We decided to eat at Dart Bowl while waiting for a lane. We sat down and waited....and waited....and waited. The waitress made no attempt to help us even as she made eye contact with us. Finally, after she started to wait on a table that came in several minutes (like 15 minutes) after us we decided to leave. After further observation, the waitress was only interested in helping customers who were her friends. We went to Dan's down the street and had a good burger. We returned and our lane was ready. When I told the person at the desk what happened, she gave me the manager's number and encouraged me to call him because there have been numerous complaints regarding the restaurant and its service.

As much as it is a bowling alley, it is also a very good restaurant with an impressive Austin heritage. First time there - granddaughter's birthday bowling party. The staff did a perfect job of hosting and coordinating the birthday event. The restaurant was an unexpected bonus. The owner stopped and talked with us, explained his business history and philosophy. Much of his staff has been with him for generations. You won't find better enchiladas!
