The Lone Star never disappoints. Johnny Cash Stash is the meal to order, amazing anytime no matter what branch you visit. You will never leave here hungry. I love that they have the lonestar grab a meal to make it that much more affordable.
Papanui branch: Not the lonestar I remember. Wife and I had one of their largest means and had to order nachos at the end due to small portions (first time we've had to do that). Then nachos were basically just corn chips with greasy cheese (nothing but carbs (heart attack material)). $145 for a sub optimal feed. I guess you're trading on your past name. When we were asked how it all was and we mentioned this, we got shrugging shoulders in response.
