Our server was great he was on the ball and took care great care of our kids. The food was just ok in my opinion. I had the Philly Cheese Steak, nothing at all like a real philly. THERE ARE NO GREEN PEPPERS on a real cheesesteak! The games are a total rip off! Paid $50 for two cards for... More

A bucket list item for my tweener, the kids loved this place! It felt like Vegas for kids! downstairs was a quiet-ish restaurant and bowling alley. Upstairs was the billards room and the arcade. The husband and I sat in the bar to have drinks and appetizers while the kids ran loose. I had a strawberry margarita which was average,... More

Food was fine, it is a little smaller than I remember other D&B's to be, mostly run of the mill arcade type games, like Chuck E Cheese.

This is a huge family fun centre in a big desert ridge outdoor mall with a sports bar for the parents. A bowling alley, billiards room, restaurant and massive arcade for kids. The menu is huge but the food is kind of just average. The best deal is the meal and game cards combo for $17.99 or $27.99 which is... More

Our server was nice, and that's the only good thing I can say. They were out of many items we wanted to order. The place needs a really good cleaning. The game room was like a sweaty locker room. I definitely would not recommend this place.

We suffered this place whilst the kids had fun. Its a fine recipe for over 10s to mess about on gaming machines (probably preparing the way for a life of gambling but lets not be negative) - the food is tasty but clearly heavy on the fryer. Overall worth a trip for the kids sake but parents take ear defenders... More

It's a consistent experience at every D&B. This one located in Desert Ridge is clean, friendly with well-kept machines. Missile Command was there, thank goodness.

The place had tons of games, but many were not working. We took the 10 year old there as a treat, and I sat outside on the balcony while the baby napped. The more I looked around, the more I didn't want to touch anything. Everything looked coated with dirt. I wasn't expecting it to be spotless, but yikes! We... More

I used to go to the D&B in Hawaii, I haven't been to a D&B in over a year in AZ. My wife and I always have a Connect 4 competition and a Air Hockey competition. I'm very competitive, but always lose to my wife... wink, wink. Then we had a competition against my son and his girlfriend on Pac-man....... More
