Yes its in don carter lanes/shooters bar.   They have many drfs and next day drfs.  For some reason if they're sold out they will print you the tracks you need from drf.  Ive never been charged in those rare cases.  I usually always have it printed or now bring a tablet.  They have main area seating, bar area seating, and yesterday I discovered the upstairs which was my favorite.  Ive been there hundreds of times and never went up there?   Not sure if bartender up there on weekdays?  Yesterday was able to get my pepsis from him rather than going downstairs.  Which was nice.

The negative of rockford are the waitresses.  One in particular, a short haired blonde.  She will never help you and if you try to order from the main bar, and she is back there, she still wont help.  I recommend ordering from bowling alley side because its the same kitchen.  And I give the food a 6/10 due to inconsistency.  I once ordered garlic parmesan wings and they put it on top of buffalo sauce.  Whoever did it thinks all wings are buffalo and then the other sauces go on top.  Now  I usually bring in a jimmy johns sandwich and buy my pepsis there.

 I have been to many otbs but only once to Rockford since it moved to don carter lanes.  I didn't know there was na upstairs.  I may try going there again. The last time I went it was very busy.  You'd think they could find a better place .  It seems like they have lots of players.

It empties out around 4.  If you play the west coast or night tracks you will be ok.  If you are an east coast player you may want to bring a jacket to put over your chair.  The old location had more seating and with the closing of s beloit and no adw it adds to crowds.
