    If you like gaming, you must make it your quest to make your way here at least once. There's so much to do.

    I grew up in Dunellen. My Uncle Ed Montross opened the place back in the 70's Tons of fun and good times were had there in the 70's and 80's. Glad to see it still open and I will have to go there soon

    Check this place out! Have a Break Steak followed by A Wiffle, then play a few rounds of Pump doubles! Chris is awesome! Go on his train too haha! Machines: ITG2 Dedi, PIU Fiesta, GF, Pop'n, DDR....

    I love this place, one of the few arcades in NJ and even the east coast that regularly updates their cabinets, has ITG, Pump It Up, and DDR, and makes good and cheap cheesesteaks. Recommended.

    I suggest you get the cheese steak special. A steakum type sandwich, thin and crispy fries and a soda for $6. Best deal.

    the air hockey table doesn't produce air, thus making it a slow paced game. no wonder it's only 50 cents to play.

    If you play ITG, play the mudkyp charts. They're the best!!

    One of the last remaining meccas for Asian music games on the East Coast. Worth the quick trip from NYC. As of11/25: DDREx, ITG2, 2 Technika 2s, Pop'n Music 14, Keyboardmania, IIDX 19 Lincle. Go!
