TA Restaurant Group, a division of TravelCenters of America LLC, opened its first Quaker Steak & Lube Express at a TA travel center in Gary, Ind.
The counter-service outpost will offer many of the same menu items available at the casual-dining chain’s full-service restaurants. The new unit offers food-court-style seating with a mix of tables and booths to accommodate more than 110 customers. Six wall-mounted TVs let guests watch their favorite sports.
Plans are underway for online ordering for busy travelers, and a breakfast menu is in the works.
This is the second Quaker Steak & Lube located in a travel center but the first was a full-service restaurant.
