Two hour wait, then felt like we were eating in a zoo. If you want a night that’s slightly special you’d be better off at McDonalds than this place. Food was ok, staff friendly enough but what an absolutely awful experience. Had a bad time...More

First visit to Lone Star while visiting from UK. It's a firm favourite with friends and family in Dunedin, and it didn't disappoint. Something on the menu for everyone, including kids. Friendly service. Will go again next time we're in NZ!

Great selection of American-fusion/Tex-Mex cuisine, good food, friendly service. Good beer selection both on and off tap. Only negative was that four of the menu items had sold out.

Can't say enough about our experience. Food was amazing and reasonable priced- big portions. Staff were the best part of the experience, so friendly and accommodating to our large, last minute booking. Seriously cant rate these guys enough. Thanks for a great night!

Top notch service, short wait times and incredible food. What more could you ask for? Great banter and a good laugh of course! And that’s exactly what we got with the main man Levi. Ask for him by name. Such an awesome dude. Cheers mate!!
