Quaker Steak & Lube, a revved-up chain that has close to forty locations across the country and specializes in wings (with 22 sauces!) opened its first Colorado spot yesterday, at 10392 Reed Street in Westminster. We sent photo intern Johnny Molfetta to snap some shots for your viewing pleasure. There's ample parking available, both outside for your car and inside for yourself. Racing paraphernalia covers the walls, floors and ceilings -- including the Sun Harley Motorcycles, hanging above -- and it's all for sale. The Brickyard is a side bar, with garage doors that open to the elements when the weather is good. The Corvette room is a private seating area -- with a Corvette hanging from the ceiling. Although all of Quaker Steak & Lube offers vroom service, only the NASCAR features a gigantic Dale Junior car hanging right above your head while you eat.
