Ordered four different steaks for all of us could not even cut it with a knife and no flavor for most everything else. Salad had so much salad dressing and I couldn't even see the lettuce. Service was decent but very expensive I'll never go back. Will stick with Texas Roadhouse never disappoints.

I have to drive to Thornton from WY about once a quarter usually on Sunday afternoon or evening. I went to lone star once and have returned ever since. They aren't that busy on Sunday night so I can go and relax after a day's drive. Tonight I had the filet with steamed broccoli and it was excellent. Some places... More

Worst food I've had in a restaurant in awhile. Shrimp was frozen, bread cold, and steak I would trade for a hot dog. Keep on driving.

The restaurant had a good menu, and the food was average. This was mostly a steak and potatoes type of place. The waitress forgot to bring the beer which my wife had ordered.

Our favorite 'Texas Style' restaurant is Lone Star. The meals are always consistent. My husband usually orders a rack of BabyBack Ribs - they are always fall off the bone - regardless the time of day we stop-in. Often I'll order the Sweet Potato - as a meal & they serve a pretty large potato. They serve cold beer &... More

Had dinner with a family member while staying at the Hampton Inn next door. The food here was very good. We were surprised because when we walked in, there were few people in the restaurant. We had grilled chicken and chicken fried steak. Both were excellent and nothing went back to the kitchen. The service was slow even with hardly... More

First time dining at the Lone Star. Service was awesome, food was OK, beer was fantastic! Close proximity to hotel we were staying at and therefore, a discount. Would I return - absolutely!!!

As my title says and my rating...this restaurant is a basic steakhouse with little to call you back. My steak was okay, sides were okay and cocktail / beer selection was okay. Service was good. I have to say that Longhorn across the street...doesn't offer much more.

Thank cathleen c
