We were recommended this chain by our hotel as we were staying in Riccarton. Plenty of parking and very popular. Easier to find a table later on as the Kiwis eat out earlier than the UK but similar to Sweden. A chain restaurant experience so you know what to expect after you have been to one. Good range of hearty,... More

It was a special last meal in NZ for my overseas family who had visited, they wanted to take everyone out for a nice meal to thank them for their great experience here in NZ. There were 5 adults, a 9 year old and two 4 year old children. Everything went really smoothly, the waitress and service in general was... More

A very packed busy restaurant at 5.30, seated straight away, we took advantage of byo, told we could only have one opened at a time but we weren't drinking the same so happily changed the rules to accommodate us. Shocked gutted and devastated my Dixie chicken came with mash!!! Looked bland and uninteresting on the plate, ordered it without looking... More

Ordered starter (bread) and mains. Mains arrived first followed by starter 30 seconds later. I think Lone Star may have stuffed up here.

Have not been to this Lonestar for a few years, but fortunately, not too much has changed! Food was really tasty and we stuck with the old favorites- Johnny Cash Stash and Dixie Chicken. Service was good and overall we had a very pleasant meal out with friends.

Visited with some work colleagues. Steaks were cooked well and very tender. Overall the meal was ok , service was ok, and ambience was ok - nothing startling but nothing to complain about as well.

Went to the Lone Star with friends. Usual high standard of food and great service. My wife and I have pork ribs, our favourite at any Lone Star. We both had 6 ribs which was more than enough for us. Glad they provided finger bowls we needed them. The sauce on the ribs was to die for. The side salad... More

I hankered for red meat and was. It disappointed. I ordered the Maverick which is pan fried and then oven baked. Served on potato and spinach. 10 out of 10. Absolutely brilliant.
