I don't get it. I have read the bad reviews, do a lot myself, but I guess I've been lucky. Almost every time I've been there, (maybe 4-5 times), I've had a good experience. Maybe it's because I love their primo margaritas, have a couple of those and you won't be disappointed in anything. Just kidding, they are great..but won't 'put you over the limit'...especially if you have a hearty meal...and that's what you get. the portions are not small...be hungry. I've had nachos, pulled pork tacos (carnitas for you Mexican fans),, burritos, and salads. All decent. I've been on their patio in the summer, which is REALLY nice. It doesn't make you feel you are in a parking lot near the 401...which it is. Soft couches and chairs,... great ambience.
Yeah, the waitstaff can be 'hit or miss', but, for the most part, I am happy. I get what I expect from a 'chain restaurant'. You wnat a good 'chain restaurant'? Go to The Keg. Pay WAAY more...get better stuff. Nuff said. Lonestar is good, fairly priced, and has a good atmosphere. If you want to eat good Tex Mex in a clean, friendly place....do it. Remember the PRIMO margarita.....not a blender thing....REAL fruit juice, upscale tequila...bit of Grand Marnier...nicely salted rim....oh yeah...give me that and a burrito and I'm happy. Good eatin' y'all.
