Back in the late 1970s, Buster opened a restaurant known for its tasty food and friendly service. A few doors down, Dave opened an outrageous place for entertainment and games where adults were irresistibly drawn for fun. The two young entrepreneurs noticed people rotating between their establishments, and an idea started to form, "What if we put them all under one roof?" With Dave’s name first because he won a coin toss, they opened the first Dave & Buster’s in December 1982 located in Dallas, TX. Today there are over 120+ locations nationwide. Each store has more state-of-the-art games than ever, more mouth-watering menu items and the most innovative drinks anywhere.
