My kids LOVE Chuck E. Cheese. Me, I try to avoid it like the plague because it's filthy and the food is outrageously expensive for cardboard and week old salad. Creeps me out, like I plan for an upset stomach on the one occasion per year that we go there. You just *know* that they use the most inferior ingredients anywhere, and I have no idea how they pass health inspections. Total rip off for the food, but the entertainment value can't be beat if you're under 8. And the location is perfect.
