Flew through Hobby yesterday and had a Frito Pie burger @ Papas in the Southwest concourse. Man was that a good burger.... Fritos, chili and onions!!!!! Also, the fries were fresh and hot. This was an outstanding airport meal. If you want a burger on the fly, this is a a great place. Food is good, service in quick and... More

I wanted to try Pappas Steakhouse next door, but it was closed on a Sunday night, so I took a chance and went next door to Pappas Burgers. The burger menu looked interesting, but the fried shrimp was just 2 bucks more, so I opted for that. The waiter was extremely helpful, the shrimp and cocktail sauce (made there) scrumptious... More

Found this restaurant during a 2 hour flight delay and ordered a blue cheese burger and fries to go. Much to my surprise, it was big, juicy and absolutely delicious. To top it off, Pappas has various kiosks at Hobby Airport selling icy sodas and beer. What a treat.

Had breakfast there during a long stopover a couple days ago. Food is standard fare...meat, eggs, pancakes, french toast, hash browns, etc. but it's the service that we received from all the staff which stood out during our visit. Our server, Gena, was phenomenal. She was friendly and prompt with checking up on us, refills, and plate removal. Two other... More

Flew out of Hobby airport to get home and decided to stop at Pappas Burger for a quick pre-flight snack. I never expected the burger to be so good, it was amazing. The burger patty is hand formed and well seasoned. The bun and condiments are very fresh. The service was great and the serving size is even better. I... More

I never write reviews about airport restaurants because, well, the places are at the airports and the expectation is mediocre food at best. Pappas Burgers at Houston's Hobby Airport is the exception. While waiting for our connecting flight, we stopped at Pappas for lunch. I had the Pappas' cheeseburger and my friend had the turkey burger. Both burgers were excellent,... More

There are very few restaurants me and my wife would consider definitely going back to. This would be one of them. We ordered the ribs, buffalo chicken bites, and the shake. All of them, especially the buffalo chicken bites were superb. Best part though was the service!!! Very warm and friendly, personifies what "makes you feel at home" really means.
