went to lone star on Monday new years day for dinner wasn't too busy. was put in a corner at a table for two .waited 15min for waitress to bring menu she didn't read the specials out to us ,which i must say had done a great job reading them out to other tables near bye.15 min later came back did say she was sorry for delay. got our order, ONE hour later we were given our mains, as we didn't order entrees.my potatoes (buffalo fries) were half raw and my honky tonk chicken was so burnt on the bottom, i could only eat the top half of it. My husbands dinner was good he had the rib-eye. the waitress came and asked how was our meal was ,so i told her what was wrong with it.she said oh ok and walked away . We sat in the corned for another 15 min waiting for our table to be cleared away and hoping for a desert menu, which never came. So we got up and went to pay the bill. i polity asked the nice young man at the desk, do you have a comments form. he said no,he asked what was wrong i told about our long wait and how was it that other bigger groups of people near us had got their dinner before us, even though we had ordered before them. This is when the young waitress came over to us and blamed it all on the kitchen staff . Didn't want to know about my dinner should have only paid $15.00 as i could only eat half of it the other being in-eatable. All we got was a sorry,now pay your bill. we left angry and gave the waitress a tip on our way out ( DONT SHOVE PEOPLE IN THE CORNER AND IGNORE THEM FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT) BEEN ON TWO OTHER OCCASIONS BEFORE GREAT SERVICE AND FOOD, NOT SURE WE WILL BE BACK
Lone Star Cafe and Bar is always a great place to eat and drink.
The food is always of a high quality and plenty of great choices.
The drinks menu is also good with lots of options - non alcoholic too.
They offer plenty of gluten free options for those who are intolerant.
The Lone Star Loaf for starters is a must.
The mains are really massive sized meals - I'd recommend the Redneck Ribs or Dixie Chicken.
The dessert menu has something for everyone. The Banoffie Pie is amazing.
The staff are really friendly and helpful.
It is an excellent family restaurant and never a let down.
