Even though construction has yet to begin, approval of a 35,000-square-foot Braintree Dave & Buster’s location — remember the one that would lure “out of town drug dealers”? — was granted a few weeks ago. It only took seven public hearings and eight months! In the end, a representative for the company assured the board that there “are protections in place for the community.” (Gamer riff-raff beware!) Well now the Dallas-based chain is looking to add yet another Massachusetts location.
According to the Globe, Dave & Buster’s took out an application in June for a Burlington location, said to be near the Burlington Mall, on a 12-acre plot that once housed a Dodge dealership. Discussions for the 660-seat gaming restaurant are slated to begin sometime in November. With North Shore and South Shore strongholds in place, Dave & Buster’s could begin taking over Jillian’s turf.
