Great atmosphere, fun country style type place. As my first time eating here I was impressed by the menu. I ordered the steak sandwich, my boyfriend had enchiladas. If the steak hadn't been over cooked (medium rare came out with no pink) my meal would have been enjoyable. The enchiladas were pretty tasteless and our food took about 45 minutes. Don't think I'll be trying again, once was enough. There are much better eats around Barrie.

The Lone Star in Barrie is much the same as others,.. just a little newer. Decent friendly staff still learning the ropes, but eventually your drink will make it to the table and the all you can eat fajitas are certainly filling, never ending and hot .... with the mix of shrimp, beef and chicken, there are sure enough varieties of fajita you make are sure to make you happy. This special is on Tuesday nights only. There are specials every night along with many drink specials all which were good. An amazing dessert on a sizzling hot cast iron platter of apple crumble with ice cream on top and a caramel /toffee (like possibly with a bit of bourbon) hot gooey liquid poured over to make your mouth water,..and it was very hot. Yeehaaa! And the fresh corn chips with salsa were great as usual. Make sure you ask for guacamole or you may not get it with any dish you order. Ride em cowboy have a beer and bring an appetite and git some of that spicy southwestern food in ya! You know what your going to get at this type of place. Just a fun food kinda joint. Nice outdoor patio if your just going for beer or a drink with appies.

We have been to this Barrie location of the Lonestar, 3 times and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. The freshly made burritos are great! The service has been very good and only once on a small item did we encounter an error, which was quickly and efficiently handled. We love the atmosphere and we love the food and service. We will return many more times.

My children chose the Lone Star to celebrate their end of year report cards. We had eaten at the lone star in Kingston many times and loved it. Unfortunately the food was disappointing. The country fried steak was tough and tasted like liver and vegetables hard. My son ordered the childrens fajitas and the meat portion was much smaller than he has received in the past. His fries were very soggy and he left them behind. The service was very good and we can't fault them for their enthusiasm but when asked if everything was OK we just said yes so the kids would not feel disappointed with their big meal out.

We came to celebrate a birthday. Arrived at 5:30 our food didn't show up until 7:10 and one persons meal was completely forgotten. Will never be coming back!
