We are from Texas and didn't know what to expect. The nachos were not great. The chili sauce was sweet ( my opinion is chili should never be sweet). The husband had the ribeye and it was cooked appropriately with good sides. I had the special (duck confit) which was very tender and a nice meal.

Lone star provides great pub/diner/grill food every time. Rotorua is no exception. Found the staff to be really good here and very accomodating on a busy Friday night. Will always go if stuck for a solid feed!
