Avalon Diner cooks up all-day breakfasts and third-pound burgers in addition to blending shakes, floats, and sundaes. Served all day, omelets hide an array of fillings within their golden folds, and stacks of pancakes come with toppings such as pecans, blueberries, bananas, and strawberries. Nightly blue-plate specials rotate through entrees such as beef stew, house-made meatloaf, and fried catfish. The all-American meals are washed down with desserts such as a malt presented in its chilled mixing can or a banana split presented upon the axe-blade that split it.
Inside each 59 Diner location, friendly chatter ripples from booth to booth and white-capped servers scurry around dishing out retro classics. Recognized by the Houston Press as among the city's best in 2009, 59 Diner's made-from-scratch milk shakes and malts slide across tables in old-fashioned glasses before coating tongues in such flavors as mocha, fudge, and Oreo. Sweet sips offset savory burgers, patty melts, and all-day breakfast specials, which can also be ordered in pint-size portions for younger patrons. Meals transport tongues to the past, and jukeboxes release vintage tunes into the air, inspiring guests to try to catch their favorite notes inside empty glasses.
The seasoned chefs at Dimassi's Mediterranean Buffet whip up unlimited portions of authentic Middle Eastern cuisine seven days a week. Partnered patrons survey the robust buffet to plot their takeover of fresh, house-made bread sauced with hummus or baba ghanouj, a roasted and seasoned eggplant purée. Endless supplies of savory entrees silence even the chattiest tummies with chicken kebabs and baked-fish-shaped pacifiers. Diners not on speaking terms with salt may opt for Dimassi’s spinach baked with chickpeas, onions, garlic, and cilantro, and herbivores can nosh on an assortment of seasoned veggies or a greek salad with feta, olive oil, and aged balsamic vinegar. Dining duos toast to the possibility of falafel shot put becoming a common party game with unlimited glasses of iced tea or soft drinks. Fistfuls of jam cookies or ladyfingers with walnuts, sugar, and rose and orange water give meals a delicately sweet sendoff.
A bevy of herbs and spices—informed by the New Orleans amalgam of French, Caribbean, Spanish, African, Vulcan, and Native American cultures—enlivens the signature chicken pieces on Frenchy’s menu.

Though not included with this Groupon, diners can complement their meal with one of Frenchy’s tasty side dishes, including collard greens ($1.99–$5.39), potato salad ($1.69–$3.99), and creole gumbo with hot sausage ($2.89–$5.49).
