“Plain old, same old”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I was quite interested in going to this restaurant as I had heard radio ads about the ribs being great. Tried them and the quality was variable on the same plate! Had about 10 ribs of which 2 were decent and succulent. The rest were not big on meat content and were not succulent as good ribs should be. In a word they are scrawny. We had banofee pie for desert and it was poorly presented and dissapointing. In general the food was quite plain and boring and the decor is dated. The waitresses are young but friendly and quite adequate.To be fair I am comparing the ribs with Canadian ribs which are meaty, succukent and BIG on flavour. The visit at Lone Star left me cold.

“Nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Great food, mostly good service, but staff quite young - had to hound them for drinks all the time which was a tad annoying, but quick service on the food front

dinner was very good - kids love the menu - price can be limiting - parking was hard as we took about 15 minutes looking for a place to park
