“Great food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I've been at this restaurant twice and love the experience. You'll have to wait a while during peak hours but for the most part, the drinks are reasonably price from their beers to their margaritas and the food comes in big portion sizes.
You'll never have a disappointing moment and would highly recommend this restaurant. Its known in the local area by flight crews, business professionals and people staying in the local hotels. If you're looking for good drinks, Lone Star is the place to go!!

“Service was great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

While the food was average our server more than made up for it.

She was pleasant, courteous and knew the menu. Even the staff that greeted us were extremely pleasant. Granted, we were early for the supper crowd but maybe Lone Star is working on their bad rep for service?

Let's hope that this experience was the new standard based on the previous reviews I just noted.

“Wait with sarcastic attitude.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Just because some had to wait longer to get a seat than what we might, Doesn't mean I have to like it.
Lots of other places to spend my dollars at.
Better learn how to talk to people who are paying your wages.

“Like Waiting To Be Seated???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Recently during a visit to a trade show at the International Centre in Toronto, we decided to try the Lone Star on Dixon Road (by Pearson airport). Although we had heard from a number of people that the service at this particular location was terrible, we had been to enough other Lone Stars to pass this off as heresy. Boy were we wrong. We waited over 10 minutes in the lobby for someone to seat us without any success, so we left mighty hungry. Bus boys walked right past us without asking if they could help us and to add insult to injury, the bartender could easily see that we wanted to be seated without an offer of any help. We definitely will no be going back to this Lone Star location especially when there are numerous other choices on the airport strip!!!

“Great Fajitas - Slow Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The wait was long as the Cottage Show was on during this weekend. After we got our meal, the drinks were slow as the bar was really busy. The waitress apologized which was appreciated. The waitress was really nice and pleasant - too bad the service was slow.
