It's a fun environment, great food, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. The "What we're known for" items are what to order. They also make fantastic margaritas.

Fresh unlimited tortillas, lettuce for wrapping if you want, steak, chicken and shrimp with lots of lettuce, Pico, sour cream, guac, beans, rice and ribs. Two beers, one iced tea and a kids dessert for $73 with tax. Very good. Would've preferred corn tortillas but the freshness and great service from Billy the kid more than made up for my... More

I've eaten at this chain once before last year in another Canadian city which I gave a very good rating. This location didn't stack up. If Trip Advisor had a Good rating, I probably would've gone there. There was nothing bad, it just wasn't "very good." The steak was cooked properly but a bit tough. The side of veggies was... More

The Lone Star seems to have gone down hill. The fahitas were boring. What happened to spice? On the good side, this restaurant had a comfortable, relaxed feel and our waiter was very pleasant.

The guy who makes tortillas is the hardest worker in the place tonight. He obviously takes pride in a clean organized work station! He deserves recognition. Service overall was very good, and the food was delicious.

The service was good,,the place is starting to feel worn out ,,could use a facelift,,we ordered prime rib ,,it was very undercooked,,the server never asked us how we like it and i like my meat well done. I asked for some extra rice and was charged extra for it. I was not impressed.

Staying next door my wife, daughter and myself dropped by for our Saturday night dinner. Extremely busy but after half hour we got our table. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Piped music was loud and a large table beside us asked if it could be turned down. The staff quickly accommodated this request and was met with cheers. The food... More

As a long time Lone Star patron...this may be the last time i eat there. It has been a long slow decline over the last few years, and it has hit bottom. Although our server tried very hard, when the kitchen can't get food out in a reasonable time and actually serve a table of 6 at the same time...its... More

Hi Ray, Thank you for sending in your comments. Regarding the chips and salsa, we are donating the proceeds, after the cost is covered, from the $1 sale. We tried hard not to charge, but unfortunately all costs have risen especially over the last few years. The proceeds will go to the Ontario food bank to distribute in our communities.... More

A return visit for us reaffirmed the quality of this restaurant. Shooter served us and was both attentive and detailed. Our food order was delicious. The wing sauce is rich and filling, but the fries were absolutely fantastic. We sat at our table and talked for an extra hour and Shooter kept us happy by checking in on us occasionally.... 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!
