a legend is born
When you share a birthday with such luminaries as writers JB Priestley and Roald Dahl you know you’re destined to be different. So it is with the Lone Star which opened at 26 Manchester Street on September, 13th 1988, determined to create a different dining experience for the people of Christchurch.
The cowboy theme, rich in the history of frontiersmen and risk-takers, was exemplified by the walls of the restaurant literally dripping with western art and memorabilia. But that very theme provided the early Lone Star staff with a constant reminder of the unknown territory they were entering. For a start, many said the restaurant’s location, some way from the city centre, would discourage guests.
But it didn't. Perseverance paid off. It wasn’t long before people were coming in droves to dine at the Lone Star, to enjoy cool country music and to participate in an atmosphere that always suggested something very special was going down.
After 28 years, this is still the case. At Lone Star, a fun, unpretentious night out is guaranteed.
The Lone Star is famous for providing quality with quantity, using only the best and freshest local produce. It's not only the size of the meals that are memorable, the service too, is legendary. Your meals are served with a genuine smile in generous portions.
