Gamers get ready. You’ll soon have a place to exercise your arcade geek muscles on James Island.

Frankie Biggs at 1175 Folly Road has been undergoing a major transformation over the past few months. Acquiring a deserted mattress store next store, owners Frank Clyburn and Tony Zarimba have expanded to nearly 5,000-square-foot in order to create a gaming super center (think Dave & Buster’s). Remodeled and decked out, the newly dubbed Max & Henry’s is flush with pool tables, skee ball, ping pong, foosball, darts, air hockey tables, racing games, and Golden Tee golf.

Half of the space is devoted to all things gaming while the other half is a full-service sports bar and grill serving burgers, wings, and pizza along with all the sports you can stand to watch on numerous flat-screens. Clyburn and Zarimba have been working hard to turn Frankie Biggs into Max & Henry’s, Max being Tony’s 7-year-old son and Henry being Frank’s one-year-old son. After selling J. Paulz in December, Tony had been looking into various ventures until he decided to team up with Frank to convert Biggs into a gaming palace.

Max & Henry’s plans to open the sports bar and grill side this weekend to get the staff acclimated to their new work environment. Charleston’s new eat and play hot spot will get into full swing in a couple weeks.
