We dined here whilst on holiday in Auckland - we have eaten at many Lonestars and this one was by far the best - amazing service and the food was awesome well done guys. The only negative for me was i only ordered 9 ribs i should have ordered 12 lol.

A large group well looked after by wait staff, both with food and drinks. Always enjoy the quantity as well as the quality of the food here.

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 sauce, chips and coleslaw. And to wash it all down with a NZ Steinlarger made... More

Having not been to a Lone Star in quite a while, we made this another excuse to eat out while in Newmarket. Yes, the usual atmosphere is there, and the waitress was fun, but the ribs (two of us ordered them) were just great. Juicy, fall off the bone - it almost seemed too much. But we did it! Quite...

Very expensive for average food. The food wasn't the best or the worst I've eaten. Though the service was lovely, If Lone Star lowered their prices then I would recommend going.

Great place to eat with friends, however, just a little bit noisy but besides that the food and service were excellent.

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.
