Took my girl to lunch here for her birthday and boy were we surprised. The burgers were amazing! I would give 5 stars except my favorite drink (Grateful Dead) was made wrong. We'll definitely be back though.

This place has good food, everything is prepared nicely and tastes great. I've eaten here dozens of times and still go every week. It's a great vibe with its unique setting around an old car repair shop. Give it a try!

This was my first visit but my friends are regulars here and love to come when they can eat outside. We had the fries covered in cheese, scallions, jalapeños and so much bacon--- very good! The burgers are tasty 1/2 pounders and are loaded with rich toppings. I had the CP burger which has bacon, grilled onions and pimento cheese.... More

We stopped into Brake Pad for a post-flight meal. Industrial atmosphere and automotive decor. Restrooms were clean - always a plus! The indoor/outdoor setting is complete with garage doors that open up. Service was quick, burgers were moist, cooked exactly as requested and tater tots hit the spot. The clientele ranged from business meetings to early dinner and drinks with... More

Stopped in for dinner on a Sunday evening. The hamburgers tasted like typical "frozen patty" style burgers. Lots of cheese available for the fries if that's your thing. The hummus was bland, and didn't taste like chick-peas, not sure what they used. The only thing remarkable on the plate was the pita bread. Olive tapenade was more like a bunch... More

Lunch on way to airport. Fun design and atmosphere. Food was good, service as well. Had patty melt and fries and chicken sandwich and fries both were good, done just right.

It's an old mechanics shop - there's outside dining and inside no AC and inside with AC. Plenty of parking off street. the bar is neat and the burgers are the best - so enjoy a draft Stella, coke and relaxing informal meal - i like it!

Brake pad was suggested by our shuttle bus driver from the airport and we were not disappointed. This is a sister restaurant to The Universal Joint in Clayton, Ga, which is our favorite place. We had been traveling all day and were hungry. Everything we ordered was very good and our waiter was awesome.

the burgers were just ho hum. No salads or alternative for a healthy veggie. I had my hopes for a big salad but all they offered was iceberg. Really? If you like a cold pitcher of beer and appetizers. You will be happy.

Too many places won't let you have hamburgers cooked your way. Not so here. You want your hamburger rare to medium rare? You got it! And $3 16 ounce Tecates on Wednesday special. Can you ask for anything more? The Cuban sandwich is the best I have had north of Havana!
