Friday Favourites: Ribs

For some crazy ass reason, ribs aren’t popular around these parts. For my fill of Flintstone style ribs, I always go to Lonestar.

Lonestar restaurants have an American cowboy theme in decor and menu. They are consistent in their food and service and have 21 restaurants in New Zealand. I’ve been to 3 of their restaurants and found them to be very similar. Their meals are not cheap, but they are massive, so it is value for money. I do wonder if their portions are Americanised portions?

I can comfortably eat 6 ribs for dinner including a bit of the sides that they come with. Too bad their smallest main order of ribs is 9 ribs.

I’ve tried a few other things on their menu. Not recommended. Just come to Lonestar for the ribs. You will not be disappointed. If you order something else from their menu and you don’t like it, it’s your own damn fault.


A massive serving of nine or twelve pork ribs piled high, blanched in honey & spices, then blasted in the Lone Star furnace & served smothered with our classic hoisin, orange & sesame seed sauce. Served with Lone Star coleslaw & buffalo chips…. A Lone Star Legend.

$29.50 for nine or $37 for twelve (New Zealand dollars)
