Dave & Buster’s can always be relied on to deliver a good time, complete with mouthwatering eats and thrilling games. Conveniently situated near the Tanger Outlets, the Sevierville location makes for the perfect outing after a successful day of shopping.

The vast Dave & Buster’s menu offers plenty of options. Most items fit the game day theme that dominates the establishment; this is where you go to enjoy a greasy appetizer or meal during football season.

Options are decidedly limited for those with dietary restrictions; if you’re not in the mood for hefty doses of meat, cheese, and carbs, you’re likely to leave disappointed. That being said, Dave & Buster’s offers optional plant-based patties on its burgers to keep vegetarians happy. On the hunt for a low-carb meal? Substitute traditional pasta with zucchini noodles.

No matter which appetizer or entree you order, you’ll want to accompany it with a refreshing beverage. The drink menu includes plenty of domestic and imported beers, as well as a few local selections. You’re also encouraged to order a margarita made in-house with agave tequila and natural lime juice. If you prefer caffeine to alcohol, opt for a Red Bull smoothie or a Dr. Pepper. All soft drinks come with free refills. Other non-alcoholic options include coffee, tea, and a selection of Minute Maid and Simply juices.

If you’re not too exhausted after your gut-busting meal, don’t hesitate to hit up the arcade. There, you’ll find a variety of games, including such favorites as NBA Hoops, Rampage, and Wheel of Fortune. The arcade makes for the perfect distraction for kids who struggle to wait for meals at other restaurants.

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

Dip Trio
The perfect appetizer for enjoying the big game, this amazing starter comes complete with queso, guacamole, and vegetarian black bean dip. Enjoy with fresh tortilla chips before you move on to the main meal.

Garlic Parmesan Cheese Curds
Served alongside a rustic marinara sauce, these cheese curds are greasy in the best possible way. Best of all, your delicious purchase supports a great cause; for each order of Dave & Buster’s cheese curds, a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Chicken & Waffle Sliders
Chicken and waffles are a perennial favorite in Sevierville, but the slider concept takes this recipe to a whole new level. Featuring a smoky sauce that’s just hot enough and just sweet enough, these delicious sliders are served on tiny Belgian waffles sprinkled in powdered sugar. They also come with seasoned tater tots.

The Super Stack
You’d best arrive hungry if you intend to conquer this ambitious burger. Weighing over a pound, this gigantic burger comes stacked with multiple types of American cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles, garlic aioli, a house sauce, and of course, thick beef patties. If all that’s not enough, it comes, like all Dave & Buster’s burgers, with a side of fries.

Slow-Cooked Smokehouse BBQ Ribs
Bring a touch of St. Louis to Sevierville with this Dave & Buster’s favorite. Made from scratch, these slow-cooked ribs are basted in a delectable honey bourbon BBQ sauce and topped with delightfully crispy onions. Order a half rack — or a full rack if you’re feeling ambitious — and enjoy fries and apple slaw on the side.

Dave & Buster’s may be best known for its games, but the food also deserves praise. If you’re willing to splurge a little on a calorie-laden dish, you will be satisfied by a hearty meal that pairs perfectly with a cold beer and game day shenanigans.

Insider Tips:
– If you prefer a somewhat peaceful dining experience, you’ll definitely want to stay away from the sports bar area, which tends to be noisy. The standard dining area is considerably quieter.
– Service can be slow, even when the establishment doesn’t seem particularly busy. Think twice before visiting if you’re unable to set aside at least an hour.
