Back in the 1970s, Buster opened a restaurant known for its tasty food and friendly service. A few doors down, Dave opened an outrageous place for fun and games for adults. The two young entrepreneurs noticed people rotating between their establishments, and an idea started to form: What if they put both under one roof? With Dave’s name first because he won a coin toss, they opened the first Dave & Buster’s in December 1982. Since then, more than 70 stores have opened across the country.
Today, much has changed. There are more cool games than ever in each store (over $1 million worth), more menu items (we started with one entrée on the menu!) and the most innovative drinks anywhere (where else can you get a drink with strawberry-flavored ice cubes?). And now, with the addition of D&B Sports, you can watch the games and play the games. We’re always introducing new games and menu items, but there’s one thing you can always count on at Dave & Buster’s: we’re the only place to Eat, Drink, Play and Watch Sports®!
