LOCAL RESTAURANTS YOU’VE HEARD OF MAKE IT TO THE IAH RUNWAY The Breakfast Klub, Hubcap Grill, El Real Tex-Mex Café, Ray’s Real Pit BBQ Shack, Hugo’s Cocina, Pink’s Pizza, Cadillac Mexican Kitchen and Bar, Café Adobe, and Landry’s Seafood — where might you be able to go to sample them all? Anywhere — as long as your travel takes you through Bush Intercontinental Airport. Amid a bunch of protests from other bidders who lost out, a vote from city council last month approved $1.6 billion worth of airport concession contracts that will land the group of local restaurants and locally based chains a 10-year deal.

Sounds great! … until someone brings their Hangover or Frito Pie burger onto the plane.
Maybe the rude as hell customer service at hubcap won’t seem so bad in comparison to a full cavity TSA search. Have fun taking a dump on the plane toilet or the urine drenched airport bathroom after eating that greasy garbage.
@Houstonian sometimes its poor customer service, but other times it just might be you…
@texmex pretty sure the problem is hubcap. There are a lot of great burger places in Houston that would be a better last impression of Houston to travelers leaving town than hubcap. In a city know for world class hospitality, the rude ambivalence of hubcap will be the last Houston experience for thousands of travelers leaving our city every year.
