Enjoy pork ribs slathered in spiced honey, chicken more than six ways and enough red meat to feed an entire ranch. There’s even a dedicated kids menu for your tiny Texan cowboys and girls.

Best ribs I’ve ever had, super saucy and massive amounts of meat on the ribs. Loved throwing the peanuts on the ground in the restaurant, sorry about the mess we made hahahah. Will be back for sure.

The staff where very friendly and great service.The ribs tender, succulent and enjoyable.The rib eye steak was honestly the best steak I have ever eaten it was so tender and melted in your mouth.We would definitely recommend this restaurant to all and my fellow diners are coming back for that steak next time.

Excellent dinner night!

My partner and I both ordered a full rack of pork ribs, both really tender. Small hiccup in one arriving with the wrong side (coleslaw instead of house salad), quickly rectified with a salad being brought on a separate plate.

Polite, friendly staff.

We will definitely be returning!

My partner and I enjoyed our time at Lonestar and if I could say one thing it would be you had better be hungry, The service was friendly and the food was yummy with large portions. This is a family friendly restaurant with lots of choice on offer.

Texas ribs just like up in the US! Great dinner with friends at Lone Star Rib House Kawana last night. Debbie and her staff made us feel welcome and catered to our needs. Steaks and ribs were all great and we enjoyed the generous portions. Even without the 50% off food per the First Table offer it would have been good value for money. We’ll be back!

Greeted promptly when we arrived and we got to choose where we wanted to sit, we chose outdoors so we could people watch. Waiter was happy and helpful. We chose the special, steak and ribs combo, so glad we did, it was delicious, the meat was cooked to perfection.
Prices were reasonable and great offers on food and drink, would definitely recommend to others.

My family and I always enjoy dining at the Lonestar. The food is excellent, they are always quick and prompt with your meals and the best thing is the staff are always friendly and the bottomless soft drink is really bottomless. The staff are always filling it up. Fantastic quality for a good price

We sat outside because someone at our table had a peanut allergy and there were actual peanuts literally all over the floor of the restaurant. (must be an American Steakhouse thing) This was an immediate worry, however the staff suggested we sit outside because there were no peanuts there. We moved to an outside table and promptly ordered some drinks which were good value and chilled us all out a bit :). We ordered the ribs which were generous serve and definitely yummy tender meat that fell off the bone. My wife ordered a salad with chicken and mushrooms. She said it was great. Overall really good value, and probably a good experience if you are into the peanut shells all over the American restaurant floor thing. For us this was a surprise, but we would say we liked the vibe of the place and the value we received.

We went on Christmas eve and could tell they were under staffed immediately, service was poor and very slow. We waited an hour for 2 of our 3 entrees to come out. Then once 2 of our 4 mains (one serve of ribs with the wrong sauce) finally arrived later the 3rd entree came too. No sign of our other 2 mains (one a kids meal) so we waited a while before asking, we were told it wouldn't be long but the waiting went on and on and the other mains were eaten long ago. We ended up cancelling the other 2 mains and leaving as we just could not wait around any longer. We were very disappointed. Perhaps on a normal day with more staff would be ok.

Very nice, good staff, food ok, location ok.

Had a lovely time with the Significant Other. Tucked into a generous portion of moreish ribs. Not to mention the excellent service from start to finish.

Having wanted to go to Lone Star for many years, this was my opportunity to finally experience now that there is one at Kawana. We were greeted and asked as to where we wanted to sit, inside or out and then shown to a table at the back of the restaurant with videos to view from either side of the table and a bucket of peanuts to eat while sorting out our meals from the menu. The peanuts have to be shelled, and some say you are to put the shells on the floor. The menu is extensive and it took a while to consider it all. There was about four staff members who asked if we needed to order drinks or meals while we were reading it. We placed our drink orders quickly and then finally placed our orders, beef ribs with vegetables and sweet potato; a rib eye with their special chips and vegetables; a rump with the special chips and salad. The steaks were really good, cooked exactly as requested and delicious; while the beef ribs were good, but possibly could have been cooked a little longer and had a little more sauce. Overall it was a good dinner.

We had an early Christmas catchup with family at the Lonestar. Convenient location, super friendly staff and heaps of food. You won't go hungry! Really enjoyed the night.

First Table is a great option when having a quick bite before seeing a movie! Lone Star was just the ticket for that. Recommend it!

I had the outstanding T-bone with a very fresh green salad and baked potato. The cold slaw on the calamari plate was also very fresh.

We definitely will come again!
Keep up the good work, Lone star!
