stuck/stripped crank bolt

Hey there, I have a fixed gear crankset on my bike and i got 4 of the 5 bolts out without issue but when i went to remove the fifth the bugger would not come out and i ended up stripping the slotted back side out and the more i tried the worse it got, i think when the shop initially installed it they might have cross threaded it and thats why i'm having issues. but long story short does anyone have a solution to this that doesnt involve drilling the whole bolt out?
thanks ahead of time for the help.

i meant chainring bolt not crank bolt, sorry for any confusion

Drill it. The bolts are soft so drilling is easy.
