My husband and I used to love Lone Star, especially before they closed the one a mile closer to Durham and opened this one. I thought the new location would be better. I thought wrongly. Since opening, this location has been in a steady decline....More

We came for a family celebration, as our daughter, who is a grad student at UNC, was getting ready to be studying and researching abroad. We figured this might be her last really good steak until she gets back, given where she is going! We...More

The service and food were both excellent! Fast, friendly, superbly cooked using fresh ingredients. We can always count on a great steak here, and the salads and potatoes are excellent too! We find the 12oz. New York Strip is plenty for two people with extra...More
