In 1982, Dave and Buster headed to “Restaurant Row” in Dallas where they found an empty 40,000 square-foot warehouse. Having been proclaimed certifiably crazy by many in the restaurant industry, Dave and Buster dove headlong into construction. With Dave’s name first because he won a coin toss, they opened the first Dave & Buster’s in December 1982. Today, much has changed with over 110 locations, each store has more state-of-the-art games than ever, more mouth-watering menu items and the most innovative drinks anywhere. From wings to steaks, we’ve got whatever suits your appetite and our premium bar assures we’re stocked to satisfy! Plus, you can watch your game on one of our massive HDTVs with epic stadium sound.
At Dave & Buster’s, we live by and are committed to the culture pillars that have served us well for nearly 40 years. We share our Founder’s Spirit by believing that passion, pride and drive make a difference. We share a You Got It! Attitude so that when a guest or team member asks for us, we tell them “You Got It!” We believe that Everybody is Somebody; new ideas can come from anyone, and we believe everyone can contribute to our success. Last, we are Fun to Our Core because entertaining our guests and showing them a great time is in our DNA.
In living our culture pillars, we also know having clear governance and accountability are essential to meeting our commitments to our key stakeholders: our shareholders, our guests, our team members and our communities. We are committed to doing what is right, conducting ourselves with integrity and ensuring our actions follow the highest ethical standards.
