“Lone Star has gone downhill”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Lone Star used to serve steak fries with their meals and now they serve fast food fries - worse than McDonalds. I will never go back their again. The food was terrible - I had the boubon salmon and it was dry and tastless. My husband had a delmonico steak and half of it was fat. The baked potatoe was OK, but not enough condiments. The cheap fries that replaced those delicious steak fries was the worst though.

“Close”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

I try to have a good steak dinner when I have to travel and it was nice to have the Lone Star Steakhouse so near to where I was staying. It was a clean place to eat and the service was nice.

“Typical chain..average fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

My wedge steak salad was decent, the steak good. It is a typical chain type steak house with average food and prices. Good if you're in a hurry and hungry, but not the best dining experience around.

“Good food and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

I was in Westminster for business and my hotel (Fairfield Inn) was only a few blocks from the Lone Star which was on the opposite side of the 25 Highway.

I had the ribs and they were falling off the bone tender and delicious.

The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. The prices and quality of food make it a great place for a meal.

I enjoy visiting Lone Stars in my travels and this one is a terrific one.

“Typical steakhouse fare”

Good food, reasonably prced, good service. Not a "classy" Steak place but good food served piping hot. Tasty and filling. Layout is like every Lonestar I have ever visited.
