  1. Wow, these reply links are sending me to my own profile a lot. Anyway, here's a recent thread that might inform at least as to Tex-Mex...

    1. Unfortunately, near the airport (assuming IAH), you are stuck with the usual chains, and smaller neighborhood Mexican places. A couple of exceptions are upscale, but it seems like that's not what your after with your son. The link Lambowner sent is a good, recent reference.

      1. My brother was back in our hometown of Houston a while back and was craving Gulf Coast seafood near IAH. We went to Jimmy G's and he was more than satisfied, not something available in the midwest.
