Best Save Of An Austin Tradition

Dart Bowl Enchiladas

For over 27 years, the Dart Bowl Steakhouse near the corner of Burnet and Anderson welcomed hungry bowlers and non-bowlers alike. Tops on the menu were the famous enchiladas covered with chili con carne and two eggs sunny side up. Rising real estate values and operating costs shut the old bowling alley down last year, but the restaurant found a new home at the Capital Bowl location. Butch Martinets, who also owns the cafés at Westgate and Highland bowling alleys, should also be in the running for Best Boss in Austin. Three of his 25 employees have been with him for over 24 years, and several others have worked in his small chain of bowling alley cafes for over 10 years. All of the employees from the old location moved with him.
