I watched the SuperBowl here because I wanted to check it out. I've always had the intention to try the Parkway but the drive across town disuaded me. The El Cerrito location turned out to be great. The food is at least two levels above other theaters in quality and one level lower in price, making it a very chowish place.

I had the "Zombie Cow" sandwich, tasty grilled beef (flank or flapmeat) served warm to my seat although the promised pickle did not show with the sandwich. I also had the nachos, enormous with all the additions promised on the menu, not just the strange yellow stuff of other theater venues, a couple of Trumers and a decent slice of chocolate cake and everything was served in real dishes, not paper. (Even popcorn comes in a bowl.) You must order at the counter or the connected cafe and the made to order stuff is delivered to your seat in the theater.

Thumbs up to anyone who wants to see a movie and eat at the same time.
