Established within the realm of White’s Truck Stop in Raphine, VA, this new Quaker Steak and Lube restaurant and Museum offers a new dining experience for visitors as they take a break from their travels on Interstate 81. In total, this design build restaurant/museum is 14,374 square feet and displays a vast collection of interior features connected to motorcycles, cars, and garage themed components.
Throughout the facility, guests will have the option of sitting at tables, booths, or a fully serviced bar. Additional features include a fire place, gift shop, and even a museum wing. Quaker Steak and Lube is a restaurant chain that does not cheat their design and décor appeal. Walls will have ample photos and other memorabilia to compliment the ultimate fast-paced theme. In fact, a full size car will be displayed within dining room at the bar, too.
Needless to say, the design of this restaurant/museum is extremely vibrant. On the exterior, a mix of brick, aluminum, EIFS, and neon lights will wrap the steel joist and column structure. The roof will have a membrane covering installed upon a very gradual slope to direct water and debris collected on top. Aluminum storefronts will be clearly visible as well as many multi-pane windows. The museum will feature many of the Owner’s collectible antique vehicles, toys and other memorabilia.
