Primo's Tex-Mex Grilles
Looking for great Tex-Mex that is distinct? Then choose what the locals choose. Established in 1986 by two cousins - hence the name Primo's - and using family recipes, Primo's fast became a local favorite. Whether it's after work cocktails, a leisurely meal or late-night appetizers, Primo's is the place to see and be seen. Serving stuffed jalapenos, deep-fried tacos and sizzling fajitas, Primo's is a favorite late-night watering hole for Local Chefs and those in the Hospitality Biz. Primo's is the place where those "in the know" go. Shouldn't you?
Primo's is proud to announce that our newest location, on the lakefront overlooking Lake Ray Hubbard next to Bass Pro Shops in Garland, Texas, opened in February of 2008.

Quaker Steak & Lube - Clearwater, FL
The year was 1974; the country was in the midst of its first gas crisis and the price of gasoline was skyrocketing. Speed limits were soon to be set at 55 M.P.H. nationwide, gas stations were closing and the call went out to develop cars that got better mileage...but what to do with those old gas stations and high-powered muscle cars?
Enter George "Jig" Warren III and Gary "Moe" Meszaros to save the day. Well maybe not necessarily the entire day, but certainly one old gas station and a bunch of muscle cars, by turning the abandoned station into the Quaker Steak & Lube, a "Cook Your Own Steak" restaurant. They gave the cars, which included a 1936 Chevrolet, frozen in time on the original hydraulic grease rack, a loving home. The concept was so successful that Jig and Moe were able to hire a cook so their customers no longer had to do their own cooking, and the menu was expanded to include a variety of family friendly foods, including chicken wings.
It is from these beginnings that the Quaker Steak & Lube family of restaurants began. Today, "The Lube" serves over 50 million wings annually, has 16 bottled sauces for retail sale, has won the title of "Best Wings USA," and has over 100 local, national, and international awards for their sauce recipes. With 20 current locations in seven states, "The Lube" is still rescuing muscle cars, vintage cars, trucks and a vast selection of custom and antique motorcycles, giving them good homes hanging from the walls and ceilings in each restaurant.
Come check out the Quaker Steak & Lube in Pinellas at 10400 49th St. Clearwater, Fl 33762. We have Bike Night every Wednesday from 5-9PM. On SUNDAY, MAY 25, 2008 join us for Bike Night. You can enter to win a 2008 FXD Dyna Super Glide, But YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN!
