Lone Star Taco Bar

Lone Star Brunch Menu

Yesterday I tried Lone Star Taco Bar‘s new weekday brunch with the Boston Brunchers. I had been to Lone Star Taco Bar once before, just a couple of months ago, but had a strange experience. It was a Saturday night and the wait was probably twice as long as the hour they told us it would be. By the time we sat down, we were definitely a few drinks deep, the seating was uncomfortably cramped, and we were absolutely starving. I remember that the food was tasty, but we didn’t get a chance to really enjoy it!

I was glad to return to Lone Star Taco Bar and try the food again, especially because I always hear nothing but good things about it.

When we sat down, we were given both the brunch and regular menu. They sent us a bunch of appetizers to share, and then we ordered what we wanted off of either menu.

Please note that all food was complimentary, but the opinions are my own.

Guacamole

The Guacamole tasted fresh and the avocados seemed perfectly ripe, but I thought it needed a touch more salt.

Chili con Queso

The Chili con Queso was dangerously addicting. It’s hard to argue with with spicy, melty cheese.

Grilled Sweet Corn

The Grilled Sweet Corn was coated in a chili lime aioli and then dusted with cojita cheese and cilantro. While I didn’t detect much lime flavor, there was extra on the side to squeeze onto the corn. Instead though, I opted to top mine with their house made Sweet Potato Habanero Hot Sauce that was on the table – I wish I could buy a bottle of this!

Ceviche

The Tuna Ceviche was a huge hit with everyone at our table. The tuna was very lightly marinated in lime juice and tossed with crunchy bell pepper and mango. It was light and refreshing, which was a nice contrast to the rich appetizers we had been eating so far.

Sonoran Dog

We all shared a bite of the Sonoran Dog, which was one of the daily specials. Its descrption is part ridiculous, part amazing: Bacon wrapped deep fried hot dog with avocado crema, salsa fresco, refried beans, longhorn cheese, mustard, and mayo. My only complaint is that all the delicious toppings and thick, buttery bun overwhelmed the poor little hot dog.

Jalapeno Corncakes

We also shared the Jalapeno Corncakes. They were crisp and buttery on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, and studded with fresh corn kernels. Simple and flawless.

House Pickled Jalapenos

We shared a couple orders of the House Pickled Jalapenos to eat with our entrees. I was glad that everyone at the table enjoys spicy food as much as I do!

Grilled Avocado with Griddled Queso Taco

I ordered two tacos, which turned out to be more than enough food. The first was the Grilled Avocado with Griddled Queso Taco. The salsa verde and corn relish made it very messy to eat, but totally worth it because it tasted incredible. The griddled queso was crisp, oozy on the inside, but firm enough to hold its own in the taco.

Breakfast Tacos

I also had one of these Breakfast Tacos, which was scrambled eggs, longhorn cheese, avocado crema, and roasted salsa on a flour tortilla. I enjoyed it, but definitely preferred the more unique flavors and textures in the griddled queso taco. I also thought the eggs were a little overcooked, though I’m kind of a stickler about liking soft scrambled eggs.

Beef Tongue Taco

I snapped photos and tried a little bite of some of the other dishes that were ordered. I really enjoyed the small bite of the thinly shaved meat I tried from the Corned Beef Tongue Taco, and Renee gave it rave reviews.

Huevos Rancheros

The Huevos Rancheros came with a wonderful tangy sauce that we all loved. And that’s when I hit my limit. I was so full, but the rest looked delicious.

Ensalada de la Casa

Ensalada de la Casa with bib lettuce, hearts of palm, cactus, avocado, grapefruit, pickled onion, pepitas, and a mango-lime vinaigrette.

House Made Chorizo Taco

House Made Chorizo Taco with pickled radish, queso fresco, and mint.

Fish Taco

Baja Fish Taco with beer battered white fish, pickled cabbage slaw, and chili mango aioli.

I’m glad I now know for sure that Lone Star Taco Bar is worth the trip to the other side of the river. I’d definitely go back for brunch to avoid the evening crowds and have a much more relaxing experience. Thank you, Lone Star, for hosting us!

    I wish I could have gone to this brunch! I love Lone Star, but I’ve never tried their brunch menu. I have tried the jalapenos and queso and fish tacos – I agree, SO good! Also, that hot dog sounds crazy.
