Dirty! Drab atmosphere! Service was slow after asking for refills, ketchup, & rolls...almost finished meal by the time it got there! First round of rolls were too overdone & should've never been served. 2 of 3 bread plates were dirty with dishwasher slime dried across them. Crumbs along back of table along the wall and gross vinyl tablecloths that were too big and laid across your lap so you touched it (probably the part never cleaned) when you grabbed the napkin on your lap. Brought a very dirty rag to clean table next to us. Ribeye Steak was overcooked and steak sandwich was the worst I've ever had...bland, rubbery and no seasoning on steak or in au jus dip. All overpriced for the quality. Go to your favorite fast food over this place so at least you know what you're getting!

Our waiter told us their restaurant had been recently remodeled. He also added they were having a contest to see who could sell the most bar drinks. We thought that was odd. The food was good, but as far as atmosphere, it left a lot to be desired.

We visited this restaurant a few years ago. The staff was very friendly, and welcoming. We had to wait a while, as we arrived just at the end of lunch rush on a Sunday. They serve peanuts in the shell while you wait, and the floor was cluttered with shells which I thought was tacky. I love the Western look to Lonestar! The decorations will keep you entertained as you sip drinks and eat your sampler waiting on your entree'. The waitress was very friendly and came back to the table to check on us several times as she should and once even coming back just to talk about the food and whether or not we enjoyed it, and just to chat. We didn't know this waitress but she was very friendly. Enjoyed eating here and would suggest to anyone looking for a great meal.

over-priced and terrible food. I am not sure how to mess up a burger yet, they managed.
