The Brake Pad by Jerry Portwood
Creative Loafing (02/20/2002)


Sister location to the popular Oakhurst Universal Joint, the restaurant bar is the hangout for the growingly hip crowd in College Park. The bar food choices are augmented by interesting daily specials. 5 STARS!!

Zagat Survey 2006

"This quirky converted old gas station in College Park is a great place to refuel near the airport, offering basic American fare with flair, including buffalo chicken quesadillas to die for; the hip staff without attitude usually hits on all cylinders."

Rated Excellent for Zagat Survey in

"When I want a burger and a little scuzz after getting off a plane, I can get both at the Brake Pad, one of those old service stations that transformed into a neighborhood joint the way a snake sheds its skin. Love the patio, like the burger, appreciate the smart selection of beers on tap."
