I have been going here for a while but will probably will not return. For $20 meal i would expect the food to be hot and cooked correctly. I ordered a med steak and shrimp. The steak was at best med well and cold the potato would not even melt the butter. The worst part was the plate wasn't even... More

This was my first time at a Lone Star Steakhouse. We were here for lunch on a Monday and business was slow (only a few other tables with customers). The service was good and the server brought us refills without getting too empty. The food was good and cooked to order. I would definitely try it again for lunch some... More

Haven't been to Lone Star in years. Food was good, buns though were not warm and did not seem very fresh. Our waitress was Excellent, we had 9 people 2 different tables and she took the time to split up our bills and didn't make a mistake. Wish I could remember her name to give her a Shout Out.

Years ago we lived in Rockford and this was our favorite steakhouse in the area. It's probably been 8-10 years since we last ate here. It was a pleasant surprise to find that it was still good. We were here on a Saturday evening before Mother's Day and it was busy. We didn't have reservations, but wait was only about... More

The wife and I came for lunch. Service was terrible- our order was wrong. The wait staff was inattentive and didn't even ask if we needed a refill for our soda. The place was nearly empty, so no need for such innatention! The food was decidedly average!

We have done Lone Stars in other cities. This one is nice, more open and less bunkhouse than older ones elsewhere. Just a short wait on a Saturday night, probably attributable to the host of other corporation food places in the vicinity. Zach gave great service, but the steaks were kind of variable from the medium standard. Wedge salad is... More

I've been to Lone Star before - the food was good, as expected. We were a party of five, and two of the party received the wrong side/missed a course. To their credit, when the errors were brought to their attention, they fixed them immediately, including offering a free dessert. So I'd go back again - people make mistakes, but... More
