Austin's iconic Dart Bowl to close Friday after COVID slowdown hurts business

The Austin institution Dart Bowl, a bowling alley also famous for its enchiladas, will close permanently due to a COVID-related slowdown in business, the owners announced on Facebook.




Around for 62 years, Dart Bowl also appears in a number of notable films and TV series. A statement from the business says:

"Familiar to viewers of the Richard Linklater movie, Boyhood, and the Friday Night Lights series which used it as a filming location, the Dart Bowl was founded in 1958 by Donovan's grandfather, Harry Peterson, who was joined in partnership about ten years later by Jerry and Betty Ray. Betty and her son, King Ray, remain involved in ownership and management of the company's three bowling alleys with John Donovan and his wife, Jacy."
