Welcome to Parenthood: Awesome

As restaurants go, Quaker Steak & Lube is pretty cool: a service station crossed with a 50s diner theme, cars and motorcycles hanging from the ceiling, and fantastic food. Kyle was suitably impressed with the decor, but the icing on the cake came during a visit to the men’s room.

“Wow!” he exclaimed. “A new kind of toilet! This restaurant is awesome!
