Kids and video games go together like peanut butter and jelly.

For families looking for a fun and entertaining place to enjoy some time together and get a great bite to eat, look no further than Dave & Buster’s. We visited the Tempe location. Located in Tempe Marketplace, it’s a great spot for kids and adults of all ages.

The menu has a good mix of dishes for everyone’s tastes. Like hamburgers and cheeseburgers? They have them and some amazing ones to boot. Like chicken fingers or other fried goodies such as French fries, fried pickles, or pretzel dogs? They have those too. And for the adults (or kids) looking for a little bit more, there’s an amazing steak option, grilled chicken, fire grilled Atlantic salmon, and even BBQ ribs. If you’re looking to try a healthier option, Dave & Buster’s also offers a range of scrumptious salads.

Don’t forget to save room for dessert, as they have several delicious options. From cinnamon churros served with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces to Big Daddy chocolate cake or an amazing cheesecake dip, you’ll want indulge.

To quench your thirst, enjoy soda beverage options, iced tea, cool flavored lemonades and slushes for the kids, and alcoholic options for the over-21 crowd.

Dave & Buster’s isn’t just about the food. The entertainment and games alone are worth a visit to this happening spot. With dozens of video game options to choose from, there really is something for everyone. Claw games where you can earn a prize on the spot, games where you can earn tickets to collect for an even bigger prize at the end of your visit, or video games that are simply fun to play and can challenge even the biggest gamers.

If you’re looking for gaming that offers more realism, check out their Virtual Reality spot, found on the video game floor. Get a thrill from Vader Immortal and Terminator: Guardian of Fate. Note: if you tend to get motion sick on amusement park rides, you may want to ask the employees about the level of motion provided by these games.

Whether you’re looking for something to do with friends for a birthday party, or hanging out with the family on a Saturday night, Dave & Buster’s is an awesome spot to spend time together. They do offer special packages for things such as game passes and tokens as well as packages for those looking to celebrate something special such as a birthday or graduation.
