This is a well established drive in with loyal local fans. We visited several times because of their reputation. Our lack luster experiences were consistent. We gave up. It was an "off" day on service, food quality, wait times, each time we went. Oddly enough, we saw "regulars" warmly greeted and quickly served. While, a small few of us were... More

If you're looking for a hamburger in town and don't want to go to a chain fast food restaurant, this is the place to go. Sometimes they are slow, however, it is always good.

It's nothing like you've ever seen before unless your over 50 like me. It's one of those places that refuses to bow to the trends of the day. Just good old drive-in style eating like it used to bein the seventies and before. It's worth the visit just to try something different. 😀

I'm not sure when the latest owners took over but they have kept all of the best from the menu and added a few other items. I love the Toro burger. It is a bigger burger for this place with a higher price, but it is worth it in my opinion. Service isn't fast. They cook to order. It can... More

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... More

Great tortilla burgers. Mouthwatering and fresh. They have outdoor tables but most people get theirs to go.

Tortilla burger is a "must try"! It is a classic burger stand, that has been an Alvin ,main street, icon for years! Recently renovated, and all meat and produce is locally purchased!

Place is a 50's style drive in. You order at window. There are a few picnic tables outside. Food is along the lines of Sonic: burgers, fries, dogs, but add tortilla burgers, shrimp baskets, and some other stuff. Quality is better than the typical fast food burger. Fries and rings are a lot better. I love the tortilla burger! Parking... More
