I don't really have any favorite airports. They pretty much all suck. DFW (my local one) would be horrible if you were transiting through. There are 5 different terminals connected by a train system. Now, the current train system is better than the old one, but you are still often traveling between terminals if you have to change planes in Dallas. 4 of the 5 terminals are pretty bad (although the AA Admirals Clubs are pretty nice...given that it's AA's home base, they should be). The newest terminal is the International terminal ("D"). It's very nice. Very open and inviting. Lots of decent places to eat or get a drink. As a resident it isn't bad, you just figure out which terminal you're leaving from and drive straight there. BUT (and this is a big BUT) coming home can be bad. The nice train system is inside security, so if you check luggage and your return flight doesn't come back to the same terminal you left from you have to schlepp your bags down to a bus stop and wait for a bus to take you to the terminal where your car is parked. Major pain.
