Great gastro style craft beer tavern in Alvin, Texas, south of Houston. One of the coolest bars/restaurants in the area.
We been to the Gordon Street Tavern, on several occasions previously, over a year ago and it was good. I ordered a Margarita and it was nasty! I had the waitress return it. My wife ordered a hamburger which was ok. I had the fish and chips and if I had not been hungry I would have not ate some of it. Will definitely not return

This one is in Kroger, they are always friendly! It is really busy at times but worth the wait...Only thing is they never have the cake pops...

With a business like this its all about the ownership. This little donut shop has a great owner.
He makes sure the service is friendly, the donuts are fresh with a lot of great choices and they have some unique touches.
If you like coffee this is the place to come in Alvin. Don't waste your time or money at Starbucks. They spent a lot of money on a top of the line coffee brewing system here and the taste proves it. The prices are also much better than Starbucks.
The donuts are excellent as are the kolaches. This fall they have added a pumpkin cake donut that is so good.
Shipley's on Fairway runs a close second, but for now Daylight is the place to get your sweet breakfast and coffee.

We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was busy. We waited awhile for drinks, our appetizer didn't show up. Our meals arrived and I asked the waitress at that point to take the onion ring appetizer off the bill. We were then informed "they are hand breaded and take awhile to make". Hmmmm it takes longer to fry onion rings than to fry hand cut french fries, breaded shrimp, fish and also whip up an omelette? Just admit that you forgot to put the order in and apologize. Not a big deal but if you LIE to me about my food then I don't trust you to be my waitress. Anyway, the waitress never did take them off of the bill and we were stuck with the appetizer coming out when we were almost finished with the meal. It takes 40 minutes to make onion rings? I brought them home and threw them in the garbage because they weren't any good cold. Soggy gross mess for $5.99. What a waste of money! I didn't need to be lied to!

Love these kolaches, way better than shipley's. The bread is so good, fluffy & delicious. I like the jumbo & the regular sausage & cheese. My wife is addicted to the ham & cheese. The donuts & the BEARCLAWS are awesome as well. Very reasonable prices. I go here at least twice a month.

I have been in Texas working Hurricane Harvey damage. A local told me to try out Joe's. I went there on Tues, the shrimp night special, and it was fantastic. I've eaten there 3x since and everything I've had was delicious. Prices are very reasonable with large portions. A real local favorite and I recommend anyone around to go try it out.

Many menu choices. We enjoyed the thin crispy chips with two delicious salsas, one green and one a smokey tomato slasa.
Courteous waiters and qujck service. The beef fajita enchilada was excellent.Puffy taco was tough but everything else was very good.
Specials each weekday evening.
Glad we found it! Walking distance from La Quinta and Holiday Inn in Alvin.

I spent two nights in Alvin recently and at at Diana's Grill for breakfast twice. The food and service is very good. The Breakfast Tacos were some of the best I have ever had; fresh, tasty, and the perfectly-sized proportion.
On one order I had the hash browns and they were very good, on the second order I had the roasted potatoes, and that is the only ding I have for this place. They were those frozen, square, hollow potatoes that many restaurants are using for their roasted or home-style potatoes.
Give this place a try and avoid the roasted potatoes.

A group of 8 of us went there after a morning at Frobergs. We didn't get there until a little after 1:30pm and there were only 3 orders ahead of us. It took 37minutes to get our food! I'm not sure if that's the norm but it was extremely frustrating with small children in tow.
I had this famous tortilla burger and it was the worst burger I have ever had. Two hard shells with flavorless burger fixings falling out as the shells cracked. I'm shocked this is so popular. Everything else was good, especially the Texas Tots.

We decided to give Caboose BBQ a try on a Saturday afternoon. My husband ordered the two meat plate with brisket and ribs with a side of macaroni and baked beans. The brisket had great flavor but was a little dry and the ribs were the perfect texture but we did not care for the flavor. Beans and mac and cheese were both average. I got the grilled cheese with brisket sandwich with a side of green beans. Hands down probably the best green beans I have had but the brisket grilled cheese was just okay , nothing spectacular. A friend where with got a barbecue baked potato with chopped beef and said it was just ok and needed more cheese and sour cream. The kids with us got a kids chicken finger and the other one got mini corn dogs and tots. At first they told us they did not have chicken fingers then came back and said they did and then came back as we sat down and said they didn't so there is some miscommunication between the front and the kitchen workers. The tater tots were really good for being tater tots and mini corn dogs were typical mini corn dogs.
Overall we might go back but some improvement needs to be made.
