In the late 70's in Little Rock, Arkansas, two establishments existed side by side in location but worlds apart in concept. Inside the classic setting of the Missouri Pacific Train Station, two very different establishments enjoyed a brisk trade.
A man named Buster ran a favorite watering hole. Buster's restaurant boasted casual elegance, warm historic ambience and wonderful eclectic food served up by some of the friendliest people in town.
Next door, another man was also enjoying a bustling business. Dave ran "Slick Willy's World of Entertainment." Here people were almost irresistibly drawn by his selection of outrageous fun and games for big people. These two young entrepreneurs and neighbors became fast friends.
Perseverance, faith and scores of talented people put Dave & Buster's on the map for good, and we've grown to include locations across the country and in Canada. Our goal is to open four new stores every year, so if we haven't made it to your city yet, just wait!
Today there's only one place where you can eat new American, fun gourmet food; AND drink your choice of fun, innovative beverages; AND play the biggest and best arcade games around-all under one roof! That one place is your local Dave & Buster's, where you always get great food, drinks and big-time fun served up by the friendliest people in town. That's always been our guiding principle... and not such a crazy idea after all. – less
