    Love the salted caramel milkshake! Fried potato/cheese balls w/sour cream are also delicious! Seats are very comfy and staff is unobtrusive during movies which is a big detractor for me usually.

    There are two specials not on the menu. Cheap date - 2 salads 2 pizzas and a pitcher of soda for $25. Rich date - 2 salads 2 pizzas and a pitcher of beer or bottle of wine for $35. Ask your server

    This theatre is awesome. The preshow are clips, quips, and cartoons pertaining to the movie. No annoying advertisements. Staff are friendly and food is tasty w/ good portions. Pricey, but worth it.

    The Philly cheese steak is delicious. Try it as a wrap! Also, the popcorn is awesome with bottomless refills! Get there early for a good seat for popular new releases.

    I like the restaurant like catering, I dont even have to get out of my seat to order. If you get there late enough there will be no one manning the entrance so you can practically enter for free.😄

    Remember if you work at H-E-B show them your H-E-B partner perk card at the ticket outlet and get a free large popcorn coupon when you buy a movie ticket and that's all alamo drafthouses in san anto!!

    THE BEST movie theater in town. :) Show up a little early to see the previews that are either the same subject/genre as the movie you're seeing, or have the same actors.

    Use the parking garage! It's underground parking, around the left of the theater. Elevator right up to box office level. Sad I didn't know about this the previous dozen times I've been here.

    My usual go to place for movies! Great draft beer selection and they kick out talkers, chatters and anyone not interested in having a great movie experience.

    The entertainment before the movie is awesome. This theater is preferable because it's a bit newer than the Westlakes location.

    This location is the newest of the San Antonio locations. In case you feel like changing up the scene from the more "rustic looking" ones in town.

    This place is legit. The beer is expensive so either go big and get the Drafthouse ESB or become a hipster and get the 2.50 Blue Ribbon. Not sure how that beer got an award. But anyway order a pizza.

    Nice to see ADH making a stronger presence in the San Antonio market. Keep an eye out for special features that don't fall into the your "normal" release category of hollywood blockbusters..super fun!

    Show up before even the previews start, otherwise the food won't show up until half way through the movie and will be cold. (this happened to me for cowboys & aliens at 7 pm August 12)

    Call ahead for show times. They never match their own website, let alone Google, Yahoo, etc. Seems like its intentional to get you to spend more at the bar before the movie starts. Smart, but lame.
