Is there one of these near Cincinnati? I'm up for the weekend and have time to kill before tomorrow's game.

Yes... Off I-275 (Colerain Avenue/US 27 exit. The stores and restaurants including Meijer, Olive Garden and Logan's Steakhouse are part of what's called Stonecreek Town Center.

I've passed them, but I've never eaten there. I heard the wings are good. True?

Can't be true. Wings are terrible everywhere.

Never been a fan. For national chains, I prefer BW3. The best are usually local joints that serve wings with some meat on them.

They're approximately 90,000 times better than the BW3 wings. They actually have meat on them and cover their wings in sauce. I only go on Tuesday night (all you can eat).

I think the OP meant to type this into Google but entered it into the "submit new thread" box instead...

Perhaps, but the beauty of Redszone is, there is a vast array of knowledge and people willing to share that knowledge. Google could tell you if there was one in the Cincy area, probably couldn't tell you that one of them is gone down hill significantly (not saying that is the case here) or has a special promotion, etc..

Regarding Quaker Steak specifically, I'm with Yahtzee, I prefer BW3 better myself, though its been a while since I've been to either.

I like BW3's sauces but I think their wings have gone downhill considerably. You used to get a wing with a pretty good chunk of meat on them, now not so much. I have had Quaker Steak before and thought they were pretty good.

Maybe its just me, but the thought of Quaker State Lube just isn't very appetizing. I get a mental image of frying fries in a vat of SAE 30 Weight.

I agree with the first part but I don't go on Tuesdays anymore. The rush to keep up with the volume leads to poor wing quality. Ordering them off the menu on any other day is the way to go.

Quaker Steak is a Pittsburgh thing. I ate at the one in Wheeling/Triadelphia a couple years ago. It was expensive but the food was good.

We have a BDubs here in Parkersburg but I've only been there twice since I've lived here.

I'd rather not pay full price for 30 wings though haha...

This is the most underrated catch ever. I think that aside from the one where he broke his wrist and held onto the ball, this is Griffey's best catch ever. Kremchek has 6 foot tall 4 or 5 action shots of this (or used to) in his office. Freaking amazing.

:thumbup:

I can't stand poultry in any way, shape or form.

As for Quaker Steak and Lube, generally mediocre all around food wise. I like the concept, though.

Wings aren't good and Billy Hamilton isn't an athlete, this is the world Doug lives in.

JUST JOKING DOUG DON'T GET MAD AT ME! ;)

Yes, it is.

Ham Loaf works out well for all us, along with Turkey for everyone else.

Just to avoid confusion for anyone not sure where that comes from, I said Billy Hamilton isn't a super athlete, but do think he is very athletic.

Last time I was there (I-71 / Polaris exit near Columbus) hot biker girls had water hoses out washing motor cycles. I did not care about the food after that but it was decent.
