The Alamo Drafthouse’s New Lunch Menu

I continuously tell people that The Alamo Drafthouse has the best food out of any dine-in theater.  I just assumed the food was good because of their tasty, unique dishes.  Plus unlike some theaters, they will modify your meals.  But the secret ingredient behind the Alamo’s delectable creations is Dusty Patek (Bar manager and creator of menu).

For the few of you who have seen Chef,  Dusty is like our local Carl Casper!  He has a strong passion for food and continues to push outside the box with his recipes.  This shows through in his inspiring menu.

Glass Half Full, which is the bar located in The Alamo, has launched a new lunch menu with a variety of quality items that everyone can enjoy.  Here are just a few of the many new choices that stood out.

Soups

A thick, hearty tomato basil soup served in a bread bowl, made from scratch.

Quite possibly the best French onion soup I have ever had. Best of all, both soups are served with a side of pasta salad that is bursting with flavor.  Pasta salads tend to be bland, but the Glass Half Full changes that stereotype with some chopped cucumber, feta cheese, and whatever delicious dressing that has been tossed in.

Salads & Wraps

All salads can be made into a wrap and you can add grilled chicken, steak, or tofu.

Beets & Oranges- Mixed Greens, Pistachios, Goat Cheese, Croutons, Sherry Vinaigrette

MY FAVORITE MENU ITEM!!! Mexican- Mixed Greens, Romaine Hearts, Avocado, Jicama, Cotija, Tortilla Crisps, Red Onion, Jalapeno Lime Vinaigrette.  I wish I had a suitable picture to show you but, sadly, this salad was devoured before I could take one.  It is recommended to add chicken, but I would be fine with just a tub as is.

Caesar- Romaine Hearts, Baby Romaine, Herb Parmesan, Cherry Tomatoes, Spiced Pumpkins Seeds.  Those who enjoy a little zing to their food, will particularly love this Caesar dressing’s spicy kick.
