YUM....

Bowling Alley Food
February 2008

My iTunes: Call It Life by Amy Seeley

I had to get this shot. The prices have changed a lot since I was a kid but the food is the same. The food served at bowling alleys is a part of the experience of going bowling. I regret not getting one shot though...the french fries. They serve them in those baskets. I don't know where else I would ever order a basket of fries!

And by the way, in case you didn't think so, my "YUM" title is completely sarcastic...other than the fries! :)

What? You mean you didn't eat three chili cheese dogs while you were there? what's wrong with you, child!?

I love these throwback menus. Excellent thinking to capture it here. The homegrown abbreviations are a lot of the fun. Chilichez? I'm going to ask the local Tex-Mex places if they have that!

I would have been all over that Bratwurst.

so cute and isn't it the truth amazing what we feed ourselves in a place like that not to mention the added bonus of the smoke in the place! I cannot believe we still allow smoking in our bowling alley in Idaho but we do....

Yikes. Your blog is like therapy. I think I suppressed my memories of the bowling LEAGUE (can you believe it?) I participated in back in the day. And I do remember the food. But what I remember more are the drinks we smuggled in. ;-) Well, they must have helped as we won!

I was wondering... all of these bowling alley shots are fantastic!

The only other place we got a basket-o-fries was at the beach. Nothing like sandy fries, I always say.
This is a great shot.

Wow, the bowling alleys here serve really different food from where ever you were in Kentucky! You wouldn't see anything with "rib-eye" in the title on a menu at a bowling alley in Philly!

Bowling food...what a rip off ;)

Oh my goodness, this food is so cheap! At the bowling alley near us it is three times the price AN disgusting!!

Anna said...

Everything in London is 3X the cost! Hehehehe.

That's a great sight! We have a place called the Shake Pit that has a similar menu...not quite the variety, but when you want a good greasy, juicy wonderful cheeseburger, that's where you go. It isn't "fast food."

I feel my arteries clogging just reading the menu, though I have to admit to enjoying some of the choices sometimes.

My oldest daughter, when she was about 11, coined the term "gas station food" for what could be bought at a convenience store gas station. Corn dogs, nachos, popcorn, etc., were a "must have" on any road trip. Both girls preferred this fare to the usual fast food places. It's a kid thing.

As for the photo: this is the kind of photo I love because it will be so interesting to your children 20 years from now as the ooh and ah over how "cheap" the food was back in the day.
