This was a fun evening out. The actors were actually very good for a small local production and they were great at involving the audience. The actual food was only mediocre, but you go for the overall experience. The full bar offered some great drinks. The evening was so much fun, but I wouldn't bring the kids to this one. The jokes are a tad bit risque, which made it great for the adults, but left the sole child in the place looking a little out of place. I would highly recommend this for an evening out - then in good weather be sure to save time to walk around Main Street.

We really enjoyed meeting some new folks at our table and the meal was very good. The highlight for us though, was the entertainment. The actors truly enjoyed what they were doing and that joy rubs off on an audience. They were funny and interacted with the audience without putting anyone out, "front and center". We look forward to going back with our own friends, sometime in the future.

The acting was quite amateurish. The actors just walk between the tables for the show. Not very entertaining. The food was OK. Typical chicken fried that looks huge because of a massive amount of breading. I wouldn't go back.

Thank you for attending our Lone Star Murder Mystery at the Texas Star Dinner Theater. We regret that you did not enjoy your experience with us. We are a professional entertainment company with 36 years of experience producing old-west comedy productions for events and venues across the country. Our production company takes pride in the talents of our seasoned actors, most of whom hold degrees in theater, and the many awards and accolades we have received over the past decade. However, we realize that live theater, especially comedy, is highly subjective and what many may find hilarious, another simply does not.

The Texas Star Dinner Theater is a unique and unconventional theater experience. Our 90-minute performances are written and produced for the purpose of an audience interactive experience with the characters moving in around the audience rather than a traditional performance on stage.

Aware that most of our first time guests may not know what to expect in this unique type of theater, we provide as much information as possible about the experience on our web site. On the home page in our Q&A section we explain exactly what guests can expect: "…at our theater the actors perform in and among the tables, directly interacting with audience members."

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your food entree. At every performance, we have a Catering and House Manager readily available to assist with guests’ needs.
