Returning from travels always means Pappasitos for me! If I am landing at IAH and then flying home- it's Pappasitos in the Terminal B food court. Yes, it's a smaller Pappasito's menu and it's not a restaurant like the Pappadeaux, but I always crave chips...More

Ok, the place is not known for breakfast... But if u sell breakfast, make it good. The breakfast burrito tasted like a pile of greasy tatertots, weak salsa, refried beans, and a soggy tortilla. Just not worth it.

We love the papasitos in San Antonio and we were looking forward to eating here bit the eggs were powdered eggs and the tortillas were disgusting. Very over priced.

Good place to stop off. Hopefully IAH will keep some of these restaurants and not go ipad table mad like they have done in terminal C or Newark. Good place

We went there to get nachos. They were soft and loads of bean sauce were all over them. It was simply so bad and almost not to eat. Also huge portions calling for food waste in any case. Will not eat there again

There are many choices in the food court area. We needed something that will not leak or smell that we can take in the plane. Another stop at the airport, we needed to fill the belly before boarding the flight. They do not feed you...More
