To pick up your rental car at Seattle-Tacoma International, you definitely need to know about the new facility!

All the service counters for the car rental companies at the airport have been moved to a new rental car facility.

Here are VroomVroomVroom's recommendations for excellent food near the airport

If you are a tired, hungry, thirsty traveler who just reached Seattle-Tacoma Airport, or if you need to kill some time before your flight leaves, here are a few of the very best places to eat that are located near the airport!

The best local eatery is probably Copperleaf Restaurant at Cedarbrook Lodge, which you can find in your rental car by driving to 18525 36th Avenue South in SeaTac. This is the perfect place to have some great American food, and a lot of the menu items are locally grown so the taste is fresh and scrumptious! Please be aware that Copperleaf isn't cheap – you can easily spend $50 or more per person, depending on your tastes! But it's so good, give it a try if you want an exceptional meal!

If you'd prefer some Italian cuisine, check out Grazie Ristorante, at 16943 Southcenter Parkway in Tukwila. A little more than 4 miles East of the airport, it's a great place to sit down for some excellent, well-prepared Italian food.

We should also mention that Copperleaf and Grazie both take reservations online! So use your iPhone or laptop and make sure a table's waiting on you, when you arrive in your awesome rental car.

If you are in a hurry, feel like you are starving, or just don't want to stray far from the airport, Anthony's Sea-Tac Airport is right next to the airport at 17801 International Boulevard in SeaTac. Another great American restaurant, it's staffed by friendly people and is a favorite of the local neighborhood residents. So hop into your rental car and then head straight to Anthony's! You won't be disappointed!

Other must-try restaurants in Sea-Tac Airport  and in the surrounding area are the Africa Lounge, Beecher's, Bigfoot Food and Spirits. Dish D'Lish, Dungeness Bay Seafood House, Ivar's Fish Bar, Seahawks 12 Club,  Vino Volo, 13 Coins and Salty's at Redondo Beach.
