The quintessential fish tacos – You basically get lured in by the station wagon parked in front with the stickers all over it and the umbrellas in the back seat. It's a colorful joint.

Yet it's the antithesis of the Cafe Rio craze. Yes, that means smaller portions. And tacos that aren't totally dripping wet. Nor are they stuffed with cilantro. But there's something light and easy about them. Take two of these and you'll feel totally sublime.

Great Food - authenic Mexican cuisine. – I live in the area and I have found the food to be very good, very well done Mexican Food - may be the best in Salt Lake City. The key issue is that the staff seems to be so comfortable with their jobs that they fail to deliver high customer service. As good as the food is there is a point that it may not be worth going there if one finds negative or hostile staff at the counter and through the drive in. I am not sure if it is anti American or if they just like playing games.

RUDE SERVICE!! – I went through Lone Star Drive-thru and was treated absolutely terrible! First of all the gentleman before me was treated lousy also, the young girl with glasses that worked the window yelled at the customer to hurry up and sarcatically said "HELLOOO..." The gentelman pulled to the side and left the restaurant mad without his order! Then my turn came, I ordered 2 fish tacos and then proceeded to the window. I got my meal and then asked for some sour cream, I was charged $1 (then later found out it was only $ .50) After I paid I checked the bag for utensils and there were'nt any, so I asked them for some and the young girl rushingly and rudely said ANYTHING ELSE ?? I was appalled then her and the cook who has nicely helped me before exchange some words in Spanish about me, words that I can't even post, attacking my intelligence and calling me obscene names! Little did they know that I am Hispanic myself and also fluent in Spanish! Then I looked at her and said "excuse me..?" Then she shut the window on my face, turned her back towards me, folded her arms as if she had a reason to be mad, and proceeded talking to the cook! I am very dissapointed because I love this place usually, the food is amazing and the prices are great, but with service like that I will not be returning to Lone Star unless she is terminated, which is a shame!

The BEST fish tacos! – I live right down the road from Lone Star and I bet I come here about 4 times a month!!!! I never change my selection. Its always 2 fish tacos, they are amazing. They are the only fish tacos I trust in Utah :)

My mom gets the Summer salad a lot too, with or without chicken or steak...its AWESOME.

I've never been unsatisfied with this place and I've been coming here since I moved here in 2001. It looks like a little hole in the wall, but its so fun and family owned.

Gotta love the fish! – Wicked tasty fish (the daily special was red snapper) - the tacos are as good as claimed, but the winner was the fresh salad topped with jalapeno dressing and fish. Hearty portions, friendly service, super bright decor and equally funky patrons. It's a bit far south from downtown for an everyday lunch stop, but it was totally worth the drive!

Awesome food and friendly staff!! – The burritos are huge and very very good!! Can't pick one that is better, they are all good... yes I have tried them all.

Tacos are all very very good, but the fish tacos are the best..

There is a dish I discovered, not sure what the name is exactly, but someones Plato... I'm a big guy, (bigger since I discovered this place) and it fills me up every time.

I forget the head cooks name, but he is always very nice and funny... Susan is an incredible lady, I'm so glad to see her when I visit...

I just can't get enough! – Lone Star is wonderful! All the food is great and the services is fast and friendly. Ingredients are fresh and food is served hot. Burritos are HUGE... i recommend only getting 1/2. Jalapeno Mayo is good.
