Lone Star Float House

Float on in for the best burger on River Road. Tubes and burgers on the Guadalupe River right past the second crossing on River Road or right past the tube chute if you’re floating. Summertime fun is happening here and shirts and shoes are optional. You can’t pick a more beautiful place to have... read more

From the looks of their menu I've been really wanting to try their food. I've tried calling on two separate occasions and it just leads to a dead end. So I went there to order and apparently they are closed when their website says open. I don't think I'm gonna go through the trouble of ever trying to eat there... More

Good food, wish there was indoor seating and fountain drinks. Burgers and nachos were great but sun and heat was off putting after a full day on the river. Our group had to sit at 3 tables to be out of the sun.

The guy in the hut next to the river grilled up a great hamburger and sausage stick. The frozen margarita and french fries from the main restaurant were great too!

I classify as a dive ice house on the river for those who toob, yes-toob. A tube is for your truck tire. Outdoor seating, some under cover from the sun, some not. Bring your girlfriend and eat & drink in a bikini (her-not you dummy). The hamburgers are big and very good! Try their Cuban Panini. I did twice. Excellent!... More

We usually just float the horseshoe via Whitewater but was looking for something longer this yr. A family member recommended this place and we were not disappointed. Love that we could grab a bite to eat while there, before hitting the river. Big menu of casual & greasy goodness. A bit expensive but I wasn't offended. You expect to pay... More

Lone Star Float House is a great place to just hang out, eat very good food, and sit down by the river and just have fun.

Food is okay. Fries were seasoned, which was nice. I ordered the burger, which was singed. My wife ordered the brisket tacos which were dry. The Saturday afternoon manager had a bad attitude. He locked the side gate from the river with no explanation as to why. He made it difficult to come to eat at this place. Overall, good... More

Be prepared to wait a little for your food as it is made fresh after you order, but have no doubt it's worth the wait! The burgers are big, and cooked perfectly. The best I've had in a long time. Order at the counter and then relax outside on a covered patio overlooking the river. A great, casual place for... More
