Description: The Lone Star Saloon is a Texas themed bar and grill located in Central Phnom Penh just a few yards away from the st. 51 entertainment district. We specialize in Southern home cooking. Our menu features Chicken Fried Steak, Slow Smoked Pork Ribs, Pulled Pork Sandwiches.....and many more southern favorites. We are open early for breakfast and stock a full bar. We are primarily an expat's bar, although our staff and clientele are extremely friendly and we can help newbies navigate their way around the city..or the country. We are a family run business and we treat our customers as family. We strive to provide good value for money with inexpensive drinks and healthy food portions. We are not in any way a girlie bar.........just a friendly saloon.

“Good food in a Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I went there with a friend from Texas and UK. We had the pork ribs and the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and fried okra. Food was excellent and even our man from Texas was impressed (or homesick or both!).

The place is more a bar than a restaurant and is fairly small, so there is only one table and everyone else sits at the bar. The heavy metal music at lunchtime and dim lighting gave it an interesting dynamic. Staff was friendly and attentive. Wouldn't take my family there but might be back again.

“Best of Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I've had many a meal at Lone Star and never a bad one. Service has always been friendly and prompt. Best smoked ribs in Cambodia by a west Texas mile.

“My mouth waters just thinking about it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

If your craving Western Food or even if your not - go here! I had the pulled pork sandwich which was divine and my partner had the cheese burger with fries. Both dishes were delicious and we wish we could have it now! The waitresses are also very nice and smile all the time which was nice to see.

“We went there like 4 times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

I was in Phnom Penh for about a week and seriously went here like 4 times. The atmosphere was awesome, especially for an American. I tried pulled pork,
Chili burger, steak salad and wings. Everything was so so good! The staff was so kind and friendly to my boyfriend and I. I would totally recommend this place!

“Must Try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

For some good american food it is worth a try.
We ordered pork ribs, they were very tender and flavoursome. We also had the soft wrapped tortillas which were also very nice and the salad was fresh.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner; it was a nice break from the local cuisine.
