With more stools than tables and a bunch of really good margaritas and micheladas, Lone Star feels more like a bar that sells tacos than a taco place. That makes sense given that it’s the sister restaurant of Deep Ellum, one of the best bars in Allston (and in this case, they’re kind of like conjoined sisters, given that you can walk from one to the other without going outside. But that said, the food shouldn’t be overlooked here. The tacos are pretty big, the guacamole is solid, and the street corn is outstanding.
