The Brake Pad – Best Lunch Spot near the Airport

I rarely eat out for lunch while at work, but when I do, I love when they let me pick the place because that means we’re going to the Brake Pad haha. There are not many healthy, gluten-free friendly restaurants near the airport, so my choices are somewhat limited as is, however Brake Pad is definitely an exception! It’s located on Main Street in historic downtown College Park and occupies an old gas station (hence the name;) It has a great patio and I was lucky that it was warm enough the other day to sit outside and catch some sun!


I order the same thing every time. Actually. The entire menu is delicious, but I just cannot seem to part with their Blackened Tilapia Salad. It’s topped with goat cheese, dried cranberries and candied pecans. That’s probably why haha. Just ask for no dressing and it’s gluten free! You won’t even miss it.


However I have heard particularly great things about the burgers, tacos and turkey pita club. It’s worth a try if you’re ever in the area or have a long layover!
