As you read the reviews of the Avalon diner, you’ll see reviews that are all over the map. Some like it a lot, some find it just average, some didn’t enjoy themselves.

Here’s the thing. They’re probably all telling you the truth. Whether you like the Avalon diner or not depends a lot on what you’re looking for.

The first thing to know about the Avalon diner is that this is not some foodie hideout. You’ll recognize every single item on the menu. This is not one of those restaurants where they pair greens with goat brains tartare and charge you $20 for the privilege. The Avalon has stuff like pancakes, a burger, some hash browns, or a milk shake. Comfort food largely.

I’m pretty sure their food isn’t locally sourced, or free range, or anything like that. If that sort of thing is important to you, the Heights or Montrose is your destination. Or, you know, San Francisco.

But lots of what they serve at Avalon really, really, really hits the spot. You choose the right thing and you get diner-grilled-goodness. My wife and I go a lot. We’re particular fans of their breakfast omelettes (which you can get any time of day). Paired with hash browns, and fresh-made biscuits, you’re in breakfast heaven.

It’s a friendly place too. You’ll occasionally see somebody in there with a tie, but mostly it’s jeans, sweatpants, and shorts. You can bring your kids or your Mom.

My wife and I go to the Avalon for breakfast at least once a week or so. I can’t say we’ve ever been for lunch or dinner so you’re on your own there. But if you’re looking for a decent American-style breakfast hot off the grill, the Avalon Diner is your place.

We visit often for family breakfast, the service is great and friendly. It gets crowded around 9:30-10AM on the weekends, but the wait is usually not bad. A lot of regulars visit here which I like to see. It's a great place for families.

Have only had breakfast there but the food's always good, service is always friendly and the menu offers lots of choices. Good-sized portions, too. Senior discounts are offered for those over (I believe) 60 but check the age to be sure.

One of the best greasy spoons around
What a great staff. Super friendly and accommodating
What can I say. Huge portions just like mom used to make
And if it's not on the menu the wait staff will do their best to get it made for you

Great little diner with 50"s decor but also has multiple TV'S. Can go casual and food is cross between old time dinner and truckers fare. My Gyro and fries were great and everyone enjoyed what the ordered. Didn't have desert but here the ice cream sundaes and milk shakes are really good. Good price and great food. Quiet atmosphere so you can converse without a problem. Waiter was very nice and very efficient. Will go again.
