Best place for families! We had our sons birthday party there two years ago pre covid and could not have been happier. This is a cool place for parties because the adults get to either relax at the table or go find your favorite retro games to play and possibly beat your super experienced gamer boys! Great bragging rights and didn't even mention the wonderful plates of food they offer. Lots to share at tables with your group. Will go any chance ce we have free.its an a plus establishment.

You can't find a better arcade experience in DFW. The staff is very strict on COVID-19 safety, but still super friendly. The games are in impeccable condition, like they were when they first released decades ago.

The Arlington location was great. Loved the nostalgia in remembering the arcade and the games I played. Kids loved the games and even my 12 yo daughter who doesn't like video games had fun.
