Closed for business in 2017. As of this writing, no new tenant as yet identified. Its standard fare of corn dogs, soft-serve ice cream, and similar semi-fast food can be found at Coney Island and elsewhere on the island.

This is a walk up window that offers quick & cheap eats....mostly fried. Burgers, fries, etc. Good for quick bite or if your on a budget.

My husband and I picked up some quick food on the way back to the Catalina Express - he got a Quesadilla and I got a Hamburger.

This place has wonderful ice cream which I am told that has high butter fat which makes it so incredibly delicious.

Found this place on our second day there. They are very reasonably priced and the quality was very good. Wish I found then on our first day. We had breakfast burritos, fish tacos, ceviche and ice cream. All very yummy. No indoor seating but plenty...More

It's an island favorite for burgers, burritos, tacos, nachos and ice cream. My family often eats from here several times a day. The service is always friendly.

They have a huge menu and great prices. A lot of the restaurants in Avalon can be pricey so if you're looking to save a little money but still fill up, I'd highly recommend Pic Nic Fry. And the food was nice and tasty!

Great, cheap, late night or any time food. Awesome Breakfast Burrito, super hot hot sauce, simple, good veggie burrito. All in all this was definitely the cheapest and most filling food we found in Avalon.

Had a quesadilla. Can mess that up. The pozole smelled great, but didn't get that. We went there the next day, but the "waitress" never came to the window to help us even though she saw us standing there so we just left. This place...More

This was the only place that stayed open after 10pm. This is a walk up fast food spot located directly in town (Front Street). The food was OK, but not great. They also serve ice cream, which was yummy.
