As a long time Lone Star patron...this may be the last time i eat there. It has been a long slow decline over the last few years, and it has hit bottom. Although our server tried very hard, when the kitchen can't get food out in a reasonable time and actually serve a table of 6 at the same time...its... More

Hi Ray, Thank you for sending in your comments. Regarding the chips and salsa, we are donating the proceeds, after the cost is covered, from the $1 sale. We tried hard not to charge, but unfortunately all costs have risen especially over the last few years. The proceeds will go to the Ontario food bank to distribute in our communities.... More

A return visit for us reaffirmed the quality of this restaurant. Shooter served us and was both attentive and detailed. Our food order was delicious. The wing sauce is rich and filling, but the fries were absolutely fantastic. We sat at our table and talked for an extra hour and Shooter kept us happy by checking in on us occasionally.... More

I've been a fan of the Lone Star since the Baseline & Fisher original location! Prices have gone way up, food quality has not & the Lone Star atmosphere is lost!!! Sad!!!!! Not sure I will be back! No affordable lunch menu & now charging for chips & salsa ($1 ) which was always a staple at the Lone Star!... More

Hi Susan E, Thank you for reviewing Lone Star. We appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately, after 30 years of giving out chips and salsa for free, we have had to start to charge. Especially over the last few years, all costs (food, labour, rent, utilities) have gone up. But we wanted to keep the price reasonable at $1 per order. From... More

Went out with friends last night and had chicken quesadillas. Very disappointing, for $17.50, there was hardly any chicken, actually hardly anything in it and very bland; it was flat like a pancake, that tells you how much ingredients inside. I would never order this again, ever, what a rip off. I had quesadillas at Boston Pizza for less and... More

Knew it was going to be chain type food but they didn't even hit that level. Poor all around guys. Food was cold and tasteless. Nice waitress but obviously overworked.

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

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!
