Allow us to quote ourselves. The Dart Bowl is a bowling alley to a lot of people but to us it’s an old-school Austin snack bar.
We don’t bowl but we do eat. It’s the kind of snack bar where they cut their own French fries and hand roll some of the finest Tex Mex enchiladas in town.
It’s fun to get a hot-metal plate of food and set back and watch the folks bowl: Old timers in skin tight Wranglers and ostrich skin boots they bought in the 60’s, snotty punks being loud and acting dumb, a gaggle of ladies who’re all cop’s wives enjoying a night away from law enforcement, McCallum High School kids from across the street.
It’s a diverse group.
