Best Bowling Alley 

WINNER: Bowl & Barrel

17619 La Cantera Pkwy., Suite 102 •(210) 920-1102

> Bowling a few frames isn't a stressful experience, but rarely is it as cushy as it is at Bowl & Barrel. To call the far North Side lanes a mere "bowling alley" doesn't do them justice. The food and drink — furnished by The General Public next door ­— trumps the plasti-cheese nachos and reheated pepperoni slices that most alleys offer. It's hard to feel too bad about rolling two gutter balls in a row when you have fried quail, charcuterie boards and an Old Fashioned back at the table. A couple things to keep in mind: The lanes become 18-and-up after 7 p.m., unless the kiddos have an adult with them. And it's not a bad idea to call ahead to reserve your lane in advance — especially on weekends when they get booked fast.
