Good restaurants near IAH airport? Not IN, but around

Can anyone help out here? Sorry if this is not the section to post this in. I figure I would ask United junkies since IAH is a hub.

The appropriate forum to ask this non-UA specific question is the Texas (Travel) Forum; I'll move this there.

I will add that my very limited experience is that the area surrounding IAH is not particularly nice.

Thanks,

The area around the airport is a culinary dead zone. Most top-rated restaurants are inside the Loop 610. That being said, there is a good French restaurant is Humble (prounounced "umble"):

Outside of that, you're looking at mostly chain restaurants in Humble (US59 at FM1960 area, or in the Greenspoint ("Gunspoint") area. Top choices for chain restaurants in either location would be Pappas Seafood and Pappasitos (Tex-Mex). Both concepts are run by the same people that run the Pappadeux's at Terminal E - decent food at decent prices. Humble would be a slightly cheaper cab ride.

Also in Greenpoint is Jimmy G's Cajun. Don't see the point in going there w/ Pappadeaux's at airport:

Bon Appetit!

Back when I used to fly from IAH from work I would ofter eat at couple of places around I-45 and FM 1960.

There were Vietnamese and Mexican restaurants that served rather decent food.

Sorry, can't recall the names right now, and Google is banned here in China where I'm posting from at the moment.

Chez Nous definitely fits the bill.
