My daughter loves this place. We go during lunch when they have the buffet. Chuck E. Cheese always comes out and hands out free tickets to the kids. You can find coupons online since it is expensive. Staff is always very friendly at this location.

Chuck E Cheese is a fun place to go for all ages. Can be alittle expensive so remember to find discount coupons or think about purchasing packages. Good ideal with stamping the same number on the hands of your family members so only the kids could leave the adults they came with. Seemed to be alittle under staffed with this... More

we ordered a pizza drinks and played games. Many different games for the kids to choose from. Pizza was very good compared what we had a few years ago. Best bet is to print or take your phone with you pull up coupons, you can get discounted pizza and coupons just for tokens to play. This is really a very... More

I have been bringing my kids here since the 90s. It was okay way back then, but I brought my son in the mid 2000s for a few years until he outgrew it (and tired of it never changing). We haven't been there for about 4 years until we went today for my 4-year-old daughter's birthday. Guess what? It's almost... More

This place is horrible. The staff is unenthusiastic and probably smokes pot on their lunch break. It was a disaster with every single table dirty--on a Thursday night. No hand sanitizer, crappy food. They don't even do shows like they used to. Just some flashing lights and music videos.

This is a really good place to take the kiddies, especially during the day on a weekday since you're less apt to run into birthday parties. All of the games are 1 token, which is nice and makes things easier for little kids. If you bring in coupons, you can get pretty decent deals on pizza and token purchases too... More

Good place for kids to play but pizza is horrible. What is wrong with tripadvisor that this shows up as #3 best restaurant in West Des Moines????
