Best Bowling Alley

TIE: Dart Bowl, The HighBall

We're spoiled for bowling alleys in Austin, Texas, and our options are lousy with personality. Who doesn't adore Dart Bowl, with its legendary truck-stop enchiladas and kitschy-cool decor? It's an Austin institution. And what's not to love about the HighBall, that Alamo Drafthouse step-sib, with its retro vibe, classy cocktails, and lounge-y atmosphere appealing to Rat Pack and Brat Packer alike? Both of these classic alleys are choice places to roll those gutter balls and mark it zero.
