Award-winning restaurant with quality produce
Manakau, 30 km south of Auckland’s CBD, offers up a cosmopolitan vibe for city-dwellers of all kinds. It’s also home to the largest Polynesian community globally. There’s plenty to do in the area, including wandering the Auckland Botanic Gardens, a little thrill-seeking at Rainbow’s End (New Zealand’s largest theme park), awe when taking in hundreds of colourful butterflies at Butterfly House, and if you’re travelling or just love planes, you’ll find Auckland International Airport and the New Zealand Warbirds Visitor Centre both nearby.
But it’s our team that makes Lone Star Manakau special. We’re lucky to have a diverse group who love nothing more than looking after you in our own, down-to-earth way. And guests are like family; we’re proud that you choose us for birthdays, parties, celebrations and corporate groups when creating lifelong memories.
We won the 2019 Lone Star ‘Franchisee of the Year’ award for our cosy, vibrant and friendly restaurant. And we serve nothing but quality produce, cooked to order.
Fresh air and your favourite cocktail
We’re right next to the Vodafone Events Centre, the Wero White Water Centre and the Ramada hotel. And with Westfield just down the road, we’ve got you covered however you’ve spent the day. You’ll love our extensive menu including the always-popular ribs, steaks and our famous Dixie Chicken.
Our restaurant seats 120 guests, including comfy booths and plenty of tables to enjoy everything that makes your experience a classic Lone Star one—music, great service and tasty food. We also have a discreet, semi-private dining area that’s perfect for those of you with big families, lots of work colleagues or large sport groups—celebrate together in your own space, at your own pace. If you prefer some fresh air, our spacious bar has an outdoor deck so you can enjoy your favourite Kiwi wine, beer or cocktail as the sun goes down.
