This place is always active. Fine asian women for everybody. From the lanes to the tables. I like how they opened up that back room. Keep it open please! Cheap drinks! I always leave faaaaded! I always see someone I know there and the bartenders know whats up! Don’t touch the juke box, thats my jam right there!

This is a great bowling alley. games are only a doller each before 3 PM. and there are many leauges for you to choose. The food is Amazing. Especially there chicken wings/strips. the lanes are very nice and it was recently renovated. i bowl here on saturday and wednesday and occasianl tournouments. The staff is great, they are all nice and funny at times. The house balls are in better shape then a lot of other alleys.the arcade is pretty fun too with pinball tournoments and pool. also a new bathroom was built and it looks AMAZING. Its also great for late night partying. I recomend this alley for everybody who loves to bowl, and anybody who wants to try it out. This is where i started bowling and always will.

If you are having problems with an employee a better option than posting anyomous rantings would be to address the problem with the manager, John Balla.

friendly service and better attitudes at this place. never understood why bad attitudes were allowed to continue to service us, good days are ahead (i hope)

Can I just say that in the past 2 weeks that we have been bowling, our regular waitress Krissy hasnt been at work. I inquired in the bar and found out that she had been fired. Bad bad move management. We have bowling here for the past 3 years and have made many great friends. We would arrive and Krissy would be right there with our pitcher. We have decided to not bowl here any longer. We will finish out the 2 weeks of the winter league but won’t be back.

I love the place!!! Great atmosphere although there are some interesting characters….went outside and ran into a strange filipino kat (who hapopens to be playin pool there at least every other day).. with a mustache…accused me of throwing cell phones and ACORNS at him!! I think he needs a little attention.

The old guy there rips u off!!! This is how it went i got there with 3 other friends we all got 3 games each. we end up only playing 2 each and the machine turn off, so i went to tell the old guy and he said we all played 3 games and printed out the scores… and he said the machine don’t lie then i was like what ever so i go out side for a smoke and i come back in and i see people were getting set up for there league games on the lanes i was playing ( so im guessing thats hiw way of kicking us out)…. SO ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THE OLD MAN THAT WORKS THERE IS A THIEF!

I bowled a tournament here…. it was also my first time visiting & its was sad to see how beaten up it was… i hated their little step b/w bowler’s area & the approach.. bad lighting… lanes s*cked… that place screams out “UPGRADE!”
i just went there cause of the tournament… dont think i’ll ever go there again… the staff that day were kind of cocky… but we told them off… “our center is waaaay better than yours!” BPL #274

this place is cool

Comment Date: 10/30/2007 Name: Schitz
It’s basically what you’d expect from a bowling alley in Mira Mesa. Old and run down, but still functional. Wednesday to Sunday the prices s*ck.. Monday and Tuesday the place is too crowded. Slightly worse than Kerny Mesa, but at least it’s not Poway.

Comment Date: 10/26/2007 Name: Pissed Off
Thanks for removing your special rates during the wildfires. You guys s*ck. I’m finding a new bowling alley.

Comment Date: 9/30/2007 Name: Mike
Yea I bowl there everyday after school. 1$ a game. You can’t beat that. Their employes are nice as hell. Food is good. Managers are nice. Yes, I do gotta admit, their pin re-setters do need an update. but otherwise everything is good there.

Comment Date: 8/24/2007 Name: dianne
bowling there is fun. but i just need to see one of my westview friend. that work or worked there.

Comment Date: 6/22/2007 Name: holy moly
almost every post on here says somthing negative about the employees thats sad i work here. i have seen more rude customers than i ever care to in my life working here, and i’m not saying that employees don’t get rude too, they do, but come on its a bowling alley which means people are coming there to have a good time. if somones rude to you flip it on them and be the nicest person back and i gurantee you that, that person won’t be rude to you again. and a simple please and thank you go along way. remember that old saying treat others how you want to be treated

Comment Date: 6/19/2007 Name: Ricky
It’s true that at least some of the people working here seem mad about something. They remind me of the characters in the “Clerks” movies. On my first visit everyone acted like I had interrupted their day by wanting to bowl there. Any questions I had were “tolerated” with a smirk and a patronizing answer. The score keeper / pin setter on the lane I got was broken.
On my second visit, different people were working the desk, and they were much friendlier. The lane actually worked so the whole experience was much better. I guess it depends on who’s working on the day you go.

Comment Date: 4/10/2007 Name: motherofchildontheirbowlingleagueforyears
this lane does not accept My Coke Rewards coupons and the person who answered the phone was rude and obnoxious. thinking of changing bowling alleys and taking our business elsewhere.

Comment Date: 4/8/2007 Name: Lynn
It was pretty good. The people there weren’t rude but they weren’t nice either but they do a very good job. They come in about a minute if your bowling ball gets stuck or something. The food is good. I had pizza but the slices are super small if you get a whole box.

Comment Date: 3/26/2007 Name: julianne
It was my first time at this location and was very different than other bowling locations. I went to the desk to play a game and the old man behind the counter was awfully rude to me. He’s like ” go over there.” I was like ooookkkkkk. then the food was ehh and the beer tasted so cheap. like dirt. I am never going there again.

Comment Date: 2/19/2007 Name: CursedStigmata
Man, alot of these people are mean. I work there, and have been going there for about since I was like 6, so for 10 years now, and it is not that bad. It is fun, and if you guys all have a problem with it then don’t go. Don’t believe what these people say. If you are not rude to us, then we will not be rude to you

Comment Date: 2/7/2007 Name: Weekday Bowler
Recently added new screens, pinsetters. New lane surfaces in the last year.
The staff (esp. John) take the time to get to know the regulars, offer pointers, etc.
Near a HS, but things are kept in pretty good control even when lots of kids are there.

Comment Date: 1/12/2007 Name: JONNY CHIMPO 420
The Philipino lady that cooks the food is the {best}! I have known her for years! Big ups to Grandma…..the old fart at the desk needs a manpon!

the employees are {deleted by moderator}. and it wouldn’t be worth your time, but drunken bowling is pretty fun.

Comment Date: 11/4/2006 Name: lawrencetheloverinyou
food s*cks , beer was flat , no women , rude , ugly , mean , obese employees , basically the place s*cks

Comment Date: 9/14/2006 Name: FREQUENT CUSTOMER
Food is pretty good.. alright prices on food but pitchers are a scam at 8 dollars a pitcher. Old man with glasses is an a**hole. Turned of cable reception on bigscreen because we became regular customers. He needs a beer {edited}.
PS. Retire and hang it up its not our fault that your old ugly and lonely….

It’s pretty cool, but i know what they’re mad about… the gangsters who often come there – that wreck the lanes.

It was so good!!! The lanes were plentiful and the food was good too!! The arcade was so sick!! I will always go to the Mira Mesa Bowl!!

Comment Date: 5/16/2004 Name: bowling man
The people who work there are extremely angry….I don’t think they were held as babies. One of the waitresses threw a beer at me….In other words I felt right at home.

Comment Date: 4/30/2004 Name: Anonymous
Bait and switch on the half-price beer pitchers. Lanes are your typical 1970’s un-renovated alley variety. Good for some semi drunken bowling, but it seems that the people there all have something to be mad about. Of course, if I worked there, I’d probably take it out on my customers too.

Comment Date: 4/30/2004 Name: Chad Daddy
The bowling alley is old and the people who work there are even older. They are pissed off about something. I have never gotten good service there. Only thing going is the drink prices.

Comment Date: 4/12/2004 Name: Anonymous
Lanes and pinsetters in very bad shape. Old and ugly bowling center. It needs one thing, a wrecking ball!!!!!

Comment Date: 2/16/2004 Name: Anonymous
Great lanes and decent prices. With decent beer on draft it’s a great place for the family or that company outing.
