In a college oriented town, there's an establishment for food and fun known as Dave and Buster's.
Its got a fun atmosphere that will remind you of a Chuck E. Cheese's for grown-ups but the kids are allowed in too (during the day at least).
There's a pretty good selection of foods on their menu but the food is not meant to wow you. The prices are more on the expensive side so be sure to pick your poison wisely.
I went with a group of friends not too long ago and we payed separately for our meals. Of course we also bought from the Eat and Play deal where you pick one of the designated meals for one price and get a $10 play card to play in the massive arcade that makes up the majority of the building.
The food was as expected and the service was good. everything came out quickly since we were practically the only ones eating at the time.
We spent our play cards and had some friendly competition on the competitive games like Guitar Hero and Dance Dance revolution but that isn't all that's there. There are games for everyone.
Besides the prices, the only downfall would have to be the fact that there is only 2 Dave and Buster's establishments within the entire state of Arizona and they're both relatively close together. So basically they're only catering to the college kids and not the people who want to have fun in, say, Flagstaff or Tucson. Perhaps a little expansion is in order?
You'll have a great time if you go, but just don't think of going every night unless you're prepared to break the bank. Make it a once-a-month deal and treat yourself and the family or friends to a night of food and fun. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: Great for Fun with Families or Groups
Cons: A Little Pricey
