|Absolutley aweful bowling alley. The staff is uncaring and and the place is filthy. Always very smoky, my wife smokes and its too much for her. I dont think they have air cleaners to filter the air. The bathrooms are continuously dirty, not sure how oftern they are cleaned. The ball returns are often not working properly. We paid for a lane and spent at least 5 times going back to the desk letting them know that the ball return was not working which caused us not to be able to play. The counter kept ticking down our minutes. When i told the "manager" that they owe us time that we had paid for but not able to play because of the broken/unrelieable ball returns i was just ignored. This place has gone way south in terms of customer service and enjoyment. I guess my family and the two families we bowl with will be giving our money to another alley instead. I highly reccomend staying away from this bowling alley.|

|Staff has as a whole been friendly and they do offer free senior bowling for 2 hours on Friday. However, the smoking odor-still allowed-is overpowering and bathrooms are really filthy (strong urine odors and dirty). Older place but could be cleaned up-a lot|

|I took my kids on june 1st..walked in and walked right out! I had signed up on the kids bowl for free website. like i said I took the kids and left, the smoke was tooooo much to handle. I have since then changed my passes from the kids bowl free to Oak Hills Lane instead..Way BETTER..NO SMOKING ALLOWED!!|

|The smoking is overpowering, even during the day. I took my boys for two games at 11am and left with a migrane there was so much cigarette stink in the air. The staff is always friendly and my kids love it, the smell is my only complaint (but it's a huge one!).

|Arrived and put our name on the waiting list. Counted 20+ lanes open. Waited over an hour before leaving. Asked several times if we could just have one of the many many lanes open. The snippy response was that they were reserving lanes for service industry workers. Lanes stayed about 20 open the entire time we were there. Always bad attitudes at the counter. Place seems to be run by high school kids for high school kids. Ball gets stuck repeatedly and just overall a horrible place to go. We bowl Weekly and the service and atmosphere never got any better. Now we give our money to University Bowl every week.|

|Tournaments are a joke, amateurs don't have
a chance with money making high rollers.
It's not about promoting bowling but promoting
putting money in your pockets.|

|This place is great. I come here all time with my friends. I do agree with the shoes/shoe sizes. They always seem to run out of the size you need. All in all, my friends and I enjoy the time we spend here.|

|I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the service here. I clebrated my daughter's birhtday here on 1 November 2008 and the service was exceptional. My hostess was the greatest. It was so great that a friend of mine scheduled her 10 yr old daughter's party there. But like everything in life there are good moments and bad. Her hostess was horrible, but after much complaining she was removed as hostess and my original hostess took her place. The kids were to young to notice anything was wrong and they had a ball. They played endlessly. I highly recommed the place!|

|Okay, first of all, the place is under new management, so it's a lot better now. Even with that in mind, I have no idea how some people were spending "too much" on games. They have great deals, like $2.00 Tuesdays per game per person, and my only complaint is the smoky environment.
As for bringing children, I don't think it's too terrible (and to the person who saw GGW ads, I have no clue when she was there, as they are always showing sports games. Always. And GGW ads have NEVER been played on ESPN, so I think she was inflating her argument as a typical mom wanting to make others hate a place she had a bad experience would do, and had to choose how best to make it seem like a downer.
Fun place, not too expensive, just go there to bowl. If you go there to buy all kinds of food, it's like buying food at a theme park, of course you're going to pay higher prices...
If you like beer on tap, they sell pitchers for $7.00 so again, call them, find out their specials, and go bowl. You don't HAVE to bowl on Saturday night, the busiest night of the week anyway (you'll have the longest wait, especially if your party is bigger.
Use common sense and like most things in life, you'll be the better for it! =)|

|I just wanted to let you know that the Bandera Bowl is under new ownership and is in Great Shape! Smoking is limited to the top area and not near the lanes...just had an event there and it was a lot of fun! Just an FYI!|

|If you have kids, stay away from this place. Full of smoke. Most of the lanes doesn't work properly. I have been over charged twice.|

|I recently went with some friends and had to go to the front desk numerous times because of problems with the lanes. The bowling balls were not organized and could not find the appropriate balls. They were out a majority of the size shoes and offered some nasty shoes that were falling apart to me in the next size up. I went on Saturday night and the DJ that was there was rude and played songs that put me to sleep. No wonder there was nobody there!|

| I went with 11 of my friends and got POOR service, not only were the people at the front rude but they were slow they told us there was a 2 hour wait so we waited and played some pool well we decided to check and see if any lanes were open and half of them were! Why were we waiting I dunno maybe because the people their are lazy. Oh and they had GIRLS GONE WILD stuff on all the TV's and there was kids there, I am sorry but I would never want my small child to see that at a "FAMILY FUN PLACE" were to busy chit chatting with each other to realize what was on tv and to busy to talk to the customers. Once we all paid for our stuff my husband was waiting to get his ID back and the guy just slammed his ID down and turned away. I use to love the place but with these people I WILL NEVER go back

|Bandera Bowl prices per bowling game is very expensive. You cannot afford to take a family for bowling fun like on Saturday or Sunday. It ranges like at $50.00.|
