Within Studio Movie Grill's expansive auditoriums, towering screens enrapture audiences seated in plush leather recliners and at dining tables. As the familiar celebrity faces in blockbuster and cult-classic features deliver Oscar-worthy lines, sneakily quiet waiters deliver meals from a full menu decorated with more than 100 items, including gourmet pizzas, smoked ribs, and cocktails infused with the spirit of Daniel Day-Lewis. Bartenders at the lobby bar dole out glasses of premium liquors, wines, and draft beer before and after shows.

Grilling up a menu of delicious southwestern-style cuisine, Phat inflates bellies with large servings of stomach fuel.

For variety, Phat Burrito also serves up tacos ($2.55–$3), quesadillas ($5.56–$6.95), and tortilla salads ($6.70–$6.95). Thirsty patrons can secure a soft drink and devour their meals in the restaurant's festive interior or—when the warm weather comes out of hibernation—on the picnic-style patio. This Groupon is also valid for carryout orders, accommodating customers who prefer dining at home.

The Picante menu is founded on five main fillings—herb chicken, steak, pork carnitas, fish, and grilled vegetables. Moving up and down the counter, chefs fold these fillings into tacos, burritos, or bowls before adorning them with colorful salsas, spices, and guacamole. As they work, huge Mexican murals watch them from the walls, murals depicting vivid Mexican skeletons, bright green peppers, and a grinning portrait of Frida Kahlo. Beyond these images lie exposed brick walls that surround the tables and high-tops where guests bite into juicy burritos and sip on bottled beers. Out on the front patio, chrome-colored furniture sits beneath the vibrant green Picante sign, a few red umbrellas, and a big blue sky full of parachuters who love to land on patio furniture.
