Another bit of advice for when you do head that way is to turn in to Legends Crossing at the entrance near Chuy's, then take your first left. That road will take you to the Quaker Steak & Lube parking lot.
Because it's my job to be in the know about local restaurants, I made it to The Lube almost as soon as they opened. My buddy Brett and I split a bucket of wings — half Louisiana Licker and half haut parm — and pretzels with Guinness beer cheese. Delicious.
While I was there I spoke with marketing manager Kevin Huffines, who told me there will be live music on the patio tonight. Sounds like fun to me.
I also spoke with general manager Shawn Dunham and service manager Tanisha Morrow, all of whom were excited to finally be serving customers after months of planning the Quaker Steak & Lube opening.
