    When you get a look at this place, you’ll know that gourmet burgers have no business here. But if you’re hungry and not in the mood for the taco truck outside, you won’t be unhappy with the hamburger. Read more

    This place is not hip, but I won't hold that against them. The terrible service, waiting over an hour even though they had open lanes, and shoddy equipment I will hold against them! Don't bowl here.

    Great old-school bowling alley that also sells drinks. Perfect for neighborhood families & groups of 20-somethings, this place is just like Mark and Maple Lanes used to be. Cheap, too. Get the fries!

    Go out and bowl! This is an old school spot right out of the post-disco era. There's also a bar, of course, and a little arcade area in the back if you get tired of all the heavy lifting. Read more

    When bowling, try to stay focused in spite of both the awesome (vintage) and awful (current) music videos being played on the big screens.

    There was a time, long, long ago when Brooklyn was full of bowling alleys. Now only a few remain and this one, in the same spot since 1958, is the real thing.

    Ask for the Pete's Special. It comes in green, red, and purple. You can get rainbow too, but it ends up being purple. Also: you will end up very drunk and will feel insane, in a good way
