In the late 70's in Little Rock, AR, 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.
The two would open the first Dave and Buster's in December 1982 in a 40,000 square-foot warehouse in Dallas.
