We had fish and chips. The batter was thin but not crispy. The fish was a little overdone. Two days later I had fish and chips at the RSA and it was crispy and juicy. I wouldn't return again.

We shared a nice garlic loaf. I enjoyed a very nice Pork spare rib. The ribs were fantastic and the coleslaw was just wonderful. The sunflower seeds in the slaw was just perfect and really topped a lovely meal.

I have always loved lone star however this visit was disappointing. I had the special dessert and it was not nice. When I explained this to the staff they said "that is a shame" and walked away.
