Next week Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hits theaters and we are more than ready. During this final week leading up to the movie we’ve readied our Star Wars outfits, set up our Star Wars games, and now we can fill our Hutt-tastic bellies with a Star Wars-themed menu from Alamo Drafthouse.
Alamo Drafthouse is known for combining food and service with a unique movie-going experience, and with such a detailed menu homage to Star Wars, it’s no wonder that they’ve been named “the best theater in America” by Entertainment Weekly and “the best theater in the world” by Wired.
With nods to iconic Star Wars language like Nerfs and Wasaka Berries, this menu proves that these hardcore fans have channeled their love of the movies to create an amazing edible homage to Star Wars. In addition to the themed-food, Alamo Drafthouse even went so far as to create a specially designed die-cut Millennium Falcon menu. It may not look like much, but it’s got it where it counts, kid.
