Do you guys think that D & B or Jillians would ever open a Birmingham location? I know one would do very well here,no doubt about it. What are possible locations for a D & B or Jillians? Dave & Busters a lot of times are in suburban locations, so I think that it would be ideal for it to be either at the former Ralph & Kacoos location on 280, somewhere near the Galleria. Jillians tend to go closer to the inner cities, so I thinkg one could go anywhere on the Southside(preferrably Lakeview or near the future RR Park in Midtown), or in downtown Homewood. What do you guys think?

I dunno. I don't like chain restaurants, particularly when we have so many really good locally owned places.

With several colleges and a large number of young professionals, I would think Birmingham would be a prime location for a D&B's. The idea of the old Ralph and Kacoo's is great! You should suggest it to them...and get a lot of other people to suggest it, too. Dave & Buster’s – Eat, Drink, Play – Contact Us

I don't know anything about Jillian's, but it looks like a good fit, too.

Yeah, I think I will do that...heck, people in Huntsville petition for a lot of things that they want there, so we can do the same. I will get some people to suggest one for Birmingham. Either would be a perfect fit for Birmingham!!

Didn't you already write this?

D and B is a rip-off. I didn't know they managed to make their way out here already.
