Very affordable bowling alley in north central Austin. Large bowling alley (20+ lanes) with small bar and cafe. I was here on a Friday evening and had about a 30 minute wait for a lane. Food is OK. Majority of the other bowlers were undergrads -- they get a student discount. Dart is pretty "vintage", so you'll find more trendy bowling alleys around Austin.

I love this old school bowling area with many regulars. The lanes are spot on and the employees are delightful. I love the blond bartender who is friendly and quick with drink orders. Don't miss out on the greasy, diner-type food in the restaurant. The enchiladas, cowboy omelette, and patty melt are memorable meals.

Dart Bowl is a really fun place to head to for a low-key gathering. It has a throwback kind of vibe of a place that realized in the 80s that it didn't have to be slick and fancy to provide a good time. The food station is your standard bowling alley fare, which means you're in for a greasy enough meal that you'll call it delicious no matter what.

I'm confused by other reviews that say this place is "cool" and "Austin" because I definitely don't see it that way. This is your standard, run down, kind of dirty bowling alley that I got my hopes up for. I was disappointed. The one thing they had going for them was they stock beer from Austin Beerworks.

The best and cheapest bowling alley in Austin. You can feel very Lebowski-ish drinking one of their super-cheap white russians while you bowl for less than $5/person per round. They've got a cafe and a bar that are inexpensive and great! They have Sunday night specials and UT/College specials that make it even cheaper to bowl!

Old school North Austin. The enchiladas are good, but I wouldn't show up for them. Good enough lanes, but it's a really relaxed atmosphere and very much part of the neighborhood. Made an appearance in Linklater's "Boyhood" if you didn't pick up on that.

This is a GREAT place to bowl on a Sunday night. We showed up on a slow Sunday night BEFORE 9PM and it was dead. Once 9PM hit, the place became packed. Pro tip- there's a cheap bowling special after 9PM on Sundays. However, the food was already closed when we arrived, though there were still beers.
