Ordered green chili tacos and adobada tacos. Amazing! Excellent guac and chips as well. Blew our expectations away. Highly recommended.

Lone Star has been a favorite for years. Depending on the fish they offer, fish tacos are something I usually get. I love the tamales, too. The staff are always friendly, and the service is fast. The only downside is the parking, which is complicated by the fact that so many people are oblivious to others...That's not Lone Star's fault,... More

The atmosphere is "active" - not quiet but not too noisy and it is sort of funky design. The tacos are very good, but not necessarily on par with what you might get in the best traditional Tex-Mex if you are used to California or Texas fare. That being said, the flavors are a bit different, and it seems healthy,... More

Fish Tacos... Get at least one. It's what they are known for add they are outstanding! I also love the carne tacos as quesadillas. The seating is always tight, but the atmosphere is exciting and energetic. Gotta love the old station wagon in the front too!

Simple, unassuming and a great deal. Incredible taste, eclectic atmosphere, excellent lunch place. Fast food. Think of it as a food truck with an indoor and outdoor sitting. Come early for lunch because it is probably the best lunch place in the area.

small place, but fun atmosphere. Friendly staff that handles the crowd well. I ordered the 2 taco combo platter and got one shrimp and one carne asada. The carne asada taco was good, meat was tender but the taco was dry. The shrimp taco was amazing. Rice and beans were great. good prices.

I had never heard of this place before until a friend took me there. I was nervous about cross contamination due to having Celiac disease ( gluten free). Everything on their menu was gf ( with exception to the flour tortillas)! I loved their nachos- they were loaded and delishious! We received quick service and everyone was very friendly. I... More

The wait - in the drive thru or inside waiting for a table - is completely worth it. The carne asada is amazing, but it's the grilled fish tacos that stand out. They rotate the type of fish daily, so each time we go, we hope it's red snapper (we don't love the salmon, though it is still delicious) or... More

Needed some Mexican comfort food after just landing in SL. Between the 4 of us we ate just about everything, tacos, burritos, chips, guac. All delicious and hot....good combo:). Definitely recommend if you are in the area but be mindful of parking during lunch or dinner.
