Block 37 AMC Movie Theater Food Review | CHICAGO LOOP

Block37 3

I went to the new AMC theater located at Block 37.  I wrote about the general experience in Block 37 AMC Movie Theater | CHICAGO LOOP.  However, I wanted to speak separately about the theaters food. 

The Block 37 AMC theater is marketing itself as a dine-in experience.  AMC is offering more then just dinner and a movie.  The Block 37 location is offering luxury.  For me that luxury centers arounds the meal options.  The new AMC dine-in theater at Block 37 does not disappoint.  

I sampled varies items of the food menu and was very pleased.  The food menu has section called snacks and shares those items cost $8.  Off that menu I tasted the boneless wings.  The boneless wings are hand battered all white meat chicken.  It comes with two dipping sauces.  The ranch sauce was very tasty with great favor.  I also had the crab & avocado sushi roll.  Each sushi roll is hand rolled to order.  They include a crab and surimi mix, cucumber, avocado, Japanese & Sriracha mayo.  It’s plated with wasabi, picked ginger and soy sauce.

They dinning experience menu includes 8 specialty burgers.  Three being chicken option and one veggie.  The burgers are at a price point of $12 with a $2 upgrade if you like the bison over the standard ground chuck and brisket blend.  I had the Rancho burger with bacon added and it tasted like a heaven on a toasted brioche bun.  The Rancho burger doesn’t come with bacon but the Royal burger does.  However, the Rancho burger included everything I love on a burger.  It comes with roasted poblano peppers,  jalapeño peppers,  caramelized onions, chipotle ketchup, lettuce, tomato, royal sauce and all being topped with  pepper jack cheese.  Hmmmm I can still taste the goodness.

There’s also salads bowls  and baskets options ranging from $8 to $16.  I didn’t try those items because I opted for the gumbo mac off the mac menu.  This is hands down the best macaroni I have ever had.  The gumbo mac comes with roasted shrimp, smoked andouille sausage, aged jack cheese sauce, sweet bell peppers and creole spice.  As I’m writing this I’m wishing I had another bowl.  

If you have a sweet tooth the AMC offers cinnamon-sugar doughnuts with salted cameral dipping sauce.  There’s also hand spun made to order milkshakes in 6 flavor choices.  There’s a kids menu and  standard movie treats.

Now if you find yourself thirsty.  They have the Coca-Cola freestyle machine that offers a 100 plus non alcoholic drink options.  Also fruit smoothies, water, iced tea, milk, hot chocolate, cappuccino, latte and espresso shot.  If you want something a little stronger this location comes with AMC brand bar MacGuffins.  MacGuffins is a full service bar that mixes up specialty drinks like hurricane to long island iced teas.  They will shake up 5 different flavors of hard lemonades.  MacGuffins pours up martinis and margaritas including the frozen kind.  They offer a wide range of draft and bottle beer.  From domestic, craft, imported and specialty.  If you’re a wine sipper MacGuffins has 13 white and red wines to pick from.  MacGuffins is in the theater’s lobby area so you’re free to dine and have a drink even if your not taking in a movie.
