At Battlefield Lanes, the rumbling of rolling balls and clattering of pins fill the air as the alley’s flat-screen televisions keep score. On select nights, glow bowling transforms the facility with psychedelic colors set ablaze with black lights. To fuel orb-flinging arms, the alley’s snack bar dishes up pizza, popcorn, and hot dogs. After a nibble, guests can vary their competitive activities in the arcade room or at the fleet of billiards tables, where circling sharks munch on dropped pool cues.
Sharky's Billiards and Grill caters to billiards buffs with a plethora of Brunswick Gold Crown nine-foot pool tables and a menu of delectable eats. Under the ambient lights of the pool hall, players challenge each other to games of 8-ball, 9-ball, and stick-ball, an exciting and totally illegal fusion of billiards and baseball. Stay fresh during your two hours of play with a cheeseburger and fries ($6.50) or a platter of chips and salsa or cheese dip ($2), then knock back a cold bottled or draft beer ($2 for domestic, $3 for premium) to maintain laser-like focus during daring bank shots. Aside from showing off its top-of-the-line pocketed tables and laid-back atmosphere, Sharky's entertains customers with pumping music and karaoke parties.
Anchored in the Fontana Shopping Center, Magoo's has filled bellies and entertained the people attached to those bellies for nearly two decades. Every day of the week, lunch and dinner spreads prompt a constant procession of plates, which arrive at tables lugging half-pound burgers and country-fried steaks. After emerging victorious from their meal or a mozzarella-stick duel with a friend, diners celebrate with a drink from the drinks bar or a game of billiards on one of the restaurant's 30 felted battlegrounds. TVs flicker above with sports action, and during the week, music fills the air during karaoke nights or live performances.
Diners at Sandite Billiards and Grill devour tender steaks, third-pound burgers packed with 100 percent ground beef, and Southern comfort fare and play games on 18 pool tables, arcade machines, and foosball tables. The menu heralds the arrival of appetizers, such as the chili-cheese nachos or hot wings, both of which render fingers messy like high-fives from Jack Kerouac. Diners train their forks on protein-packed 12-ounce rib eyes and 10-ounce fillets swaddled in strips of bacon and served with starch sidecars of fried, baked, or hot potatoes and texas toast. A family-friendly billiard hall, patrons of all ages can pluck Viking, Predator, or Lucasi cues off the wall and direct clacking stripes and solids over blue-felted pool tables or into opponents’ drinks.
