Lone Star has been around in Pickering for over 20 years it seems, and it is still a decent restaurant. The staff are very friendly and always attentive to your needs. Since there are few Tex Mex options in the area, it satisfies the craving....More

Our favourite dining spot. We had the fajitas and Lone Star salad. Great service. We don't mind paying for the chips and salsa, it's great the money goes back to a local charity.

Description
Our famous fajitas are served up fresh - from the warm flour tortillas to the guacamole and the salsa. Wood fire grilled AAA steaks and smokehouse ribs are all prepared in the barbecue pit. Lone Star guarantees great food, warm southern hospitality, and a good time. We are Canada's only authentic Texas restaurant - the real deal...TEXAS to the BONE!
