Quaker Steak & Lube

Quaker Steak & Lube: This place is a cool old gas station that was converted to restaurant where they have even kept an old gas pump outside. If you are a gear head like me then you will love the décor of this place with race cars and other paraphernalia from the auto service industry of an age gone by. This places servers up over 70,000 wings a year and so you can see why that is what they are known for.

In the place where wings reign supreme you can get them in over 20 different flavors that range in heat levels from Ranch to Atomic. There are flavors such as Asian Sesame, Louisiana Lickers, and Pineapple Rum, I personally want to try the Dusted Chipotle BBQ. The menu is full of classic diner grub if you don’t want any wings, but why would you?

If you are one who love the heat and wants to test your taste buds, eat an order of 6 atomic wings and you get your name on the Atomic Wall of Flame and a bumper sticker. These wings are fresh jumbo sized wings that they coat with their homemade habenero hot sauce. These are so hot they even have you sign a Hold Harmless and Indemnification Agreement to even try and eat them, which is how you know they mean business. I am not a spice guy and never plan on trying these but those who are, you are in for some Crazy Eats.

The Burger from HELL

August 11, 2009

Coyote Bluff: This place is know for one thing, the “Burger from HELL”. All the burgers here start off at 1/2lb and are covered with a stainless steel bowl after flipping to cook them all the way through with steam, now that is a novel idea that I will have to try sometime. You ever do that to melt the cheese on your own burger creation? I have, it works great! There are ten different burgers that they offer but the “Burger from HELL” is a whole other beast.

The “Burger from HELL” starts life like the rest of the burgers but that is where things go all wrong, or right, and that depends on your point of view. They then turn this into some real Crazy Eats by adding a cup full of grilled jalapenos, some homemade habenero sauce and cayenne sauce are add to this inferno. To finish it off they smother it in a handful of mozzarella and cheddar cheese on top then put the stainless steel bowl over it to melt it into a delectable piece of hell.

This place is full of good, hearty food and they have a strong following so expect line. Also get the chili cheese fries, 2LB of fries, 1LB of cheese and plenty of green chili’s on top for some more spice.  Look forward to eating in a classic old greasy spoon and enjoy yourself.
