    Ruben is FABULOUS!! Ask to sit in his section. The watermelon lemonade tastes like a jolly rancher. Great eats and short wait times. Def a must try for all traveling through and love Southern food.

    The Seared Ahi and Crab is out of this world. The baked crab mac n cheese is well executed and just enough to share

    Situated above the terminal gates, you can easily forget you're at the airport. Full service bar and restaurant is a nice break away from the food court in Terminal E, if you have the time to spare.

    Treat your sweetie to Pappadeaux for Valentine's Day! Try their Crème Brulee - Luscious creamy baked vanilla bean custard topped with a thin layer of caramelized sugar, served with fresh fruit!

    Costa Rican mahi & lemon chile crab is awesome! It's spicy (I love spicy food) so, if you don't like spicy food, be careful.

    This place is great if you have some time to kill. Best restraurant in the airport. The staff is super friendly, food is great, and of course some cold drinks!

    Hannah, our waitress is wonderful. She understands service. Otherwise food is huge porportioned and very generous with salt. Especially the spinach crab dip and gumbo.

    By far some of the best food I've ever had in an airport. Hands down. Costa Rican Mahi was on point! It's spicy tho (I love spicy food)

    This is a real-live, full-on Pappa's restaurant. Food was good - way better than most airport gigs. I had the crawfish platter - good, but I'd do just the crawfish étouffée next time. God service too.

    Eat in the airport? Why yes! Grilled fish taco plate was a great alternative to fried Chinese slop in a styrofoam box. Worth the 10 min wait while they cooked toorder.

    Cobb salad is great and light! Excellent for an intercontinental flight. Ask for a médium size plate, is more than enough!

    There is a second bar on the far right side of the restaurant by the kitchen. Sometimes it's easier to find a seat here!

    Nice place to hang in Houston's international terminal, but the bar plays disco in a Louisiana concept bar/restaurant and drinks have waaaayyy too much ice and too little drink...

    Short wait, not too busy, I could see at least 8 empty tables. Took 35 minutes to get apps, 10 minutes after that we got our food, and one order was wrong. Two people, $60, pricey but delicious!

    Tell wait staff when your flight is, otherwise they'll take their time. Everything here is delish, but try the Fondue. ;)

    Go for the buffet! 9:00-300. $12 for a good variety of food. No need for seconds. But expect the hard sell from the staff on drinks and dessert.

    If you've never been to a Pappadeaux, you'll love it. If you have been, they've reduced the portions and increased the prices. Disappointing from what I'm used to them delivering.
