I've spent a couple of hours at the Denton location, and it sounds as though it's fairly similar to the one in Richardson in terms of the spread of the games.
Not really much to add - it's an arcade, they have older (and newer) machines, and it was fun.

Dallas is experiencing a renaissance of arcades opening lately. I've been to 6 in the last 3 weeks including Free Play in Richardson and in Denton. The Richardson location sells food, but they both have a nice selection of drinks and beers. I'm not even done, I've still got to make it to the Texas Pinball Museum, Cidercade, Versus, Corky's and there's even a few more. I think Dallas is starting to be a good place for retro gaming tourism (if there is such a thing). If someone came here for the "Let's Play Gaming Expo" in August you'd get to come to a great con and could hop around to all these arcades. Then there is the Texas Pinball Festival in March which is shaping up to be the largest festival dedicated to Pinball anywhere. I don't claim to be up on arcades all over the country or anything, but I've never heard of another city with quite this much gaming available so readily.
Here's a post that I made in the "What have you actually played thread" that both me and Eltigro post in with all the games that I played just this week.
Baby Pac Man 35
Donkey Kong 77
Donkey Kong Jr 20
Dragon's Lair 9
Granny and the Gators 27
Jump Coaster 15
Satan's Hollow 9
Star Wars 22
Star wars Trilogy 3
Track & Field 3
Zoo Keeper 9
Most of these games were played on original machines. I only did emulation for Donkey Kong and Jump Coaster this week.
I went to 4 different arcade type places this week and played a ton of stuff. Most of the arcade games were played at Regeneration and Free Play in Richardson (the same place Eltigro went not too long ago). It was awesome.
Black Knight Sword of Rage
Royal Guard (em)
Total Nuclear Annihilation
