I love this place. The buffet has really good down home cooking like Mama used to make. It's clean and friendly. My grandsons love it too. Fruit and salad bar, meat and hot sides, rolls and cornbread, desserts and ice cream. Great place.

I wasn't interested in the buffet, although it looked like a pretty good selection. Ordered off the menu, but it was obvious not many people do. Just had the chicken straps but it was still way more than I could eat. Very reasonably priced for the size of the meal.

There is something for every one one the Buffet at Parks. Buffet specialties change daily. Nice well rounded salad bar. Small desert included. Bottomless tea glasses. Sweet attentive waitstaff.

I came here one day thinking I would try it out since I had been every where else in Alvin and it was a terrible idea. The food had been sitting out and was old, the things on the walls were COVERED in dust and hanging over the food and tables, it was just bad.

Nearly every time we are in Alvin, we stop to enjoy Parks. Remodeling isn't necessary every few years. We like the 70's Old Town atmosphere and have been enjoying their food for decades. Long live the Park family.
