The nachos are great. The pico de gallo is fresh and flavorful. The tacos and fajitas perfect proportions. The fish in the off the menu soft fish tacos was some of the most flavorful I've had so far.

We ate here a couple of time over our week's stay since it was next to the condo and convenient. The lobster enchilada's were really tasty. They also had good deserts too. Mark the owner is a nice guy and was keeping a close eye on everything. Good food and well run. We will be back.

Ate here for lunch three days in a row. Good Tex Mex. Watched World Cup soccer on their huge TV. Good food, good service, reasonable prices. No AC so a little warm in the afternoon.

What a treat to discover this place just minutes after arriving in Ambergris Caye - literal directed by a road sign indicating "a 3 minute walk"! This weary, hungry group of four travelers wanted nothing more than a bite of food, showers, and sleep. Instead what we got was a family style greeting from the staff and owner, Mark Eggers,... More

We're from Cincinnati where there is many a fine restaurant and love to cook and eat, so I was a bit worried when we first arrived at the island and nothing really stood out as our usual fare (read: I'm picky). We stopped here our first night, the place being close to pelican reef where we were staying, and I... More

I found this restaurant to have excellent food and the biggest portions on the island! It's a bit of a drive from town south but completely worth it. The owners, Marc and Leanne, are extremely friendly and take the time to make sure everything is ok with the meals and service. I had a couple of the chicken dishes during... More

We went to the Lone Star our first night on the island as it is in close proximity to where we were staying. Our server was very friendly and had jokes to share. I ordered the chicken quesadilla. It came with beans and rice. I liked the tomato infused rice, the refried beans were good, but the whole beans my... More

We were just out cruising in the golf cart when we stumbled upon the Lone Star Grill and since we are from Texas, we just had to stop in. Very nice, clean and quaint place.
