This was a classic visit to Lonestar. The food was plentiful and good (note: they are charging for the previously "free" nachos and salsa) and the service was OK, not horrible, not great either. The food was hot, and everyone enjoyed their meal. They brought a pitcher of water for the table, but the other drink refills were on the... More

This restaurant is amazing! The fajitas are all you can eat for around $20 and are so fantastic I got the beef one and it was cooked perfectly! I would recommend this restaurant for families and couples wanting a home style dinner! No complaints!

Food was delicious. On a low carb low salt diet and they were very accomodating. I was able to enjoy my dinner without worrying about my diet.

Been going to lone star for about 25 years and have noticed little cut backs along the way- fajita has very little veggies, mainly onion. No longer cone with the stars been and rice.

Hello Anonymous Author, Thank you for your feedback and for being a 25 year guest.

Excellent service and great food. We really liked the New York Steak served with vegetables. We were there on a Thursday evening.

Every time I visit Ottawa, the first place I head to eat is the Lone Star. We used to have one in Halifax but they closed several years back. The food is delicious. The service is great. We miss it!! I always get the chicken fajitas and get extra torts to bring home for friends who miss the Lone Star... More

Anna, Thank you for your feedback.

Personally I really like Lone Star over other Tex-Mex restaurants, there fajitas are especially good and services better than most. Still wish people would stop having birthdays there, or they get rid of the triangle because that is the only annoying part of the dining experience.

Very average wings. Overpriced very few. Not spicy very greasey. You can find better wings elsewhere.

Recently visited Lone Star as it's been one of our favourite family destinations for many, many years. Charging for the chips and salsa now?? What a huge mistake - whoever came up with that idea?? It's something that set you apart from other restaurants, and one of the reasons we loved going there. Stating the reason being that prices have... More

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!
