My wife and I recently ate dinner here. The service was good, but the quality of the steaks were terrible. We both ordered ours medium rare. Mine came as ordered but the wife's was closer to medium well. I was able to "saw off" a few pieces to chew, but quickly gave up and discarded them. My wife's was just... More

First time at a Lone Star. (Actually, first and last). My pork chops were quite good. My wife, on the other hand, had "fish" and chips (substitute small baked potato). The "fish" was 3 2" squares about 1/4" thick (and that included breading). I didn't know that knives could cut that thin. I tasted it, and it was the worst... More

The med steak we got was tasteless, bloody, and could barely chew it. Sides were less than average. Only half of our food was edible. Service was just ok. Music too loud. We go here about once a year or less, and now I remember why. I think we'll skip it next year. Too many chains are now using prepackaged... More

Worst experience ever. Will not return. Front desk seemed incompetent about how to handle a party of 8. Put us on a wait when there were open tables. Wouldn't seat us at available table because of a reservation that wasn't due for over an hour.

The restaurant is understaffed. We waited an hour for the table and another hour at the table and still no food. A lot of people running around, but no service. Proenza have come in after us and they've eaten and left already. Brutal.

They have excellent steaks! Waitress was friendly and took great care of us. We had delicious fried mushrooms with Texas ranch upon request! Best meal in town!

Oh my -- we mistook this place for Longhorn and it is FAR from Longhorn. It is a bit deceptive since it has the same look and feel as a Longhorn but this is NOT Longhorn. Inexperienced waitstaff, marginal food and drinks. Just not a place I would recommend.

This Lone Star is in a good location, but the access is a little hidden on an access road and backs up to a shopping center. The restaurant decor, but did seem a little dark inside to me. Staff is fine, but I sensed a little bit of attitude when they severed me. Small stuff but noticeable. The food was... More
