My favorite

Ideal for any occasion, it is the best restaurant for me in this area, for a fair price. The sea food and fish are awesome. Been there like twice a month for more than 2 years, never disappointed and menu always renewed.

I had always wanted to try Pappadeux because we don't have any that I know of in the Northeast. Being a slight foodie I was underwhelmed with my dish. Perhaps I need to try them again and have a 2nd opinion.

Every year I look forward to stopping for lunch, during our layover at Houston. Sometimes our layovers allow us to stop coming and going. My must have every time is the Lobster Bisque at $9.99 USD for a large bowl. My husbands favorite is the medium Fried Shrimp $17.99 USD I have tried several of the entrees. This time I... More

Never miss an opportunity to stop at Pappaduex when flying through the Houston airport. This is by far the best Cajun and seafood you will find anywhere. If You do not have time to enjoy it in the restaurant get it to go, everyone on the plane will be envious.

...we were very pleased with the selection and the dishes we ordered. My husband had the grilled smoked salmon appetizer with grilled French bread and it was delicious. I had the Greek salad - a very generous portion - with shrimp and it, too was delicate, flavorful and perfectly prepared medium rare. The prices were only slightly higher than the... More

Had lunch here while waiting for my flight. Seating is very packed. Difficult to find a place to place the carryon luggage. Service very pleasant and exceptionally efficient. I had the sea food platter. Scallops were over-cooked but the meal was pleasant nevertheless and cost was fair. Recommended for a quick meal with quality above the typical airport faire.

Great menu selection, excellence taste, excellent service. Servers had no problem taking orders and serving with a group of 15, food delivered to all of us with very little delay, very attentive. Little hard to find due to road construction (and it's Houston...LOL) Been there may times, will keep returning!

We all enjoyed our dinner here. I had the grilled tilapia with crabmeat and shrimp over spaghetti squash. Was light and very tasty. Service and good and prompt. Did have to wait a while since we went on a Friday night.

Good airport food is always difficult to find. Pappadeaux is the exception with very good food in a great setting. On the second floor of Terminal E, it is a haven for the hungry and the thirsty. A full selection of fish dishes from appetizers to soups to salads and entrees, their menu is sure to please anybody in your... More
