Lone Star has always been a favourite spot for my wife and kids, but recently it hasn't been living up to our expectations. We visit the newmarket branch quite frequently, but the food was undercooked, and our waitress Eden was disinterested at best. When my...More

Service great. Attentive staff. Food very average. Extremely dry and tasteless vegetarian burrito. Super saturated coleslaw. We went here a few years ago, it hasn't improved.

Had a lovely meal here at Lonestar. The redneck ribs were quite spectacular with it being charred ever so slightly and the sauce covering every mosel of the meat to make for an appetizing meal. The Apache fish was equally good with their classic tartar...More

You’ll find the Auckland Lone Star deep in the heart of cultural Newmarket. Known to Maori as “te Ti Tutahi “or “the Sacred Cabbage Tree Stands Alone”, But it actually acquired its name from the cattle markets established there back in the 1850’s.Our Café caters for up to 150 guests, and in addition, we offer a private function room that will comfortably accommodate another 55. We have a projector for sports events, and this room is perfect for that social occasion, corporate needs, or just a loud Thursday.Absolutely no need to worry about finding a park at LoneStar Newmarket- we have 2 parking buildings nearby-one right next door(entry by Khyber Pass) and another across the road on Kent Street.The Rialto and Village cinemas are a stones throw away. Children always welcome.
