Much better this time around

We had excellent service this time and we tipped accordingly. Food was served in the proper order and the food was prepared as ordered. We had a very good waitress, she made sure that we had everything we needed, asked if we wanted bread, checked on refills, everything. It's difficult to find... read more

We've always liked Lone Star Steakhouse. The one closest to us closed. I had the Lone Star Sirlon and was very pleased with it. The steak was tender and had a really good flavor. They did have to take it back and cook it a little bit more.

I have been here twice now (hoping it was just a one time thing) and both times the lettuce is brown and soggy just not fresh. Also they water down the salad dressing if I am gonna pay $13 for a salad it needs to be fresh!!! Go to outback I have never had bad food there and it's just... More

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
