Don't try to get dinner at this popular diner. The breakfast- and lunchtime-only spot closes at 4 pm.
Great reputation but food quality and service is lacking – My wife and I ate here based on the reviews here and elsewhere. I ordered a 1/3 lb. cheeseburger with fries. The fries were great but the burger nowhere near a third of a pound and seemed to be the generic frozen mass-manufactured patties that are served by sub-mediocre burger joints everywhere. The service both at our table and at the register was also very poor. I suspect that Avalon made a name for themselves in another era and has been sold to new owners somewhere along the way. Perhaps the breakfast is better but I will not return for lunch.
Best breakfast I've ever had! – I can't believe I've lived here for over 20 years and I've never been to the Avalon before this. I had one of the specialty breakfasts that was a egg cheese ham tomato green pepper hash brown concoction that was absolutely delicious! and I don't usually eat green peppers, but the flavors just blended so nicely. The portions are more than generous, the waitresses were great, it is a good people watching place and it was fun to watch the regulars who all knew each other. The Avalon is a very comfortable layed back ole' timey place with great food, I can't wait to go back!
Best Diner! – Breakfast at Avalon is the best! The eggs, bacon, pancakes and grits are all awesome. It gets crowded on Sunday mornings, so be prepared to wait in line for a table. The waitresses have attitude and flair, so if you're a grumpy morning person, you might want to wait until lunch time....then grab a burger and a milkshake!
The BEST Diner in Houston – The Avalon Diner has been the standard for over 40 years!
Gret breakfast, awesome Burgers & shakes!
I have been coming here since 1979 and it keeps getting better & better!
Just a damn good diner - – Grumpy servers, piping hot coffee, good omelettes, nice crowd mix - This place is perfect!
hard to beat the omlettes, hash browns (ask for extra crispy- or else they are too mushy) and bacon with plenty of piping hot coffee. Always the same- always good. great service- reasonable prices. I eat there about once a week.
Great Grease – amazing greasy food, but the service leaves alot to be desired
Old waitress rock – The Avalon is a Houston institution. Their waitresses are the ones that make the place what it is.
I just Love this place! – Not only is the food great but the service is great! Lunch is awesome!! The hamburgers is juicy and to die for!!
