    Lots of great food options in this airport. All the Pappas Restaurants have a presence and all are fantastic just depends if you are in the mood for Mexican, Seafood, or Burgers. Barry's for pizza.

    For the travelers from cities that can drink all day every Sunday: One must have food on the table before a drink can be ordered from 1030a-12p. 12p on is fair game...Or our waiter was a big liar

    Pappadeaux is a fun spot for a bite to eat offering classic New Orleans dishes like fried alligator, dirty rice, shrimp étouffée, and oysters. Sad beers on tap though, so be warned.

    If you're hungry go to the Asian Food place in the Food Court before the A Gates. The Szechuan Noodles are awesome - especially with the Phoenix Chicken. Really tasty hunan sauce on them - yum!

    Go to the cell phone lot while you wait for your friends to arrive and enjoy the views of planes landing. Very close to the terminal, so you avoid the traffic at arrivals.

    I miss the days when Southwest had their three level security lines: Fast Track, Expert Traveler and Family/Need Extra Time. That was the most efficient TSA process ever!!!

    For convenience try parking in the brand new parking garage($20/day) at Hobby Airport. It is located on the left as soon as you get your parking ticket from the machine. Going to the terminal is easy.

    Southwest got me back EARLY! The TSA was actually friendly & their body scanners are more generic pictures then other airports I've been in. Felt less violated & the friendliness went a long way!

    I really like this airport. Small & very easy to get around. Friendly airport. Good airport if you ever need to make a connection to get to your destination.

    Agree with Jessica the rocking chairs are a nice Texan touch and the confined space in the pick-up area with idling cars gives the equally Texan polluted air experience

    Happen to be passing through, be sure to swing by Pappas Burgers and say hello to Corey the bartender... Great personality and wonderful service.

    Pappasito,s cantina is the best! I love having a local Houston restaurant in the airport. If you crave tex mex this is the place to go!

    Best chairs in Gate 43 of any airport I've been in outside of the Preferred Lounges. "Leather" sitting chairs with Power outlets and USB ports every 2 chairs.

    Keeping liquids in checked baggage is always your best bet, but if you aren’t checking luggage, predetermine how much liquid security allows and plan ahead to avoid losing your favorite shampoo!

    Hobby finally has upgraded the terminals and better food places have been added! If you're running late Subway has been added and is serving breakfast (at normal prices too)!

    Welcome to Houston, home of the 2011 AFC South champion Houston Texans. Stop by the Go Texan Store at Reliant Stadium for the largest collection of team gear.

    Get a frozen original margarita at Papasitos. One of the best frozens I've had in ages. They put it in a plastic cup, too.
  • CultureMap Houston M.
    Hobby has an array of restaurants in the central concourse including Pappasito's Catina, Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, and Hunan Return of the Phoenix.

    Long flight? Peanuts are okay, but bringing a filling, healthy snack like almonds or fruit will keep you tied over until your destination. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!

    Much nicer airport than IAH and since it is smaller there are much shorter lines! The shops and food selection is also better than IAH's.

    Pappadeaux is new here and was a nice Houston touch to the airport! Also love the changes to the shopping at the airport as well!!

    It's an airport, what do you expect? Short lines at the TSA, it's comfortable, clean w/a nice food court. Take it from a real traveler, don't spend a lot of time in airports if you can avoid it!

    When picking someone up keep left as you approach the covered portion. That line moves faster since people on the right are usually stopped to load.

    I love Hobby Air Port! My only complaint is it needs more restaurants choices and it definitely needs a Starbucks!

    If it's too busy at top ramp have your party drop you off at bottom baggage claim. A short walk and an escalator could save half an hour.

    Grab a beer and walk around the concourse with it. There are some decent food places in this place as well.

    As airports go Hobby is a breeze. It's small and friendly with decent food options and mercifully short security lines!

    Only 51 gates and pretty much Southwest. Great option if you are headed to Galveston as you will save a ton of time

    Fried alligator appetizer at Pappadeux: not to shabby! It's sit down so be sure you have some time. They keep tabs on time for you, as some airport restaurants do

    Free refills on your black/green iced tea at Peet's. Next to gate #40. Makes the price a little easier to handle. Tasty too.

    After you pass thru TSA, look up at the original neon sign that was once the exterior of the airport. Love that they maintain the history!

    Park on the top level of the garage. There's plenty of wider spaces & less chance of getting your vehicle dinged

    You can take adult beverages anywhere in the terminal, glass bottles excluded. Don't feel obligated to keep drinks in bars/restaurants.

    Eco park 2 is the best place to park. Only $8 a day and it is right next to the terminal door.

    Be sure to check your boarding pass. If it says TSA PRE you can skip the long security lines. Go start thru security without taking shoes off and the line is really short.

    Take advantage of the Priority line (if you have it w/ an airline). It's not on the sign, but Delta's Silver Medallion counts & got me through security in 10 minutes

    I'm amazed at the lemmings who will go through the full body scanners here. Everyone should opt out.

    Hobby is not like Austin Bergstrom. To check bags in to Southwest Airlines you need to do it before 45mins of departure. In Austin it is 30mins. Otherwise your bag will be marked "Late Checkin".

    Security line gets busy for those Sunday 5-730 flights, so keep that in mind when planning your day
