LONE STAR history
Our philosophy has always been that dining out should be fun and value for money. The original menu in 1988 was a combination of comfort food, Kiwi classics and a few Lone Star originals. Some of these dishes from that first menu are still being served today and are as popular as ever. Dishes like the Lassoo of Hog, Dixie Chicken and the iconic Redneck Ribs prove that food fads come and go but good food never goes out of fashion.
The cowboy theme, rich in the history of frontiersmen and risk-takers, was exemplified by the walls of the original Manchester St Café in Christchurch, literally dripping with western art and memorabilia. But that very theme provided the early Lone Star staff with a constant reminder of the unknown territory they were entering. Today, people keep coming in droves to dine at the Lone Star throughout the country, to enjoy cool Country music and to participate in an atmosphere that always suggested that something very special was going down.
Lone Star menu is extensive and reflects the HUGE heart, passion and appetite of Lone Star staff and patrons alike to enjoy hearty satisfying food. Entrees, mains, vegetarian, kiwi kids and desserts.
The Ponderosa is exclusive to Lone Star Timaru and the obvious choice for YOUR NEXT FUNCTION. Looking for somewhere to get together and celebrate that special occasion, Christmas party or host that corporate event? The Ponderosa is the place - UNFORGETTABLE!
