Avalon Diner, Houston, TX

Avalon Diner Restaurant Review

: City power-brokers arrive early at Avalon Diner for breakfast meetings over the famous buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy or Western omelets. Families, some second-generation diners, flock here for a lunch of juicy burgers and hand-cut fries, the Big Salad in a bowl or the daily blue-plate specials. The soda fountain counter turns out shakes and ice cream floats as well as limeade made from fresh limes and served with a maraschino cherry. The portions are big, the prices are cheap and the waitresses --- some who have worked here for 20 years or more --- are friendly and sassy. Other locations.
