Good Steak , good value, Good service

We stop at this restaurant at at least once a year while on our way to or from visits to family in Kansas. It is near the Fairfield Inn in Effingham. The prices are good for nicely executed steaks, cooked to the temperature requested. Our server avidly tried to upsell us on various items, and then... read more

Went to lunch with my wife for my birthday at 12:30. Hardly anyone there which was a bad sign. Parking lot and side walk crumbling and full of holes. Empty place and lunch still took 1 hour and 10 minutes which was for just a burger and fries. We ordered a steak queso dip appetizer but waitress came out 15... More

This is our usual place for dinner when traveling through Effingham. However, our experience tonight wasn't so great. The service was irregular and some of the servers seemed like they were in training. The drink from the bar was not correct although the manager did stop by and replace it after we had finished our dinner. We ordered the bacon... More

Made reservations for party of 7, quickly took us back upon arrival. Our waitress was wonderful and the manager was friendly as she checked on us to make sure we were satisfied with our dinner. The food was as ordered and our steaks were done to perfection. Thanks for a great dining experience! Will be back!

Really enjoyed the meal and the friendly staff is a major plus. Their iced tea is freshly brewed and their 4 cheese Mac is amazing! I loved my first experience at Lone Star

Service was terrible, ate a burger late at night that was very good, but I ordered decaf coffee and she gave me regular coffee ( I cannot taste the difference ) and when she refilled my cup I asked if it was decaf she said yes. I was awake all night from the caffine. Husband had to wait a long... More

This easy to access steakhouse is right off of Interstate 70. The staff is friendly and the food has always been great. The one time that my meal was not as expected, the waitress was accommodating and returned with the perfect meal - no hassles. The appetizers are great and the steaks are so juicy. My tea glass is always... More

Crowded on a Sunday evening but even with plenty of staff we waited and waited and waited for someone to even acknowledge us after we were seated. After about 15 minutes and getting up to ask if anyone was ever going to come to our table, we finally were able to get drinks and dinner ordered. Turned out it was... More

No complaints here about the service. My order was taken soon after sitting down and the meal was served very quickly. The blue cheese lettuce head salad was fine. The steak was fair, and the bacon wrapping the meat really did not add much flavor. The broccoli portion was not very large and it was scattered unattractively around the plate.... More
