I have eaten at the Pappadaeux at the Houston and Dallas airports and have never been disappointed. They have a terrific Bloody Mary, decent wines, and terrific seafood. Love the seafood Cobb salad, seafood gumbo, and salmon. It's a wonderful spot to rest during a long layover, with free wifi.

We'd seen Pappadeaux 3 years ago when we were traveling through DFW airport and were tempted to try it but had the family in tow. This time with a 7 hour layover and just the two of us, we jumped in. A meal to remember! Fresh, bright tastes. Thoughtful presentation and warm service. Jessica is a standout employee. Desserts were... More

Nice cajun/mexican/gulf coast food. Don't miss it. Short Skylink ride from ANYWHERE in the airport. Just at exit for Skylink. Another escalator down. Pappasito's is on terminal level. Good but not as good as Pappadeaux's. Have never had a bad meal at either establishment, in any location. If you are on a bit of a time crunch just tell em.... More

It's worth going to terminal A even if your gate is in a different terminal. I always look forward to eating there. The food is always fresh and tastes amazing! The staff is so helpful and friendly. I was impressed even more on my last visit how much the hostess and server went out of their way to be so... More

This is a full service excellent restaurant. Don't let the location put you off. Our service was professional, courteous and timely. The Catfish was perfectly cooked and the dirty rice was amazing. My wife had the Crawfish Etoufee which was seasoned to perfection. Our drinks were a margarita and a hurricane and so nice. It's great to see that over... More

Sometimes you don't expect the same quality and service levels at airport based restaurants as their well established city locations...but not here. Our entrees and the service were on par with other Pappadeaux's we frequent. The baked cod with crab was excellent. So was the Sea Bass. Bravo! Love the decor too. Same great ambiance as other locations.

If you find yourself spending time in the DFW airport on a layover, head over to the A terminal and go to Pappadeaux. This restaurant sits one level lower than the main terminal. You can either take an escalator or elevator down to the restaurant. Once you're there, you are removed from the typical commotion of airports, and you can... More

First visit and loved it. Lunch time. This is not an inexpensive place, but the food and service are well worth it. Fast friendly service and lots of descriptions of the food if you want it. Oysters duo are a must. OMG are they good - a combination of crab meat, spinach hollandaise, parmesean Yum!! Then I had a medium... More

If you like seafood. If you like cajun. If you love a great meal. One word, Papadeaux. Have been to Houston and DFW locations. Same great food, service, and plenty to eat. Highly recommend this establishment.
