Waze POI search result are currently coordinates returned from Bing. Bing maps shows Quaker Steak and Lube on the other side of Parkwood which would seem to cause the issue. The best way to have this corrected it to have Bing correct the location.

I will have to try it next time I'm up there. I thought maybe someone had misspelled "State"

Wrong driving directions Hwy 121 in Plano

Postby txtorn80 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:45 am

When routed to Quaker Steak and Lube in Plano, TX if going Westbound on 121 it routes you underneath Dallas North Tollway and shows it on the Northbound service road between Granite Parkway and Parkwood Blvd. The actual location is between Parkwood Blvd. and Preston Rd. in front of the Container store. A better route would be make a U-turn under Parkwood Blvd. I have created a landmark for the correct location. Any help correcting this would be appreciated. A permalink is attached below.

txemt, The place looks like a garage with cars on lifts, drop lights, motorcycles hanging from the ceiling, etc. They have burgers, wings, salads, cheesesteak sandwiches. If you dare try them they have a triple atomic wing sauce (500,000 Scoville Heat Units) and if you take the challenge you get a t-shirt and your name on the wall. No engine cooked steaks, sorry.
