What’s The Best Food On The Bistro Menu?

One of the toughest parts about going to a restaurant is not deciding how much to tip, but rather what you’re going to choose from the menu. Which is why it’s pretty common for people to ask the waiter for recommendations on what the most popular food is.

Let’s skip that step when you head to a Cinemark Bistro – I’m going to tell you what’s beston the menu!

Pulled Pork Nachos Are A Hit

Dive right in and guarantee yourself a good meal with the Pulled Pork Nachos. They’re a massive hit at their cinemas, but especially so at the Cinemark Movie Bistro Charlotte.

Nachos not for you? Give their Margherita Flatbread a shot.

Otherwise – lighten up your movie-experience with a simple Caesar Salad. It comes with romaine lettuce, croutons, shredded parmesan, and a nice dressing. You can also add in chicken or salmon for $3.00.

Does Cinemark’s Bistro Menu Change?

Yes, but not by much. It’s difficult for a national theater chain to serve the same menu at all of their locations. Especially when they’re spread out all over the country in places such as Fort Collins, Charlotte, Edinburgh, Lake Charles, and even El Paso. And with new bistros opening up such as the one in Boca Raton in Miami, it’s going to be even more difficult to keep the consistency.


The logistics involved in sourcing the ingredients and making the meals to the same specifications at all of their cinemas is quite a difficult task. Even for the third largest cinema chain in the country.

Take another chain for example, AMC’s Dine-In menu varies (but only a little) at each of their locations. As well, Cineplex’s VIP menu being served up to our Canadian friends is striving to keep their menu consistent across their cinemas.

Is The Bistro Worth The Cost?

That depends on the kind of movie experience you’re after.

If you’re happy snacking on a tub of Cinemark’s popcorn with a fountain drink at your side to wash it down, then probably – no, ordering from the bistro menu isn’t for you.

I Know – Cinemark’s Popcorn Can Be Tough To Beat

On the other hand, if the sound of watching one of the latest blockbusters on the big screen, with a side of Salmon Style Street Tacos accompanied by a fine glass of wine get’s you going – you know what to do. Head down to your local Cinemark Bistro and get ordering!
