    Ok, so it's not technically a restaurant, but nobody bothered to tell them. You won't eat this well at any movie theatre, and thanks to the roving waiters, you'll never have to leave your seat either.

    Get there really early and watch the oldies before the real show starts. Drink a beer and eat fried pickles while doing so. Best combination ever.

    Austin-based chain of dinner-and-a-movie theaters shows first-run flicks, but it's their signature events - sing-alongs, Weird Wednesdays, Master Pancake and more - that make them a local favorite.

    Hands down best place to see a movie in Austin. Aside from their great selection and the fact that you can drink a pitcher while you watch, the pre-feature on-screen entertainment is spot on.
