Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely place to get together for six oldies, drinks were enjoyed. . GF meals for two diners were lovely as were the three other meals. But the salad meal was a disappointment to the diner: not enough salad greens, too many croutons and not enough...anchovies. We will be back.More

Thit was my second to this restaurant, the portion of each dish was sizable and yummy. However, the waiting time was extremely long in both occasions, more than 30 minutes, not very happy about that.

We often go the Lonestar, as the food all aways very consistent, and this visit was no different. The wait staff were great, however when I ordered my meal, I asked for the Kiwi Joker to be added to my Dixie Chicken, and on this...occasion, I was told that I couldn't have this on my Dixie chicken, as I needed to order the steak to request the Kiwi Joker. I was disappointed, as I have always got this and it has never been a problem in the past. Might go to a different Lonestar next time :-(More
