Alamo Drafthouse - Vintage Park

114 Vintage Park Blvd., Building H, Suite J Houston, TX 77070 | Jersey Village | 832-559-5959

Location Description:

Alamo Drafthouse has long been known as a great spot to catch a movie with a glass of cold craft beer delivered right to your seat during the film. Both area locations -- the other one is near Katy -- recently upped their games by adding cocktails and creating a menu that's much more restaurant than movie theater in terms of selection and quality. Though some appetizers miss the mark, the pizzas and burgers are the stars of the show, making use of fresh ingredients and simple preparation to delight diners from the previews through the credits. With the simple system of writing down your order and flagging it for the servers to see, food is prepared and delivered throughout the course of the movie by nearly invisible waiters trying their best to stay quiet and out of site. And let's face it, few things pair with movies like booze, so the craft margaritas and spiked shakes are a welcome addition to any moviegoing experience.
