Enough time to go through immigration ESTA, customs possibly another terminal?
I have a 9.5 hour layover starting at 930pm in Houston from Costa Rica. Is there somewhere close I can sleep in that amount of time? Are there restaurants open 24hrs? TIA
I have a few hours in IAH. Are there any restaurants before you go through security to meet a local in the airport who does not have a ticket ?
My wife and I have a 10hr layover but don't want to leave the airport (too much luggage). Options re shower, meals etc.
What airlines are you flying? The airport has lots of restaurants inside security if you are already checked in.

Flying from RTB on United to IAH, then need to switch to Air Canada to fly to Calgary. Will 3 and a half hours be long enough to do this? Do I need to go through security/customs before getting on Air Canada?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.
I am flying from LGA airport in NYC to Santa Ana, California with a 50 minute layover in Houston airport in March. Is this enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
If my first flight is delayed, does united put you on the next available flight? is there a charge for that if it does happen?
