Grab your hat and rev up the Mustang for a meal at Lone Star, a bar come restaurant that celebrates the very best of Kiwi cowboy culture.
The New Lynn outpost of the much-loved franchise (which was founded in 1988), opened in 2004 in the ‘ceramic house’, a quirky building from the 1960s which boasts more bricks than any other in Australasia! Don’t forget to start your night with a cold beer on the deck in the shade of West Auckland's biggest pohutukawa tree.
Fill up before your rodeo with stacks of quality meat, all highly sourced and expertly grilled. Enjoy pork ribs slathered in spiced honey, chicken more than six ways and enough red meat to feed an entire crew of cowboys. Crowd-pleasers include tiger prawn cutlets sautéed in garlic, chilli and coriander butter and slow-roasted lamb shoulder with fluffy feta mash.
Not a carnivore? No problem, there are plenty of mouthwatering veggie options to choose from, including a burrito overflowing with spicy beans and salsa. And an excellent kids menu will keep your cowboys in training very happy.
The extensive drinks list covers all manner of sins, from wines to whiskies, with plenty of beers and cocktails thrown in.
