Pocket Sandwich Theatre

5400 E. Mockingbird Lane
Dallas, TX 75206
Best Of


  • Daily 2pm-6pm
  • Reservations Accepted
If you’re like us, you’ve seen the sign for Pocket Sandwich Theatre while driving down Mockingbird Lane and wondered if they had falafel. Alas, it’s not a takeout joint but a theater specializing in comedies and melodramas that encourage audience participation (think popcorn-throwing). Late nights feature everything from stand-up comedy and improv to burlesque. Also, there really are sandwiches -- and plenty of other food items, plus pitchers of beer and wine to enjoy during the show.
