Chuck E Cheese but NOT

Anyplace in the south valley, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert, etc. that has the games anf fun atmosphere for kids but also serves decent food. Taking the grandkids and family out tonight and wanted something the kids would enjoy but with edible food. Any Ideas?

  1. Amazing Jakes @ Gilbert Rd/Baseline is your place. The amount of games they have is AMAZING, lol and they hve a decent buffet with a great salad bar , soup, pasta, and of course, pizza.

      I couldn't remember the name of that place (and couldn't find it on Google Maps), thanks. I've been there a few times for a few kid's birthdays - it's actually not that bad.

        I can wholeheartedly second Amazing Jake's. The buffet is better than it has any right to be, especially considering their clientele. You certainly aren't going to mistake it for Bianco's, but I think you shouldn't have too difficult of a time finding something that you enjoy.
