Andy Smith, General Manager, Dave & Buster’s RIO, spoke at the cutting noting that he is from Maryland and excited to share the Dave & Buster’s culture & excitement with the community.

Did you know Dave & Buster are real guys? Back in the late 1970s, Buster opened a restaurant known for its tasty food and friendly service. A few doors down, Dave opened an outrageous place for entertainment and games where adults were irresistibly drawn for fun. The two young entrepreneurs noticed people rotating between their establishments, and an idea started to form, put them under one roof.
