With plenty of parking, big rigs are welcome, according to Ava Bowles. Sit-down or to-go meals are available, and phone-in orders for pick-up can be made at 625-4995.Future plans include lunches to go, along with Saturday morning breakfasts, Bowles said.Patrons do not have to bowl in order to eat, either.The restaurant is operated by Joe Cappello and Bryan Moore.To start a new business right now is risky, but all four of us thought the time was right, Bowles said. Were just trying to find ways to get people in when we dont have bowling.Since news of the bowling alleys sale in November, Bowles said business dropped sharply.We must have had about 20 people tell us they thought we were closed, she said.
