I am not impressed by the chains but the food at this Lone Star was very good I really don't have an affinity for one restaurant chain over the other but now I will choose Lone Star over the other steak houses.

Yes, I did.......it was a bit out of my comfort zone when going to my favorite "beef house" in town. But, I wanted to try the Chicken salad w/Avocado, and I'm glad I did. It was a tasty treat. The service was on top of things and their special margarita was right on the money! It was a good meal.

Lone Star is our favorite steak house in Bloomington-Normal. We usually visit about every other month, not because we don’t like it, but because there is an insane amount of restaurant choices in the area. The servers at this location are always friendly and helpful, and most of them do a good job of making you feel at home. On... More

We visited Lone Star on a rainy Monday night, so it was pretty quiet. This was our first time visiting a Lone Star. There were 3 of us. One ordered a steak dinner, and it was very good. Two ordered burgers. One was from the regular menu and one from the $5 burger night menu. Both were excellent. We all... More

Never been to a Lone Star before and will never go back. If you don't ask for bread you don't get it. Food over priced and not very good! Annoying waitress named Krystal needs to take it down a few notches. Tried to appear friendly but almost came off as patronizing she kept interrupting us. Here's a tip clear the... More

They did better this time for the service, but amusing in a way. Our waitress was training another. They missed serving the bread. We had to ask the server that brought our entree's for that. She said I'm sorry they missed that earlier. So, our waitress training another...well she was training another but doesn't quite have it all down. They... More

To me, for being a chain, Lone Star Steakhouses have good quality food, it's not too pricey and we've not had a problem with the cook/kitchen of any of them. Service though at this particular location is lacking. So far, first time we've a problem with this at a Lone Star. Our waitress was not that attentive and it didn't... More

The restaurant is not very large but well staffed. The food is ok. The steaks were not quite up to a Texans standards, But for this area were quite good.
