    The food is good but their prices have gone a little nuts lately and the food has gotten boring over the years

    Took our kids for dinner and a movie and although we arrived 30 minutes early, our food didn't come out until the end of the movie (after I got up to complain) and our drinks came out wrong twice.

    Arrive early and watch a strange compilation of videos and previews that are ostensibly related to your feature film. Also eat fried pickles, they're ballin'.

    Out-of-towner here. SO glad my Austin friends took me here; loved the experience. CANNOT WAIT for them to expand out to a theater in my chunk of the world.

    This Drafthouse has tables for two, instead of one long bar table per row, so keep that in mind when reserving seats or else you'll be sitting at a table with someone else's significant other.

    This applies to all of them, these places are for people who love movies. They put on special events all the time with special features going on. The food is good too considering it is a movie theater

    Best Alamo Drafthouse in Austin. I would definitely reserve the tickets online because chances are you won't get tickets an hour before the movie if you show up. Love the chips and queso!

    The Alamo Drafthouse at Slaughter is GORGEOUS. Theater has the bar 400 Rabbits attached which makes for a swankier night out of cocktails & film. This is definitely nicest of the Drafthouse theaters. Read more
