New look, new games, fresh food, and ALL YOU CAN PLAY–these are some of our favorite things at the newly remodeled Chuck E. Cheese in McAllen, Texas, at the 3300 Expressway 83 location.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chuck E. Cheese. The opinions and text are all mine.
Our family had a blast at the Grand Re-Opening event at Chuck E. Cheese McAllen. It was fun for the whole family with live band, ribbon cutting ceremony, ticket giveaways, cake, prizes, and more.
Chuck E. Cheese in McAllen has been beautifully remodeled inside and out. I love the new look! There are almost a dozen new games and a light up dance floor where the hourly live show and birthday show takes place. It’s all so bright with a fresh and clean look.
Did you know Chuck E. Cheese’s pizzas are made from scratch daily? It’s not a challenge to have the kids stop playing games to eat, when they’re getting Chuck E. Cheese pizza! Even my husband, who is a little bit of a pizza snob, admits Chuck E. Cheese has GOOD pizza.
Our family all agrees on a standard pepperoni pizza, but if you’re more adventurous with your pizza, Chuck E. Cheese has you covered. Build your own pizza or select one of their specialty pizzas such as Supreme, BBQ Chicken, or Cali Alfredo. They even offer a gluten-free pizza!
The garden-fresh salad bar has over 30 items to choose from! My ever health conscious man was so happy to see this. While I was there for PIZZA, I had to admit, that salad looked amazing.
ALL YOU CAN PLAY!
Introducing the Chuck E. Play Bands and ALL YOU CAN PLAY! Raise your hand if you’ve had your child set their game card down while playing a game, and then walk away? I know; I’m not alone! There’s nothing that spoils the fun faster than when a child loses their game card. The new Play Bands are awesome! They are available for $7.99 and include $5.00 in Play Points. They are re-loadable and can be used on future visits.
How ALL YOU CAN PLAY works:
Whether you purchase a Play Band or load a Play Card, there are several deals to choose from starting at $10 with the purchase of a combo.
Purchase an amount of time between 30 and 120 minutes. Any game will activate the card or Play Band. Need to stop to eat? No problem! The passes can be paused one time at the kiosk. Then also resume play at the kiosk when you are ready to start again. Please note: ALL YOU CAN PLAY time is only valid for the date of purchase.
The option to add points instead of ALL YOU CAN PLAY time is also available. For younger kids that aren’t flying from game to game, points may still be the better value. I love having the option!
My kids played non-stop for an hour and a half and loved every minute.
Oh the loot of tickets that we collected after an hour and a half of play! It was so exciting. Even my teenagers still get excited to load their tickets into the machine. Truth be told, I still love it too!
The kids all pooled their tickets and agreed on the prizes! Who doesn’t love candy and Star Wars stickers?!
We do things as a family. It’s just how we roll. Sometimes our outings are geared more for the younger and sometimes for the teenagers, but we hang together. As we walked out the door, I loved hearing one of my teenagers say, “That was a lot of fun!” Chuck E. Cheese is where a kid can be a kid AND where a grown up can be a kid AGAIN!
Whether you have a birthday to celebrate or just want a fun night out, take the family to the newly remodeled McAllen location at 3300 Expressway 83 or check out a Chuck E. Cheese near you for ALL YOU CAN PLAY fun!

What an amazing place this sounds like. Living across the pond Chuck E Cheese is something I have only read a out but it always seems like such a. Fun restaurant.
Amber Myers says
We love the All You Can Play deal. That’s what my kids usually do when we go. We also enjoy the pizza there.
What a fantastic idea that Chuck E. Cheese has all you can play and eat! I love this deal as a Mom. We used to go there all the time when my son was little 🙂 Great memories.
I’m not aware of an all you can eat deal right now, but I could definitely go for that one too! 🙂
I haven’t been to Chuck E Cheese’s in years. I’ll have to take the grandkids one Saturday. I didn’t know you could get salads there.

My son wants me to take him to Chuck e Cheese. It has been a while since we have been but I do love all you can play pass. I’m just afraid that the smallest pass wouldn’t satisfy him. Maybe I’ll take him for the holidays as a special treat.
My kids all had there fill with an hour and a half. Recommend!
I love all of the new updates with Chuck E. Cheese. I can’t wait to bring my nieces and nephews.

I wish this place was still in our state. I was going to take the kiddos a few years ago but found out they were closed. It looks like so much fun!
Shannon Gauger says
What a super fun place for kids! We’ve been to parties here before and had a blast! They have great pizza!
Chef Dennis says
Wow! I’ve never been in Chuck E Cheese! This place sounds really fun to visit. All the new games and fresh food sounds exciting.

Si sad we don’t have Chuck E. Cheese near our area. Kids will definitely love this place.
Ruth I says
It must feel good to have that kid moment again. I am delighted they have reopened. Life is good isn’t it?

We have been to chuck e cheese so many times over the years. It’s such a great place to keep the kids entertained, especially during the fall & winter when it’s too cold to be outside.
Amber Killmon says
As many nightmares as I’ve had about Chuck-E-Cheese, I kind of miss it now. It was always amazing to see the huge Smiles on kids faces as they ran around
Oh no! I’ve found that taking some extra steps in preparation helps with the potential parent chaotic moments. I prefer to go early before the crowds. Also, I scout out the prize options and help them choose prizes, so it doesn’t take long. 🙂 Hope this helps!

We have always loved Chuck E Cheese. There has been one in every town where we have lived! Thank goodness!
Agnes Dela Cruz says
I am drawn to the salad bar station haha! Who wouldn’t love Chuck E Cheese, I would bring my teens there anytime.
Melanie Walsh says
Chuck E. Cheese is a family favorite! My kids love all of the games! With a few years in between my kids, finding one spot for all of them can be tricky. Thankfully, there’s fun for everyone…including me the skee ball obsessed mama!
