I've had several apps and salads over 3 visits here in the last few months of travel. everything has been very good. service can be spotty as they get large groups which create challenges.

Stopped in here as it was close to where we were staying. Nice pleasant staff throughout. Food was good and steak was done exactly as ordered. Draft beer choice is limited. Pretty much a standard Lone Star.

Tried making reservations online, no response, by phone and no response. Tried calling ahead to get on wait list, no response. Showed up, 15 minutes wait, 30 minutes later, still not seated. Great way to celebrate a birthday. Don’t come here. Denis C

Considering this is a tex-mex place I was disappointed that they stopped serving beans with their fajitas it only comes with rice. Rice and beans have been a tradition for fajitas and should not have to be requested. Shamefull way to cut costs.More

Okay let me start off by saying lonestar is my favourite place for fajitas. The problem is, their portions just keep getting smaller and smaller. For the fajitas for two, it's only enough meat for ONE. I'm a petite female and I'm saying this. In...More

Description
Our famous fajitas are served up fresh - from the warm flour tortillas to the guacamole and the salsa. Wood fire grilled AAA steaks and smokehouse ribs are all prepared in the barbecue pit. Lone Star guarantees great food, warm southern hospitality, and a good time. We are Canada's only authentic Texas restaurant - the real deal...TEXAS to the BONE!
