Blanco Bowling Club Café

310 Fourth St., Blanco, TX - (830) 833-4416
Pies are spectacular, with meringue tops that rise three times as high as the filling they top. And the fillings themselves are delicious. Coconut pie has an indescribably creamy flavor, accented by little bits of toasty coconut scattered across the top of the meringue. Fudge pie is dense, rich, and super-chocolaty. If you are a pie fancier, put this Blanco bowling alley on your must-eat list. Meringue pies get no better than this.

The cinnamon buns are a favorite among the regulars who come to the Bowling Alley for breakfast and conversation every morning.

Opened in 1947, the Bowling Alley was privately owned until the townsfolk bought it in 1967 and made it into a community center, gathering place, and favorite cafe.

Blanco has no fine-dining restaurant, but for those in search of roadfood and local color, this restaurant and this small town are treasures.
