Bowl America is a great place for some bowling fun and surprisingly awesome food! The lanes are very cool in a retro kind of way and the equipment works just fine. But it is those wonderful ladies in the snack bar who make it magical!!! The nachos are fantastic (best I've ever had, and I've tried a lot). And it wasn't just me, because picky kids in our group heartily agreed. The french fries were fantastic and they have three types from which to choose. The pizza looked great, but we didn't have room for it. Next time, perhaps? And a great selection of beer on tap. They card for real, even if you have grey hair, and issue a wrist band if you pass muster. So take your ID and be glad to know that your teenage kids will not be able to drink there. Ever. I had the Stella. Two, actually. Both delicious.
Bowl America is good for classic American bowling with the sound of balls and machinery, vast expanse of carpet, accidentally hip rental shoes, etc. Think Fred Flintstone, and if you're old like me, the bowling birthday party that everyone wanted. It was very affordable and the lanes and vintage equipment are well maintained. But the awesome snack bar puts this place OVER THE TOP!
