Fodor's Review

It seems like sacrilege given that the place is in the desert, but a prominent magazine (Sunset) named Lone Star's signature fish tacos as "best in the western USA." Among the ordinary storefronts on busy Fort Union Boulevard, look for the lime-green building surrounded by a fence topped with old cowboy boots and fronted by an old sticker-covered car that looks as if it crashed through the fence. With concrete floors, metal tables, and bright umbrellas, the joint serves some excellent, cheap Mexican food—including house special fish tacos, handmade tamales, burritos of all types, and plenty of chilled Mexican beer. It seats less than 50, so fall back on the drive-through window for takeout, if necessary.
