About The Doghouse at 3Below Theaters

A dynamic entertainment destination, 3Below Theaters & Café serves as another jewel in San Jose’s crown for accessible, quality “third place” experiences. By creating a space that is inviting, intriguing, and includes a myriad of programs, we give visitors a unique experience from the moment they walk into the facility.

When guests exit the three fully themed theaters and head into the creatively-themed lobby, they are greeted by caring and capable staff and find themselves always impressed by the commitment to ensure quality customer service for every aspect of the venue.

And who says a hot dog is just a hot dog anyway? We’ve taken your favorite childhood foods and decked them out! Like the many canines that inhabit a puppy playground the DOGHOUSE is all about variety. 

Everybody loves a great hot dog. Some like theirs served the classic way — between toasted buns with a drizzle of mustard, ketchup and relish. Others prefer their Hebrew National All Beef sprinkled with sauerkraut, Old-World style. Some like hot dogs crafted with a creative twist — like a Morning Star Vegetarian Dog with Teriyaki Sauce, Yuzu Mayo, and Pickled Ginger, our TERIYAKI DOG.  Want to change things up? Try the BOMBAY DOG, beef or veggie with Aioli Coconut Curry and Mango Chutney. Or bite into the BANGERS & MASH DOG, a beef or veggie dog with Tater Tots and Steak Sauce. No matter which hot dog you choose, the DOGHOUSE serves up the best hot dogs in the Valley and each pair perfectly with a side of tater tots or home-style potato salad.

Our creativity doesn’t stop with hot dogs…Tater Tots, Pretzels, Nachos, Samosas, Taquitos, AND Potstickers all come with a wide array of diverse dips! 

To satisfy your sweet tooth, come visit us for a taste of real Gelato Italiano and a multitude of bakery sweets sure to hit the spot.  Come enjoy a cup of gelato on our sunny patio in beautiful Downtown San Jose!! Come enjoy a cup of fresh, creamy authentic Italian gelato freshly made locally waiting just for you! 

The food and beverage offerings will accommodate the varied ages of our guests. Comfort foods will be the foundation of the menu. Organic and healthier versions of these comfort foods will be offered. The chef will provide options that are not noisy if eaten/served in the theatre. Food and beverage menus will be available before, during and after entertainment.
