BURGERGUYZ: Quaker Steak & Lube, Austintown, OH

Quaker Steak & Lube has great wings,

but how do their burgers rate?
By Anthony M. Fuda
In 1974, Quaker Steak & Lube opened as a motor-sports themed gas station restaurant. And quickly they become renowned for their award winning wing sauces. Thirtysix years later with restaurants in 15 states, QS&L’s burger is getting the stamp of approval from the Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board (MVBRB). We reviewed the Austintown location, which has been open since 2006.

    “They might be known for their wings, but they have an excellent tasting burger,” said Jerry (JT) Tranovich.
Our server, Amber Magada, took our burger orders and made sure everything was prepared to our satisfaction, probably wondering why this group of guys didn’t have buckets of wings in front of them.
    There was a page of 1/2 lb burgers to choose from, with a choice for every taste. From the Roastin’ Red-Pepper Jack Burger (jalapenos, pepper jack, roasted pepper), the Mustang burger (hickory BBQ sauce and provolone), the Smokin’ Bills Biker Burger (american cheese and bacon), to the signature Lubeburger (with mushrooms, bacon, hot sauce, american cheese and a blue cheese dressing).
    The burger’s came with a garlic toasted bun, lettuce and tomato. Everyone agreed the burger’s taste was enhanced by the combination of bun, toppings and seasoning. Filling out the racing-themed checkered plate were thick seasoned fries.
“Two Meat” Mike Flarey said, “The Lubeburger was excellent. The hot sauce made it very tasty.”

There are TVs in all corners and if a sporting event is on, you can find it here — especially any racing event.

    This family-friendly motor sports themed restaurant is fun for the entire family, and has great burgers as well as wings.
    While you are waiting for your food, there are many different pieces of auto memorabilia to view, including cars hanging from the ceilings and walls. This is truly THE place to go for the auto racing enthusiasts.
