Dave and Busters coming to Orlando
Dave and Busters is coming to Orlando on International Drive, to the old Race Rock building. Read more from the news link here
Note from Robert: Am I the only one who remembers when that was the Caruso's Palace building? Anyway, Dave and Busters (think: Chuck E. Cheese's for grown-ups, if you're not familiar with the chain) seems to me a perfect fit for I-Drive. So perfect that I wonder why I hadn't noticed there wasn't one there before.
I often describe D&B to people who don't know what it is as a grown-up Chuck E. Cheese :)
I am so excited. We have been driving to Jacksonville just to eat there every once in a while.
I love D&B in South Florida, and I always wondered why there wasn't one here. Yay! Now if they could just lower the prices a bit that would be great.
D&B is ok, but i think there a million other cooler options in O-town; that being said, i think it will do well. They should have had one a long time ago, im suprised it took this long.
I am beginning to think Greater Kansas City is a testing ground for Orlando eating establishments. Raglan Road, T-Rex, Dave & Busters... what's next,
OUTSTANDING! OUTSTANDING! OUTSTANDING!
Not the best idea. I really don't think it can hold up in an entertainment capital like Orlando. But i guess we will see!
I remember the old Caruso's Palace. Never ate there, nor when it was Race Rock. I will definitely go when it's D&B.
I miss X-S over at Pointe Orlando...
I don't know how that D&B will hold up against everything else from a tourism aspect, but the locals will surely take advantage of one in the area. The closest I know O-Town has for college kids and older of that sort is Friggin' and Keglers (I think that's what it's called). And that place is always packed, it will be nice having another alternative for the locals. Those are my two cents.
GREAT! I've been to one in Maryland, Atlanta, Dallas, San Antonio, Jacksonville, now Orlando!!! Funny...I just submitted a survey from Jacksonville requesting one in Orlando. Within the last year I moved from the Panhandle of Florida to Altamonte Springs and D&B is one of the biggest things I know of that we are missing...Just in time for my daughter's teenage years! Excellent food, excellent prices, and lots of fun. Now we can get lots of good use out of our gold cards!
Never even heard of the chain. Guess we don't get them in Canada, and I can't recall seeing any in the States.
I remember Caruso's! AND King Henry's Feast next door where the Olive Garden is now... :) I do love Dave & Buster's and think this is a perfect fit for Orlando, I just hope the I-Drive community can support it as it's not a quick & cheap food location.
What's good about DnB's is that all of the branches are linked together (except the Oahu, HI one for some reason)so your card that you use to play games can be used at different locations.
I remember Caruso's, it was next to King Henry's feast. I can remember when the only things between Orlando and Disney World were Jellystone Park campground and a Stuckey's.
D&B is cool, we used to frequent the one in Denver, Colorado when we lived there. However, there was also a place there called Fat City which was truly for the entire family. You walk in and on both sides were bowling alleys, in the back was minature golf, there was also regular skating as well as ice skating, laser tag and a crap load of D&B type video games/entertainment. They even had a bar there. Nothing like a one-stop shop for every age member of the family.
