This was a great stop. Hadn't been to Pappadeaux in years. Had time to kill at the dinner hour in Hobby Airport before catching a flight home. Was seated immediately and drinks in front of us right away. I had the crawfish combo plate with crawfish étouffée, fried crawfish and dirty rice. It was authentic and fantastic. My coworker ordered... More

This is a review of the Pappadeaux on Avenida, by the convention Center downtown. Went there for dinner and was excited to try some southern cooking. The restaurant itself was attractive inside, wait staff friendly and helpful. Noisy but that is what I expected... The food was not good. I tried the gumbo...etouffee, etc. This is a chain, of course,... More

Three hour layover and great reviews from family and friends this restaurant was a must try! It did not disappoint! It was incredible! The service from our waiter Antonio and the Grand Bay platter with the crab cake, shrimp and scallops was a taste of heaven in my mouth! I got the butternut squash risotto instead of the green beans... More

Had a 2 hour delay so I decided to spend it in Papapdeaux , the menu is downsized from the traditional menu. I ordered the chicken pita and fries which was good. Great place to hang if delayed.

We had a long wait in Houston airport so decided to try this restaurant, not expecting too much. We were pleasantly surprised as we were greated and immediately shown to a table with lots of room for our carry on luggage. A lobster and shrimp salad came to me in good time, after my order. It was scrumptious and large... More

I ate at this Pappadeaux during my Houston layover. The staff is very conscious of getting people in and out before their flight's boarding time - they note it on the server's sheet, which I think is really good. My waiter, Josey (Josefina R) obviously takes her job very seriously. She was very pleasant and patiently answered every question I... More

If you have ever eaten at a Pappadeaux Houston or Atlanta then eat here because it is just as good as a non-airport food, and that is saying something! Even the waitresses was better than most non airport restaurants. Albeit the prices as usual are higher than regualr I am happy for the choice! My wife had the Shrimp PoorBoy... More

Have dined on several occasions at both the DFW and IAH restaurant locations. Pappadeaux delivers incomparable dishes in a very short amount of time. This well-oiled operation means that travelers can enjoy superior fare and still make their connecting flight! The staff are extremely courteous and well trained, they make it their personal mission to ensure a smooth and tasty... More

I was at Houston airport during a stopover of transcontinental flight. I am picky when it comes to seafood and did not want to risk myself too much. I ordered a Salmon burger, which is decently priced and has your typical salmon filet and you can quickly check whether they get seafood. I especially asked for the burger to be... More
