Dining With Monkeys: Billy Hardwick's All Star Lanes | Restaurants
The Greenberg Clan has been on a bit of a bowling streak. In the last month or so, we've had a couple of family bowling days out at the Cordova Lanes. On our last visit, my sister said we should try Billy Hardwick's next because they do Cosmic Bowling and "they have good food." (We haven't eaten at the Cordova Lanes.)
We couldn't keep the kids up late enough for Cosmic Bowling which starts at 9pm, so we opted to go for dinner. The menu is pretty basic--burgers, hot dogs, pizza, and so on. There isn't a specific seating area for food--there's a full bar where adults can eat, but no kids allowed. However, there are plenty of seats by the lanes.
Team Oster was the first to arrive, so we put in our order for Billy burgers all around. The woman said it would take about 15 minutes and it did.
I ordered four burgers, two fries to share, and some "homemade chicken noodle soup" for Warren. The monkeys (Satchel, 9, and Jiro, 7) complained about having to share fries, but I held fast. Our total was $22, which isn't too bad, but included no drinks. I made the kids get water from the cooler, and I ordered a beer at the bar.
The burgers were big and juicy. Overall, I'd say they were pretty good. Would I make a special trip for one? No.
