Very noisy, lighting very poor. Both my husband and I had the worst meal ever. Would never go back. I think we struck a bad night. Staff were not helpful.

Have not been to this Lonestar for a few years, but fortunately, not too much has changed! Food was really tasty and we stuck with the old favorites- Johnny Cash Stash and Dixie Chicken. Service was good and overall we had a very pleasant meal...More

Visited with some work colleagues. Steaks were cooked well and very tender. Overall the meal was ok , service was ok, and ambience was ok - nothing startling but nothing to complain about as well.
