  • Jorge SThe Burger is a Lie. The meat is disgusting, everything else, the fries, bun and onions are very good, but the meat ruins everything, must be very low quality meat.

  • Derek 🐐🐙 HuntenHaven't bowled here, but the bartenders are awesome! Lindsey makes the blueberry tea honey herself 😋

    55555 by Derek 🐐🐙 Hunten

  • Ray L.The staff is super nice, and if you bowl you hand in your names and shoe sizes on a slip for quick start. If hungry, the burger is delicious and there's a great craft beer selection.

    55555 by Ray L.

  • Lauren StrehlowAlways fun to bowl, can be a bit crowded. Sit at the bar for a snack. Soggy fries but fits with bowling alley expectations.

    55555 by Lauren Strehlow

  • Rose J.Pricey but fun. I'm also not a fan of the location.

    55555 by Rose J.

  • Will B.A very chill, though less than exceptional brunch spot. Still, the Croquet Madame, with the salty ham, thick hollandaise sauce, and Dijon mustard is a great choice

    55555 by Will B.

  • Brian LongtinMaybe the tastiest fried chicken I've had in the city is at a bowling alley? Legit burger threat too? Who even needs to bowl?

    55555 by Brian Longtin

  • Adrian B.Come here for the Mission Burger and stay for bowling. No, seriously. The burger and fries are possibly the best in the city. This place is my go-to for burgers and vodka martinis.

    55555 by Adrian B.

  • Adrian B.Quite possibly the best burger and fries in the city. My go-to for a burger and vodka martinis. Sit upstairs near the railing for great people watching.

  • EaterLucky Peach Managing Editor Rachel Khong: "Reasons why this burger is the best: the patty is granulated, the buns have their tops cut off to perfect bun-to-ratio size."

    55555 by Eater

  • EaterIt's not all bowling and Mission burgers at Mission Bowling Club. The bar up front means serious business with nine beers on tap, perfect Manhattans and the TBD with mezcal and jalapeno jam.

  • ThrillistIn between knocking down pins, knock back some drafts of Russian River & the infamous Mission Burger (a 1/2-lb of beef that's hard-fried in beef fat w/ caramelized onion, Monterey jack & caper aioli).

    55555 by Thrillist

  • Tasting TableYou can't go wrong with the Mission Burger. It's a righteous, juicy burger, almost too rich, generously anointed with caper aioli and Monterey Jack.
