Quaker Steak & Lube, a Pennsylvania-based chain famous for its chicken wings, is set to open its second Louisiana restaurant in Gonzales by the Cabela’s store.
A Quaker Steak location in Denham Springs, near Bass Pro Shops, is also in the works.
The Gonzales restaurant at 2706 S. Cabelas Parkway is scheduled to open June 10, said a Quaker Steak spokeswoman.
Quaker Steak is hiring about 120 people to work at the Gonzales restaurant. The restaurant will have seating for about 250 people.
There are more than 55 Quaker Steak restaurants across the U.S., including one in Sulphur. Quaker Steak offers chicken wings with a choice of more than 25 sauces, along with hamburgers, sandwiches and barbecue ribs. The chain got its name because the first location was in an abandoned gas station.
