I love this place. It's full of character. It has great service, huge drinks and some of the best Texas style BBQ that you will find in the north. The servers are second to none. Great personality and solid knowledge of the menu. They make the experience fun. Food is cooked to perfection, very tasty and there's lots of it.... More

Lone Star doesn't exactly fit my definition of Tex-Mex, but it served up some very adequate food on two occasions during a recent stay in Ottawa. Wind, cold, and snow discouraged me from straying more than a few meters from my hotel, which was right next to Lone Star, but that didn't present any real hardship since I enjoyed a... More

We went to this Lonestar location with a large group that was in Ottawa for a hockey tournament. We had 25+ adults and 15+ kids and the service handled our large group well with no issues with the food order. They also had a good setup with the tables for the kids and adults. No complaints about the food either.... More

Recently visited Ottawa for the first time and was staying in the Holiday Inn located next door to Lone Star. I had never heard of this chain of restaurant and was presently surprised by this venue.

We went to dinner at Lone Star while we were in Ottawa and had a very fun time. It was their annual Halloween party! The place was hopping!! We had an excellent server who very quietly and efficiently took care of us. I had mac and cheese balls that were delicious and my husband had chicken fajitas which he really... More

I eat at this resto quite a bit when I'm staying in Ottawa. It's fashioned after a Texas honky-tonk or roadhouse with the waiters and waitresses dressed in cowboy denim attire. There's country music permeating the loud upbeat atmosphere. Teh wait staff is very firendly and the menu runs the gamut from steak to ribs and burgers. There's surely something... More

My second review for this Lonestar is still a bad one. Never again will I come here. The service was great but the food is not so great. My husband ordered the steak for $19.00 you get a soup or salad. He chose the soup bad mistake. It took 15 minutes before getting his soup. It was a cup full... More

Need I say more. The restaurant wasn't busy and there is no excuse for sending out raw chicken. I could tell after the second bite, and it was raw for two of us at the table. They did comp our meals, but we will not ever be back. The food in general is cheap, nothing worth writing home about either.

Description
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!
