I have been to pappadeaux in Arizona and it is a wonderful experience. I had a 3 hour layover in Dallas and spied the Pappadeaux's here in the airport. What a treat!! A 'real' restaurant away from the craziness of the terminal. Food is excellent. I had the gumbo and a seafood platter. Definitely the place to go if you... More

Located below departure Terminal A Gate 24 with wood paneling and comfortable leather seating it is nothing like being in an airport. Full bar, varied menu of... More

We have been here many times during layovers. Consistently good food. Love the gumbo although our stomachs seem to disagree : ( So sad.

On a recent trip through DFX I had a long layover and I decided to eat at Pappadeux. I had eaten at Pappadeux in Houston and was hoping the experience would be just as good. To my surprise I had an outstanding experience. I had the Sea Bass and my favorite Left Hand Milk Stout. The Sea Bass was fantastic.... More

Located inside the airport inside security, this was quite a find for us. The service was excellent and the food was just what we needed. I highly reccomend the filet. Literally cut it with a butter knife. Will return whenever we're in DFW

Had to stop on my way to the airport, I was craving seafood. To my surprise I ordered the best gumbo in a long time, lots of shrimp and flavor. I ended up ordering the catfish with ponchartrain sauce, and it is to die for - with dirty rice.

On a layover at DFW, which i have done many times but had no clue that Pappadeaux's had a restaurant there. Located on the lower level in almost a secret location lies this amazing restaurant. I have eaten many times in the city of Dallas at several locations. This was, like the others a great meal. I did not have... More

I had a quick bite at Pappadeaux in Terminal A of DFW. It keeps the standard of want you expect at Pappadeaux at other locations. The service is quick and efficient, which is important for Business travelers. If you are a seafood lover like me, you wouldn't be dissapointed.
