During a stop over at George Bush airport, Houston we visited Pappasito's Cantina for a bite to eat and wasn't left disappointed. the Burrito's are very big and very tasty, definitely one of the best airport eats i've had on my travels. The Del Roi Burrito was a personal favourite of mine which was definitely fully lodaed.

I've been here a few times. They are a little pricey for "mexican" food but the quality is good. Happy Hour margaritas and food are a good deal. Ambiance is decent and the place is roomy. I would go again :)

Breakfast options are a little limited at times, especially if you have an early flight, but the bacon, egg, and cheese tacos we had were great as well as the customer service. We will definitely stop in again on our next trip.

Ordered a great pitcher of margarita and had some good chips and salsa to go with it. The fajitas were tasty and the tortillas were warm, soft and fresh. Overall a great meal.

They are very consistent. Fajitas are good, margaritas are good. A good, solid, place. Quick and casual chain that is well above average.

So I regularly eat here when flying through IAH, but this time I had breakfast and I was not impressed with burrito. It had too much salsa which made it impossible to eat with my hands. The tortilla was soggy by the end. I will be back, just not for breakfast.

The Pappasito's Cantina in Terminal E is delicious, cheap, fast, and authentic tex-mex. What more could you ask for? I grew up in Texas, and now live in DC. Everytime I fly through IAH I run to terminal E to get a quick bite. Their breakfast options might be even more delicious than their lunch and dinner food, so don't... More

My family and I have been eating at Pappasito's Cantina's for years, ever since the 1980s when we lived in Houston, and few complaints. When we recently found we would be changing planes at Houston International we were excited to discover there is now a Cantina in the airport. Being an airport location we realized the food might not be... More
