We arrived as a group of 7 including one child on a Tuesday evening at about 6:30. Despite being very busy, the hostess seated us at nice table in fairly short time. It took a longer time for our waitress to arrive for drinks' orders and even longer for her to return with them. My draught beer was flat. She... More

You know, if it's impossible to get a table, it means the place is good. Food is tex-mex, good quality, decent service considering it's allways packed. You need to do reservations in advance and be willing to wait at least one hour before getting a table on a weekend. Try their "fajitas"; they are simple but full of flavour. Nice... More

It's a fun environment, great food, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. The "What we're known for" items are what to order. They also make fantastic margaritas.

Fresh unlimited tortillas, lettuce for wrapping if you want, steak, chicken and shrimp with lots of lettuce, Pico, sour cream, guac, beans, rice and ribs. Two beers, one iced tea and a kids dessert for $73 with tax. Very good. Would've preferred corn tortillas but the freshness and great service from Billy the kid more than made up for my... More

I've eaten at this chain once before last year in another Canadian city which I gave a very good rating. This location didn't stack up. If Trip Advisor had a Good rating, I probably would've gone there. There was nothing bad, it just wasn't "very good." The steak was cooked properly but a bit tough. The side of veggies was... More

The Lone Star seems to have gone down hill. The fahitas were boring. What happened to spice? On the good side, this restaurant had a comfortable, relaxed feel and our waiter was very pleasant.

The guy who makes tortillas is the hardest worker in the place tonight. He obviously takes pride in a clean organized work station! He deserves recognition. Service overall was very good, and the food was delicious.

The service was good,,the place is starting to feel worn out ,,could use a facelift,,we ordered prime rib ,,it was very undercooked,,the server never asked us how we like it and i like my meat well done. I asked for some extra rice and was charged extra for it. I was not impressed.

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!
