2011-07-14 01:38:00   I've been to Quaker Steak in OH and PA, glad to see them here. Now I can get some Louisiana lickers —DamianKumor

The all you can eat wings is a great value and the servers actually make their job fun. The decor is great for any car enthusiast and their bike nights are HUGE. Highly recommend. —mbetush

2011-11-28 14:12:13   Tried it for the first time Sat. Server was very attentive and friendy at first. Once our food came, we didn't see her again until after we were done eating. I had wings (Buckaroo BBQ), sauce was good with a nice kick to it, but wings were relatively small. The rest of the party was relatively disappointed in their food, mostly because everything came out luke warm. May give it another shot in the future, but certainly won't go out of our way to plan another meal here. —WestSideB

2012-01-13 17:55:05   Tried QS for the first time today for lunch. We shared a single order of wings (traditional sauce, medium heat) and a cheeseburger/fries. We were surprised to receive just 9 average-sized wings for the $8.99 price. The wings were nicely cooked but the "heat" of the medium sauce was mild at best. Not even a hint of a kick. Cheeseburger and fries might have been decent if they hadn't been luke-warm. It was a very light lunch crowd, so no reason for the food to sit back in the kitchen cooling. Like WestSide, never saw the waitress again once the food was delivered. Probably would go back for All-You-Can eat wings for $10.99 (Tuesdays, I believe). Short of that, no plans to spend $1/small wing again. —LizDee

2012-02-07 15:57:47   I've grown up with Quaker Steak, being born and raised in Western PA. I was glad to see one up here, and I feel the quality is just as good, if not better. As for the wings, yes, they are a little on the smaller side, but they have specials virtually everyday on wings that make it worth the while.

It is now also my go to spot to watch UFC events, as they have very good beer/wing specials and no cover. The staff is very friendly and I cannot recommend this place any more. —mbetush

2012-06-09 08:51:29   Went when it opened.. it was Ugly Sweater night. I was unimpressed with the wings as they were only truly edible once I drowned them in the blue cheese. The Lickers flavor, to me, tasted like a ripe gym sock when unadorned with said blue cheese. Probably will never go back here for the rest of my life... Not out of pure hatred, but because nothing about the place was memorable. —BatGuano
