"I normally don't review what I consider to be "up-scale fast-food" places, like chains with a pedigree, but not having been to Lone Star in several years, I thought we'd give it a try. I had a friend coming in from out-of-town, and he was going on a charter the next day, and was sure he'd be gettin..."g his fill of fish that evening (I'm a seafood person, but I deferred to him) and we decided on Lone Star). He'd never been to one and wasn't thrilled about Outback. Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise. The waitress said that the filet was the tenderest steak, but the rib-eye was the tastiest (lots of marbling, etc.) My friend ordered it (m-rare) and he really liked it. My wife had the Taste of Texas Sampler as a dinner (wings,fired green beans and Texas skins (or something like that) with tater's bacon, cheddar, green onions, sour cream, etc. She loved it. i had the chopped sirloin, which came perfectly cooked medium-rare and smothered in mushroom gravy. I scraped that off, directly...

"I have spent much of my life, since early adolescence, searching for wonderful cheeseburgers. By the time I got to high school, I had subsisted (while dining out) on cheese burgers & french fried shrimp. So, it takes a lot to impress me. This was my third or fourth trip to RR, and had my oldest d..."aughter, her husband, two grandchildren & my wife along. Our server (Jeff?), was incredibly busy, but stayed on top of us, subject to our every whim. (With 6 & 9 year-old kids, we can sometimes be a little trying, you know. I won't go into what we all had, ( the kids were happy with mac& cheese, and chicken strips), while the rest of us had burgers. My daughter & I both like spicy, and they had 3 or 4 choices that all sounded great. We asked (Jeff?) which was the hottest, and I picked his number one, my daughter number two. Now keep in mind that I have been a quest for great burgers for probably close to 60 years, and I was totally satisfied. Everyone else loved their food, too. One...

"My family and I have been to this location several times over the years. We will typically go on Sunday's for their buffet after we've had church. The food on the buffet is very good and the servers keep the drinks coming and are for the most part attentive.
My issue comes with the atmosphere. W..."hile the restaurant may want to bill itself as a family type place the clients at times can be a bit rowdy. My family - which includes my wife and 2 kids and on this occasion my in-laws - were extremely dissapointed in the managements inability to confront loud folks. On this particular occasion some parents of a hockey team decided to drink in the bar while they left their 8 kids around the entrance to the restaurant unattended and yelling and screaming and carrying on. I saw a guy ask them to please keep in down and the Mom(?) told the guy that "they are just kids" and that being loud and carrying on should be ok while she enjoyed her beers in the bar. Well it is not and that is someth...
