“Probably the best Lone Star in New Zealand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I've eaten at just about every Lone Star in New Zealand and on this occasion we visited the Lone Star in Taupo with family and friends whilst on holiday.

The service, food and atmosphere is nothing short of "world-class" and exceeded our past experience from the other Lone Star restaurants we have visited around the country. The staff here are absolutely gorgeous! The team of well groomed waiting staff provide amazing service with a big smile and simply cant do enough for you. As usual, the food was excellent and represents great value for money. Here's to you, Taupo Lone Star, you are simply the best!

“Thankyou team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I took my little girl out for a late dinner and she wanted to try the new Lone Star in Taupo... she was given a top to wear with the lone star logo which she thought was the coolest thing ever... The food and service was excellent. Atmosphere great and surroundings prefect.
We ate around 8.30pm, when leaving they were still taking in bookings... I thought this great as summer most people like to dine later on.
thankyou guys for a lovely evening.... we will be back.

“Nice, helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Nice and new, good service and food. We did had a problem with the pavlova desert, but they were so good in sorting that out for us, In other places we have been to it would have been bad luck pay up. Good on you Lonestar

“Bit long a wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great service, even though they forgot our meals., the replacement waitress sorted it out pronto. That was o.k for us but kids had enough waiting and started getting upset.
Food was fantastic.
