Lone Star recipes - the easy way to prepare the best dishes from the Lone Star Steak House menu. These are copycat recipes, not necessarily made the same way as they are prepared at Lone Star, but closely modeled on the flavors and textures of Lone Star popular food, so you can bring these exotic tastes to your own table for a fraction of the cost.

In 1989 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Lone Star Steak House & Saloon was founded as a casual dining option for steaks and seafood. The company currently operates over 150 locations in the US and, at one time, had as many as 21 locations across Australia.

From Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits to Buffalo Wild Wings hot sauce, chain and franchise restaurants are popular destinations around the world. Eating out too frequently can be costly, not to mention that it's hard to control portion size, ingredients, or the style of cooking to suit your preferences.

Making Lone Star recipes on your own allows you to save money while enjoying your favorite menu items from the casual dining spot. This list collections the best copycat Lone Star recipes from around the Web.
