The fish tacos are a bit overrated but the huge burritos are fantastic. The place is usually packed so parking is normally impossible. Plan on parking in some random business parking lot and walking across the street. There are better options for mex and Tex-mex in SLC but Lone Star is worth a try.

I used the drive through and got carne asada tacos and chips and guacamole. The service was pretty quick, the customer service was excellent, and the person that helped me seemed to genuinely be thankful for my business. Everything was delicious. The tacos were larger than I expected so I had lunch for the next day as well. I'll definitely... More

Don't let the funky Tex-Mex exterior put you off, Lone Star on F.Union Blvd is known for its authentic Mexican Food & never disappoints and the staff is super friendly! It has indoor & outdoor seating (summer) as well as a drive-up window, which has long lines at lunch & dinner inside & out. Favorite meals are the carne asada... More

This place is great. It has a cool vibe and delicious authentic food. The menu seems small but you can ask for pretty much any mexican item at the register and they will almost always have it. I usually stick with a burrito and usually cannot finish it. It puts cafe rio burritos to shame. I usually take cash as... More

We just beat the lunch crowd and were able to get a table and a parking spot. Split a carne Asada burrito as they are really generous with their portions. Also ordered a side of chips which are amazing. Don't miss their salsa bar. They have a range of mild to spicy salsas and pico which are always excellent.

Best tacos in Salt Lake. Super busy on Friday and Saturday around dinner time, but so worth the short wait if you can find room!

You can only submit another review if you've been again. Of course we've been again. This place is hard to beat after a hard day on the slopes. Maria's Plato is a favourite. Go in in your ski gear that's fine. It's quick. It's delicious. It's cheap (actually guys you should consider putting your prices up). Go there. Go early.... More

Ordered green chili tacos and adobada tacos. Amazing! Excellent guac and chips as well. Blew our expectations away. Highly recommended.

Lone Star has been a favorite for years. Depending on the fish they offer, fish tacos are something I usually get. I love the tamales, too. The staff are always friendly, and the service is fast. The only downside is the parking, which is complicated by the fact that so many people are oblivious to others...That's not Lone Star's fault,... More

The atmosphere is "active" - not quiet but not too noisy and it is sort of funky design. The tacos are very good, but not necessarily on par with what you might get in the best traditional Tex-Mex if you are used to California or Texas fare. That being said, the flavors are a bit different, and it seems healthy,... More
