PETE TITTL: Dave & Buster's upped its food game

Our family relationship with Dave & Buster's started decades ago on surf trips to Orange County. It was the first time we visited and good times were had by all. The food back then was acceptable — on a par with Chili's — but the games were always first-rate and we walked away just wondering why they didn't have one in Bakersfield, given all the families who live here.

Of course, over the years we got our own, locally-owned variation on this chain, such as the two Firehouse locations and The BLVD so it seemed like the need was being met, and both of those added bowling alleys, lots of pool tables and a true family event vibe that was quite inviting.
