Lance Matthews, our star corporate chef, is just as excited about the new options as we are. Here’s what he had to say about the additions to the menu:

“It’s always a great time to have fun with great friends over great food. We are excited to roll out this new menu that offers guests trendy tastes that pair well with our brand. For instance, the crispy pork belly street tacos and sliders – they are amazing.”

The new menu options span across all courses, from appetizers to entrees, and are designed to appeal to a wide-range of guest preferences — from juicy burgers to light salads and more!

First, dive in and share some of our newest appetizers to hold you over until the meal comes:

  • Cheese Curds & Lube Chips – The Lube’s house-made Lube Chips with real Wisconsin Cheese White Cheddar Cheese Curds piled on top. Served with a new and improved beer cheese.
  • Bavarian Pretzels – Four Bavarian soft pretzel sticks are served with beer-cheese dip.

  • New York Strip Steak – A new 12 oz. USDA Choice Aged Beef New York Strip Steak seasoned and grilled to the guest’s desired temperature.

If you’re longing for a lighter approach to your main course, we’ve also got two new salads for you to try — ones that will certainly make your tablemates jealous.

  • Pecan Chicken Salad – Crispy, pecan-crusted chicken breast, atop craveable fixings, tossed in new Sweet Onion dressing.
  • Honey Stung Chicken Salad – Fried chicken tenders, hand breaded in a special blend of Harissa spices with smoked chili peppers and garlic, served atop a bed of salad trimmings.

When asked about the famous offerings that make The Lube so special, John Ponczoch, Senior Vice President at TravelCenters of America had this to say about the classic menu items:

“While we’re bringing a lot of new items and flavors to guests on this menu, guests will still find their craveable favorites. Our bone-in and boneless wings, fork-tender ribs, pub-style fish and variety of sandwiches are still on the menu for guests to enjoy. And don’t forget dessert! The Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie and Cake Shake are guest favorites!”

With summer rapidly approaching, we’re ready to start serving our newest meals in both our relaxing patio dining areas and inside near our TV’s hosting the games and races. In addition to grabbing a bite to eat, guests are encouraged to stick around for our summer entertainment, motorsports themed decor, karaoke, classic car nights and more!
