    Lots of great food options in this airport. All the Pappas Restaurants have a presence and all are fantastic just depends if you are in the mood for Mexican, Seafood, or Burgers. Barry's for pizza.

    One of my favorite airports! Southwest hub serving Houston. Security lines may be long but move very fast.

    Smaller airports are great. TSA folks are nice, and there are constant pages over the intercom to advise people of their lost items. It’s almost like they CARE here.

    I miss the days when Southwest had their three level security lines: Fast Track, Expert Traveler and Family/Need Extra Time. That was the most efficient TSA process ever!!!

    For the travelers from cities that can drink all day every Sunday: One must have food on the table before a drink can be ordered from 1030a-12p. 12p on is fair game...Or our waiter was a big liar

    Small Airports are the best... period! Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen offers free wi fi and Southwest proved to be excellent and on time!

    Go to the cell phone lot while you wait for your friends to arrive and enjoy the views of planes landing. Very close to the terminal, so you avoid the traffic at arrivals.

    Small airport with only one terminal. Went through security with ease. Plenty of shops. Ample seating with outlets for charging devices.

    I like this airport, nice and easy. Just make sure you collect your money from those who owe you before leaving town.

    Pappadeaux is a fun spot for a bite to eat offering classic New Orleans dishes like fried alligator, dirty rice, shrimp étouffée, and oysters. Sad beers on tap though, so be warned.

    If you're hungry go to the Asian Food place in the Food Court before the A Gates. The Szechuan Noodles are awesome - especially with the Phoenix Chicken. Really tasty hunan sauce on them - yum!

    A nicely renovated smaller airport with lots of direct flights on Southwest. No airport lounges as of 2019, but security is fast, so there’s usually no need to hang out at the airport for a long time.

    For convenience try parking in the brand new parking garage($20/day) at Hobby Airport. It is located on the left as soon as you get your parking ticket from the machine. Going to the terminal is easy.

    Happen to be passing through, be sure to swing by Pappas Burgers and say hello to Corey the bartender... Great personality and wonderful service.

    Pappasito’s Cantina can cobble together vegan food (side of black beans, pico, and tortillas). Otherwise, a veggie delite from Subway is your other option.

    Southwest got me back EARLY! The TSA was actually friendly & their body scanners are more generic pictures then other airports I've been in. Felt less violated & the friendliness went a long way!

    When picking up passengers with checked luggage, park red garage level 3 or 4, take the elevator to one and meet them. 10 minutes of parking is $1.00. 11 minutes to 60 minutes is $5.00.

    Agree with Jessica the rocking chairs are a nice Texan touch and the confined space in the pick-up area with idling cars gives the equally Texan polluted air experience

    It's an airport, what do you expect? Short lines at the TSA, it's comfortable, clean w/a nice food court. Take it from a real traveler, don't spend a lot of time in airports if you can avoid it!

    I love Hobby Air Port! My only complaint is it needs more restaurants choices and it definitely needs a Starbucks!

    Much nicer airport than IAH and since it is smaller there are much shorter lines! The shops and food selection is also better than IAH's.

    Get a frozen original margarita at Papasitos. One of the best frozens I've had in ages. They put it in a plastic cup, too.

    Grab a beer and walk around the concourse with it. There are some decent food places in this place as well.

    Only 51 gates and pretty much Southwest. Great option if you are headed to Galveston as you will save a ton of time

    Hobby finally has upgraded the terminals and better food places have been added! If you're running late Subway has been added and is serving breakfast (at normal prices too)!

    Pappasito,s cantina is the best! I love having a local Houston restaurant in the airport. If you crave tex mex this is the place to go!

    When picking someone up keep left as you approach the covered portion. That line moves faster since people on the right are usually stopped to load.

    I'm amazed at the lemmings who will go through the full body scanners here. Everyone should opt out.

    Hobby has an array of restaurants in the central concourse including Pappasito's Catina, Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, and Hunan Return of the Phoenix.

    Eco park 2 is the best place to park. Only $8 a day and it is right next to the terminal door.

    Best chairs in Gate 43 of any airport I've been in outside of the Preferred Lounges. "Leather" sitting chairs with Power outlets and USB ports every 2 chairs.

    Long flight? Peanuts are okay, but bringing a filling, healthy snack like almonds or fruit will keep you tied over until your destination. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!
