaurants this year, will open 12 more before the end of this year, and have franchise agreements for 35 more.
