Going there is one of my favorite things to do. It is old school but that is the charm of it. They have crinkle cut french fries and beer to munch on while you attempt to bowl. I go there for kid's birthday parties and for an activity with my friends.

Keep your eyes open Raleigh, this once great bowling center and longtime Raleigh establishment will be making a dramatic comeback very soon. This was once THEE place to bowl in Raleigh and will be again.

Pros: Tradition, Location, Opportuntity

Cons: Current condition

This is a great place to go if you want good old fashioned bowling, cheap beer, and french fries. If you want auto-scoring and fancy video displays, you can go pay the ridiculous prices at AMF, where I doubt that the food is much better. I like the fries, I like the canned beer, and I don't mind keeping score with the little Putt Putt pencils. The price is also much much better than the fancy places-- I have no idea how people bring their families to those places (at a local AMF, the first game with my pre-school son would cost $20, once you figure in shoes. Thereafter $11. Obscene. Might as well take him out for a gourmeet meal.) Western Lanes is about half that, and your kids can learn some advanced math skills filling out the scorecard. Just awesome.

Pros: Real bowling alley, cheap beer, good fries, little pencils with no erasers

Cons: Nothing, unless you want something expensive and fancy

.

The lanes are dry and no auto scoring. And they have to little parking with a big hole that scraps your car when you drive into the parking lot. And the food is sub standard. I just think this is the worst center in all of raleigh.

Pros: you can leave quickly

Cons: dry lanes bad food little parking

the price is quite high here, yet the environment is not good enough to reasonize this price. even with discounts for NCSU students, the price's still too high.

They DO NOT come like this any more. No hi-tech lighting/scoreboards. No wild music to match the carpeting. This is an older, darker (lighting/decor) bowling alley. If you want atmosphere, this alley has it!! It is my favorite to go to when I want to bowl like the pros...
