Want to thank Sally so much for her excellent service last night. Very friendly. And all supporting staff as well. We enjoyed both our meals very much and can easily say this is the best lone star we have been to in NZ so far.

Had a night out in Rotorua with friends and decided to go and eat something big and good. If you like your food big, Lone Star is a very good option. More than decent sized meals, quite a good selection of options. I had a steak with eggs and mushrooms etc, was yummy. My friends had a pork dish and... More

The mushroom sauce was way floury and I actually hated it however the steak was cooked nicely. I waited 20 mins just for... More

The kids got the best deal and food! Their food came quick, was hot and what you expect for a kids meal. My mum got the 'big bird' - the chicken was rancid and the cabbage tasted off! I got the honky tonk chicken and it was burnt, not charcoal or flame grilled like they say, burnt! Coleslaw was brown... More

We went here for a family members birthday dinner. Was disappointed with a few things. First it took over an hour to receive our entrée and when we did the chicken pieces where cold, when we received the mains another hour later the steaks come out with uncooked mushrooms and the potato bake was once again cold. Dessert wasn't great... More
