    Great arcade with many classic games (Burger Time!) and pinball machines. There is a full bar and many of the items on their food menu can be made vegan.

    Fun and cheap date place. Bring quarters to play the games and wear shoes you won't cry over when someone inevitably spills beer on them.

    What's not to like about this place? Awesome selection of stuff, immaculately maintained machines, and a place to hang out and drink/snack. SPEND YOUR MONIES HERE!

    This bar is home to one of the three copies of Killer Queen, the hottest arcade game since Asteroids. Bring a couple friends and experience it here first.

    Great cheap arcade games for $0.25 or $0.50 a round. Grab a drink and some snacks. You're going to stay a while.

    '94 World Cup pinball in upstairs in corner to the left as you head upstairs, opposite Paperboy. Ask for refunds downstairs when pinball eats your quarters.

    The blaring death metal drove us outside into the record low temperatures. I prefer Coin Jam in Salem.

    Killer queen is a great game. Play with at least 6 people. Ask others to join in the fun. They will thank you for teaching them
