    If you have a long layover between flights, Head over to E-5 in United's beautiful international terminal. The view is outstanding. You can watch aircraft depart three different runways from this here

    Pedestrian travelers beware the fleet of high-speed transport vehicles barreling haphazardly through the terminal. "To your left! To the right! In the middle!" It's like a game of Frogger out there.

    If you are arriving on an international flight be sure you plan plenty of time if you are connecting in Houston. Long lines in immigration and customs take a very long time to process through.

    It's a big airport with free wifi! Terminal E has the best food spots like CatCora's, Cinnabon, sushi place, Pappasito's cantina and many others! It also has nice stores and a large seating area

    It’s big. Lots of food and shopping options. I’m traveling with my elderly mom and they did a terrific job getting us from the curb to the gate.

    Dedicated ESTA terminals at immigration, which means that those eligible could get through immigration within 10 minutes (I did). Also, United/ANA check baggage through for international transit!

    Arrived at 9:30pm and all restaurants and food cafes were shutting down. There was only one food stand in terminal B with wraps and a McDonalds. Of course our choice was to get the wraps!

    If it's your first time driving in there to drop/pick-up, lay out your strategic battle plan beforehand, or risk being forever lost in this concrete Charlie Foxtrot of roads and sudden passageways.

    If you're in Terminal A get a shoeshine from Clifford. He will deliver one of the best shoeshines you'll ever get, but an even better conversation. Don't forget the tip.

    Big airport with lots of food and shopping options. It’s one of the main hubs for United. One may take a while changing terminals!

    Ive been to a LOT of airports, and this one has far and away the friendliest (while still thorough) TSA/security staff ever. I mean I made like 7 friends on my way through Customs kind of friendly.

    If you want a quiet space to work or just get away from the throngs of people, the D Concourse seems to be ideal. Especially D1

    Be sure to allow enough time to actually make your connection. Also wear comfortable shoes because you are still gonna have to run.

    It's like a long International boarding process regardless for every size aircraft or destination. I can swear I think United must had hired Southwest to implement their cattle call experience...LOL

    The Real Food Company in Terminal C is some of the best Airport food we've ever had! Lots of fresh, hot selections. Try the Monte Cristo grilled sandwich!

    Good chinese food near the boarding gate in terminal 1. The staff is super friendly, I felt just a little dizzy and they called the doctor of the airport to come see me 😦

    Compared to others, it doesn't have enough signs to keep you on track. For instance, when you disembark the plane, & you're looking for baggage claim, there's no sign to help you turn left or right

    Newly renovated terminals offer a great restaurant selection and plenty of seating. Shopping is a bit sparse but has enough nicknack stores to please.

    Delta Airlines has some of the most churlish staff there is. This one in particular has no clue how to talk to customers. It's unreal.

    Flew United and was a big fan of all the food and beverage options in Terminal 3. There's a great little sushi spot in the older part of the Terminal near the C Gates.

    Put on your walking shoes! There are sky trains that will get you from terminal to terminal that is inside security. There’s also a Disney tram in the basement that is outside of security.

    Typical state airport "the big is beautiful", good but not as artistic as other airport in asia or midlle east. Far from city center & not many option to use public transport #TravelingUS #Texas

    If you're waiting for your flight around the C-43ish gate area, you NEED to go to UpperCrest. They have the BEST fresh baguette sandwiches. No lie. Seriously wish they had one where I lived!

    If you're connecting from abroad and have Pre-check/Global Entry, skip the security lines by exiting to the left of the connecting bag area and taking the elevator up to the precheck line.

    Relax @ le grand comptoir: my husband thinks the food is ropey & the wine is pedestrian, but I think the atmosphere & wine are lovely! Have a glass of sparkling to feel like royalty before you fly!

    Good airport, friendly staff. United lounge by gate C is great. From the UK watch out if you need to take money out as the ATMs aren't compatible with UK chip and pin cards.

    Between Terminal C & E there is a food court. In the back, you'll find Pappasitos where you can get AWESOME breakfast and fajitas later in the day. Highly recommend--real local Tex-Mex.

    This airport has nice shops and restaurants inside, two priority pass lounges, and it's quick to transfer to other terminals with the sky train. It's solid!
