    True to its name, Barcadia is half bar, half arcade, and offers video games from Centipede and Dig Dug to Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat, plus skee-ball ramps and popular bar food. Read more

    A friend told me that this bar was awesome, has old arcades and beer. Great I'm in! I get there and the arcades that I want to play with my friends are broken. They have Jenga but it's always busy.

    You get to play all the classic old school arcade games while getting drunk. Plus they have Life Size Jenga. If you're a gamer and like to drink this place is perfect.

    Surprisingly dead when I was there.great selection of drinks and food...but had my wallet stolen. Waitstaff was helpful, but bartender was an absolute douche. Great service from Amber and Kelly though

    One of the best new spots in town, thanks to its laid-back, good-time vibes, huge tap beer selections, no-nonsense bar food and an amazing array of old-school video and arcade games.

    Bunch of classic arcade games and multicade emulators. Some of which are in less than ideal condition, but most of them working. So-so drink prices and decent service. Great patio area.

    Food and drinks have always been great. Some of the arcade games are broken, so spend your money wisely. Skeeball was great!

    Sip on $3 Texas drafts while you play games for free on Tuesdays. Stop in on Mondays to wash down a half price Trucker plate with happy hour specials all night long!

    Patio is greatness, especially with the jumbo jenga. Also, it will be brought to you attention that you're not as good at video games as you remember....if you're 30+, that is.
