In spite of it's name Lone Star opened its first restaurant in October 1989 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and most of the 295 restaurants are in the Great Lakes and east coast areas. None in Texas.
They are allied with 3 other chains - Sullivan's Steakhouse (15 restaurants that emphasize jazz), Double Eagle Steakhouse (6 restaurants), and Texas Land & Cattle (20 restaurants 19 of which are in TX). We ate at Texas Land & Cattle in Frisco, but I don't know the other two restaurants.
Lone Star used to be the steakhouse that had a bucket of peanuts on the table and you threw the shells on the floor. The powers that be have decided that this is a safety hazard, so they still have the buckets, but no longer throw them on the ground.

Favorite Dish: We went out tonight (Aug 04) and didn't feel like we wanted much to eat. I had a steak and shrimp dinner - 7 oz steak, 5 fried shrimp, a large sweet potato and a lettuce wedge (another signature dish) for $13.99, and Bob had a half rack of ribs with fries. They gave us a little loaf of dark bread, and we drank iced tea.
Their website says, "The exciting and vibrant atmosphere created by the restaurants' "Texas Roadhouse" ambiance is enhanced by specially selected upbeat country western music and neon signs. The decor includes planked wooden floors, "dim lighting," flags and other Texas memorabilia, all of which enhance the casual dining experience and establish a distinct identity for our concept. Lone Star is further distinguished by its high quality, USDA choice-graded steaks which are hand-cut fresh daily at each restaurant and mesquite grilled to order. "
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
