The decor of the Lone Star Saloon helps the joint live up to its Southwestern-themed moniker. Plastic cacti sprout from pots placed along the wood-plank floor; painted images of cattle drives adorn the walls; and the many liquor bottles, situated in the middle of the long bar, are flanked by the heads of two trophy bucks. Lone Star features six beers on tap, including Samuel Adams, Blue Moon as well as the eponymous Lone Star Red-brewed especially for the joint by the fine folks at the Firestone Walker craft brewery. Of course you couldn't call it a saloon if there weren't Toby Keith songs rocking through the speakers. So belly up, and take a load off.
Coconut Shrimp (new menu item) is six coconut-breaded shrimp served with sweet pepper dipping sauce. This dish is all about the shrimp. The coconut and very little breading coated the outside and were fried to a perfect golden brown. The coconut flavor expertly complemented the shrimp by adding a slight sweetness. Texture was crispy on the outside with succulent, juicy shrimp on the inside. The dipping sauce was sweet but not too sweet with fresh, sweet bell pepper flavor. The presentation, however, needs a little work – either use a smaller plate or increase the serving to 8 shrimp to fill the plate better. Thumbs up!
Sweet Bourbon Salmon® is a tender, mesquite-grilled salmon fillet in Sweet Bourbon marinade and includes your choice of one side. The salmon had wonderful mesquite grill marks on the outside with a tender, succulent interior. The bourbon flavor came through and the marinade tasted slightly of Asian influence, like teriyaki and ginger. It worked really well with the salmon. Maybe a secondary sauce choice for the baby back ribs? Just an idea. The spinach was steamed to a bright green color and flavor. Thumbs up!
