A man and woman were arrested and three others were injured after a brawl broke out at a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant in the Lincoln Park community, police said.

The fight broke out at about 7:10 p.m. Sunday at the children's restaurant on the 1800 block of West Fullerton Avenue in the Lathrop Homes neighborhood, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.

Police were called to the restaurant for a report of a large group of people fighting at the restaurant, Estrada said.

Why was I able to guess this was Chicago before clicking (know nothing about “Lincoln Park”).

There’s something about Chuck E. Cheeses that seems to encourage riots.

There’s an occasional riot at a McDonald’s when it’s invaded, but it apparently the regular patrons of Chuck E. Cheeses just like to riot as a regular thing. It helps ease the boredom, and maybe they can get away with not paying for all their food.

The only way I’d enter a Chuckie Cheese would be with a tactical squad wearing night vision immediately after cutting the power and sealing the exits.

There have been other reports of fights at Chuck E Cheese. Is there something about the people who go there, something about the atmosphere in Chuck E. Cheese that brings out the worst in these parents? What lessons are their kids learning to see their parents get in a fight????

It wasn't Chuck E. Cheese but Willie and Si seemed to control their behavior in a somewhat similar place on Duck Dynasty.

To paraphrase Simon and Garfunkle;

"Someone told me,
It's all happening at the zoo,
Called Chuck E. Cheeses..."

No you pay upon ordering.

It is a place for parties and family gatherings...OFTEN leaving out an estranged parent or family group. It is open to the public and therefore becomes a place for confrontation...usually over children.

Yes, children’s birthday parties seem to be special occasions for brawls.

I have a friend who is now a district manager after managing several CHUCK E CHEESE places in Northern VA. She has always said they are so very different. The staff she can hire and train, as well as the customers, vary greatly.

I spent many happy afternoons there 7-10 years ago with grandchildren and their friends. I was actually sorry when they outgrew the desire to go there.

You mean "parent". I doubt they know who the fathers are. (Unless they've been on Maurie.

Check out my #10. And note that there are a few comments where creepers seem genuinely unclear as to the reason for the brawling.
So yeah, warn others here in any way you can that a Chuckee Cheese may not be a safe place to take your nephew.
Check out the threads on white people getting beaten up for walking/driving/living while white.
I think FR is past the “Oh dear. John Derbyshire made some frightful comments in his article ‘The Talk.’ We’ll have to let him go ...” National Review.

Yes, I think it depends on the location. And even then, you might not get more than one riot a year—and 364 days that don’t make the news.

Still, they’ve made the news more than a few times.

You just had to see “Chuck E. Cheese” to know what the situation was. Doesn’t matter if it’s Chicago or Salt Lake City.

Chuck E. Cheese = birfday party with estranged parents and homies of both of them show up looking for an excuse.

I’m not aware of any problems occurring at our local store. Next door neighbor has worked there 10 years. Like someone else said — they vary a lot - both staff and customers.

I think some UFC fighters should be sponsored by Chuck E Cheese.
