Okay, so Dave & Buster’s isn’t really the typical restaurant I would blog about but I went recently after an almost 2-year break. I was happy to be back 🙂 I used to live about 10 miles from a location in Southern California and went often for their Happy Hour specials. Since moving to San Francisco, the closest one now is 40+ miles away which isn’t too far, but we’re just not used to driving over 10 miles to get anywhere anymore…
The Eat & Play specials are great! For $15.99 you get a big plate of food plus a $10 card that you can use to play games in their Chuck-E-Cheese-like arcade. The food is also surprisingly good considering people normally wouldn’t go to D&B just to eat. The portions are spectacular for the price. My Fried Shrimp Platter came with 10 good-sized shrimp and lots of french fries. It’s not the healthiest meal, but once in a while doesn’t hurt 🙂 The honey mustard sauce was pretty tasteless except being sweet. There was no mustard flavor to it at all. The cocktail sauce is much better.
My boyfriend got the Black Jack BBQ Chicken. I personally didn’t like it since I don’t really like grilled skinless/boneless chicken breast and I’m not the biggest fan of BBQ sauce unless on a burger or a proper piece of chicken (with skin & bones!). His dish seemed a whole ton healthier than mine though! It came with steamed vegetables and loaded mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were cold upon arrival so I didn’t really enjoy that either. The best part of his dish to me was the veggies.
The $20 complimentary game cards we received gave us 30 minutes of unadulterated kid-again entertainment, which might have been even better than the food.
