Update 10/10/18: Campanile at LAX has temporarily suspended its Priority Pass participation, so a credit is not currently available there.

In addition to well over 1,000 traditional airport lounges around the world, Priority Pass now partners with restaurants to offer members free food and drinks at a handful of terminals around the US, plus a few international locations as well.

This week, Priority Pass is adding three more locations, including two at Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and one more in Los Angeles (LAX).

Members and each of their guests get $28 to spend on food and drinks at each restaurant. You'll need to hand over your Priority Pass card before you order, and gratuity is not included, nor is any amount spent beyond the sum total of $28 per person. Always be sure to tip on the full amount, before any Priority Pass discounts.

These restaurants should be added to the program sometime this week:

Houston: Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar (Terminal A)

This sizable Mexican spot is located near Gate A17 at IAH, not far from American, Delta and a handful of international airline departures. Breakfast entrees are priced under $10, while lunch and dinner shouldn't cost more than $20, leaving a bit left over to offset the cost of a margarita or beer. There's also a robust tequila menu, should you be more interested in a drink.

Houston: Landry's Seafood (Terminal C)

Located smack dab in United country, near C42 at Houston's Terminal C, Landry's Seafood focuses on heavier dishes, including steaks, seafood and pasta. Soups and salads are available for about $10, while you'll spend up to $16 for a sandwich or between $20 and $30 for a fresh fish entree. Beer, wine and cocktails are available as well, so you should have no problem eating up your $28 credit here.

Los Angeles: Campanile (Terminal 4)

Located near the American Airlines gates at LAX's Terminal 4, and a short walk from the Tom Bradley International Terminal, Campanile offers a mix of breakfast and lunch/dinner items. Breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, granola and other items are all priced under $15, so you should be able to cover your entire meal with the $28 credit. Sandwiches, meanwhile, are priced under $17, while entrees can cost up to $35 — you might want to consider sharing some appetizers and an entree if you're visiting with a guest.
