The original outpost of the legendary cafe-come-bar group, Lone Star Manchester Street specialises in mighty meat dishes, killer cocktails and good vibes.

When Steve Ward and Tim Whelan founded it in 1988 they were on a mission to make restaurants fun and boy did they deliver. Think a classic party soundtrack, quirky menus featuring the likes of Stand By Your Lamb (slow-roasted lamb shoulder) and a hip team.

Enjoy grass-fed sirloin with buffalo chips (gluten-free fries are available) or free-range chicken topped with sweet, tangy cranberry salsa. Veggies and seafood lovers are well looked after too with a mouth-watering selection of dishes.

When it comes to drinks, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Choose from the best New Zealand wines & craft beers, and don’t miss the world famous frozen margaritas!

Service was amazing and the food pretty good too.
Started with said which was seasoned perfectly and a good size serving.
The mains Dixie Chicken Being tender and served with amazing coleslaw and crispy potatoes. The sauce was not too heavy though quite a lot of it and flooded the plate. The Johnnie Cash Stash chicken was also a generous serving and chicken was tender with great tasting sauce.
Staff were friendly and cheerful.
Definitely go back and try other dishes.

Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Lone Star Manchester Street . The waitress was very pleasant and helpful . The meal was reasonably fast . I ordered the prawn dish and my wife had salmon . Could not fault either and both good size . My wide ordered be
Banofy pie which was so large that the waitress brought out two spoons so that I could enjoy it as well . Will definitely return again soon as it was years ago that we were last there . I see that it has been there for 30 years and it was our favourite in the early days when we took our two children . My daughter always ordered ribs which were her favourite .

Exceptional dining experience with excellent service. The Paris Texas rib eye steak was simply divine with the onion jam & herb butter. Redneck ribs were delicious and portion sizes for both meals were huge. Will definitely be going back very soon!

Decided to book a First Table for my birthday lunch. On a midday Friday we had the bar area all to ourselves. My original choice of main was a steak sandwich that had GFO next to it on the menu, but I was told that to make it gluten-free they removed the bread and added additional chips and salad. I felt that would be disappointing so I instead chose the Paris Texas. This was 300g of tender steak (cooked rare for me) covered in onion jam and drowning in a delicious herb butter surrounded by super fluffy buffalo wedges. I added a side of mushrooms, and my drink was a Bounty Hunter (a cocktail made with Malibu, Baileys, Creme de Cacao, and chocolate syrup). Our wonderful waitress Sam gave us excellent service and when she found out it was my birthday she put a candle on top of my pavlova dessert!

My friend had the Prawn Star, and we both came away very full and happy with our meals and the pleasant ambience. The First Table discount meant I was able to pick off the menu without price checking everything and that was a great treat for my birthday. So glad that Lone Star has come on board, and I'm planning to be back again soon with friends. Thanks!
