Lone Star was right across the street from our hotel so we went over for a snack of a plate of beef nachos on our first afternoon in the area. They were only mediocre. After talking to some other people who also had mediocre food there we decided to cut our losses and not return,

Loved this restaurant, it was right across the street from where I was staying and I ate here 3 times during my week stay. Very relaxed and casual, the bartender is very creative with his drinks, and always something on the tv for entertainment for the sport lovers.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for the Lone Star Alison K. Jaime is a great bartender and is happy to make anything requested. The fajitas are definitely the most popular menu item and the ceviche is also a favourite. It would be nice to have you back to the restaurant some day. More

Cheese in enchiladas was still cold and not melted. Tacos were okay. Server was nice. Have to ask for salsa. So stick with tacos and cocktails!

The limeade that we had was wonderful! The food was just so so, it was not good enough for us to go back. The service was good and the manager was very nice.

Was so excited to get queso and guac and the order was tiny for the price. We are from Texas so maybe our standards are higher but thought there would be more than a tiny ramekin. The fajitas were really good, however the quesadillas were terrible. They were full of grease and just pretty gross. They are apparently under new... More

Happy to report no strawberries were harmed during the making of our strawberry Margarita. Pina Colada was mediocre. Stingy servings of guacamole both on the fajita plate and as an appetizer. Tortilla soup was extremely salty and oily. Overall edible food, does the job when you are hungry and too tired to go into town. Certainly not worth leaving town... More
