We had lunch here. The servings are very large for an average price. The quality is so-so bar food. The advantage is that they have neat signs indoors and it was close to our condo. If you are just hungry and not to picky this is the place for you. One thing I would recommend you not get is the... More

Our last night on the island as Texans staying in South San Pedro we felt we can't see a Lone Star Grill and not check it out. It was just okay. Staff was nice. Food was okay. Tried conch fritters for the first time and they were good. Dipping sauce was great. Portions for our meals were not great for... More

This is a great place to stop for a bite if you are in the area. We loved the shrimp fajitas (huge portion) and even the chicken fingers! Good food, nice variety for good prices.

The food was alright. I had the cheese enchiladas and hubby had fajitas. They were both alright. Didn't taste like home (San Antonio or Houston). The chips and salsa though are excellent!

Our server was Carlos and the meal was excellent. In fact, this was one of the best meals we had in our 10 days on Ambergris Caye. One tip though, we all got eaten alive by sand flies or some sort of gnats under the table, so load up on bug spray on your legs. Make sure to ask the... More

We stay south of San Pedro and have driven by Lone Star on previous visits. Last night on the island for most recent visit, we decided to give it a try. Refreshingly cold beer, meals okay, desserts outstanding. Key lime pie, just the right amount of lime, frozen custard. Coconut cream pie, loaded with coconut.

This is definitely a "cantina", but has more to offer than bar food. The atmosphere is as laid back, as you'd expect, but the beer is cold, the food is hot, and the staff are friendly. My wife and I both had the jerk chicken, and it was really wonderful. I'd certainly go back, if it weren't for the fact... More

Cool looking space but the drinks weren't that good (seemed like they were made with a mix rather than fresh fruit) and the food was uninspiring.

Located on the south side of the island Lone Star provides an assortment of Tex/Mex options. The chicken and shrimp curry is very good, however my favorite was the shrimp quesadillas they are full of shrimp, cheese, veggies. The service was good however the ambiance was a bit lacking. Over all good lunch spot.

Lone Star had good food and they even delivered to our villa at Pelican Reef Villas. Great for a night when you've been in the sun all day and just don't want to go back out again.

Come down to the Lone Star for some great Tex Mex, Gringo Favorites and some fresh seafood. The Gringo Favorites include items like the Texas Fried Steak, burgers, salads, chicken fingers and more. The seafood includes fish, lobster (while in season) and shrimp. The portions are large and nobody will leave hungry. You'll love every bite!
