Good Guac but Overpriced. Just 2 Steps Above "Del Taco."
With all the online hype, we figured we had to try Lone Star (when do you see a '92% like it' rating for a little taqueria?) So we drove unfamiliar roads and pulled up to an admittedly cool little dive. Upturned cowboy boots on the fence posts, bright colors, a young, cool crowd sitting at the tables outside...needless to say my expectations were high.
Having been to Mexico many times and eaten on the street there, I have to say this came pretty close to the vibe I get in Cozumel or Cancun. It was decently crowded for a Monday night and the staff were all shouting Spanish, so I considered this a good sign.
Maybe my expectations were too high after seeing a rare 92% rating and reviewed by so many people, but I found the food to be overpriced (our bill for just the two of us was $20 and we have no idea why) and just decent. The guacamole was admittedly very good, and I'm picky about my guac. But the fish tacos were just 2 steps above Del Taco...if I lived in the area, I guess I'd pop in here for the quick mexican food-fix, but it's not worth the drive. I'm still partial to Red Iguana if I'm going to end up spending $20 just to get 2 little fish tacos, some guac, and 2 little bean tacos. It would be a great quick lunch place, but hardly something I would return to again and again. Fun outdoor dining though. (3 out of 5 stars)
Sidenote...call me a a child of the 90's but I was probably more excited about the Jurassic Park Jeep we saw on the way there than I was about the tacos we ate.
Where's the dinosaurs??
