Recently, We had the chance to visit the Lonestar Restaurant in Rotorua.
This was a Birthday Celebration with friends and Family. Hannah was our Waitress, and did a great job of keeping us supplied with all that was required.
A couple of Beers, Great Food, and Great service!
Lonestar always puts on a Great Meal, plenty to eat, and at a very reasonable price.
Well done, again!
Recommended to All!

The meals were the biggest I have ever received in a restaurant worldwide- holy moly the strap of pork- no way a human could eat it!! delicious, fab steaks. great atmosphere. As good as it was 2 years ago. awesome for families.

Thank you so much for the feedback. Yes that Lassoo of Hog is about the biggest meal we serve, 450grams minimum of beautiful rolled pork. Most people know us for our generous servings but we might have to get you to try one of our medium sized meals next time so you can try our Entrees. You don't know what you're missing out on.

Been many times for family birthdays.5 adults 4 kids. Seated straight away! My nieces love the colouring in and the Hero burgers! I had the Maverick fillet Steak with blue cheese cooked to perfection. Awesome service by Hannah and Sandy! Great food, great service, great night. Thanks!

Group of 13 of us went to Lone Star - on the whole the service was very good - Hannah particularly was very attentive. Food was good - plenty of GF options which was important to us having a GF friend! Only thing was the bare floors and walls made it extremely noisy (we didn't help!) Other reason we chose it was they had the All Blacks game on!

Thanks for coming in that night and glad you enjoyed it. We always have the All Blacks on the screens whenever they're playing, it does make the place a bit rowdy though I'll admit. Andy Allan

we had dinner here, we shared a few starters and each had our own dessert.
the atmosphere was good, and i love the decor of the place.
But the food was ok.
The best part of the night was our waiter who was very nice.
for a meal that cost us $70, we where not blown away.
