Pappas Bar-B-Q at IAH Terminal E
Connecting through Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston this week, I was delighted to find Pappas Bar-B-Q in Terminal E. I've had better barbecue elsewhere in Houston, but living in the San Francisco Bay area, even airport barbecue outshines anything we have locally. I had a sliced beef sandwich going out for lunch, and a sliced beef / link sausage platter with beans and potato salad for dinner on the return flight. It all was very tasty. As usual when I'm in Texas, I pretty much skipped the sauce; the little bit I sampled on the side at lunch confirmed that decision.
It looked like there were several other nice eating options in IAH, but barbecue was the clear regional choice for me. I really like this trend of US airports getting branches of local places into their food offerings!
