Excellent food, nothing compares to a Tortilla burger with lots of jalapeños and some crinkle cut fries! Dairyland is noted to support other hometown businesses such as buying fresh meat from Stantons and produce from Frobergs Farm. Dairyland creates a unique family environment that is welcoming people of all ages to come order some food or a homemade milkshake &... More

The hamburger and chicken sandwich was good, not greasy. Fried mushrooms were plump and crispy. My only complaint was the fried pickles, the ones with pickles were okay but some had nothing in them, would be better with thicker pickles. People were polite, there was a wait but I expected that for a Saturday lunch.

Home of Alvin's tortilla burger! A flat crispy tostado shell instead of bread. Great hamburgers and fries also. Outside seating.

Glad to see this hometown favorite has made it back. This has been in town for generations and it's nice to see it revamped on the outside but food remains the same. They employs high school kids just like in the old days. Kudos on the facelift.

It's been in Alvin forever. My dad graduated from Alvin High School in the 60's and used to eat here. I'm a fan of the Charburger. My wife loves the Tortilla Burger. The food is very good for what it is... affordable fast food. I'm always happy after eating there. Brings up good memories.

They have amazing fries and burgers loaded with yummy greasy goodness! Although, my problem is they do not accept anything but cash. It is not a great place too look at either. But, it is good.

This is one of the last places where nearly everyone who works there is a family member. They truly deliver a great burger at a reasonable price. The fries are also great. Don't forget to get an icecream and m&m shake desert. We have just stoped by for drinks for us and deserts for the kids. I have driven into... More

Anyone who knows Alvin knows Dairy Land. It is a serious hole-in-the-wall hamburger joint, and my mom used to joke that they never change the grease, but I am here to tell you that you are missing out if you don't try their Tortilla Burger. Instead of a bun, they serve the burger on crispy tortillas. If you order the... More
