Whether it's Pappadeaux's or Pappasito's you'll never be disappointed. The food and service keep getting better! Huge portions, fresh ingredients, great service and fair prices. What else can I say except DON't miss it!

We are seafood fans, having grown up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and in New Orleans, and when we discovered Pappadeaux at IAH, were excited. We fly weekly, and since the UA and CO merger, find ourselves through IAH at least every two months. Pappadeaux is located in the E-Concourse at IAH, among the UA gates, so usually easy for... More

My visit was during lunch. We had six people in our party. We had to wait longer than expected to be seated. Our waitress was very slow in taking the drink order.

Whenever I'm in Houston or Atlanta we stop and eat at Pappadeaux's at least twice depending on how long we stay. It's usually our first and last stop before leaving the city's where they are located. The alligator, shrimp, catfish and dirty rice is some of the best out there. We have no complaints about the service that we receive... More

Stopped in after a day at the courthouse for Jury Duty. Had the Atlantic Salmon, great as it always is. If you like we'll seasoned, fresh seafood cooked to perfection everytime, this is the place to go.

My husband loves steak without any sauces, but he said his steak had no flavor. I had shrimp ettoufee and found it to be delicious. We both loved the warm crusty bread served with our meal. It was the closest to New Orleans French bread that I have had in a while.
