A restaurant inside a bowling alley is different from a bowling alley that serves food. All bowling alleys serve food – default food. But to choose to locate your labor of love – and let’s face it, personally-run restaurants are labors of love (or love of labor), in a bowling alley shows a level of imaginative commitment that is admirable.
Sandwiches are the ultimate bowling food. Sandwich in one hand, ten-pounder in the other, put a little action on it. And what a soundtrack.
Call us meat ‘n cheese cause we’re on a roll.
Neal’s Sandwich Shop was located inside an unknown bowling alley in Wilmington. Ice cream, malts, and sundaes were also available. From the LAPL photo archive. Circa 1940.
