“FUN!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Great fun! The animated figures on the screen, when bowling, are funny. Music isn't too crazy or too loud.There is a terrific choice of food and it is delicious. Bathrooms are clean, workers are pleasant. GREAT specials on games.

“Great Fun, and Surprisingly Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I'm not the biggest bowling fanatic, but once in a while my friends and I will venture to this spot for some beer and healthy competition. Chako's is clean, the staff is friendly, and it has a great dive-y bar in the back if you want to get away from the lanes for a while (21 and over only). The thing that really astonishes me every time is how good the food is. Granted, it's not gourmet or anything, but for munchies/bar food, everything is really tasty. Their wings in particular are fantastic.

“Fun place - great bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012

I don't go bowling very often but I had a great time here. The bar staff was very inviting and there was a band that played later on in the night. Will definitely come back.

“Truly wheelchair accessible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

We bowl here regularly with my son, who uses a wheelchair. The staff is friendly, the building is accessible, and the lanes are up-to-date, too. This is the best bowling alley in Wyoming Valley for sure!
