Evil Penevil posted a topic in Restaurants, Cafe's, Take Aways & Nightlife VenuesI ate at the Lone Star Texas Grill on Soi Lengkee (LK Metro area) last night. Here's the meal I had: The corn chips and dip were complementary and came with the beer. The chips were homemade and very good. It would have been better with a little salsa instead of the dip, but that's no biggy considering it was complementary. I ordered the Sunday special, which was fillet steak for 199 baht. I ordered a medium potato salad (60 baht) and corn on the cob (40 baht) as sides. I don't remember exactly how much the San Miguel Light was, but I think 70 or 80 baht. EDIT IN: The owner of the Lone Star has said on another board that there was some confusion on the part of his staff and the daily specials should include two sides as part of the 199-baht price. He also agreed the corn chips should come with salsa and that the steak should have been grilled better. He's taken some constructive criticism to heart. Assuming the next time a customer orders a fillet steak for 199 baht and gets two side dishes as well as an attractively grilled steak, then that would be a bargain in the hard-to-beat category.. I ordered the steak rare and it wasn't overcooked. It was tender and for local beef, tasty. My only criticism would be that the grill wasn't hot enough or the cook took the steak off too quickly. It could have done with a bit more surface "char," which would have given it a better color and would have imparted more of the charcoal grill flavor, but wouldn't have cooked the meat too much on the inside. The potato salad was good - it wasn't overpowered by the dressing - and it was a generous portion for medium. The corn was properly cooked and tasted fresh. I thought the meal was well worth the price I paid - 300 baht for the food. It was good value - and taste - for the money. You have to be realistic in your expectations. Better steaks (imported Australian beef) are available at the Lone Star and elsewhere in Pattaya, but you'll pay more than 199 baht for them. For what I got, the price was very reasonable. I had no problems with the service. The food came quickly and with a smile. The waitress had explained to me that the special only included the steak and sides had to be ordered separately. She also tried to tell me something about the sauce or gravy, but I couldn't make out what she saying. I certainly don't want gravy with a charcoal grilled steak and thankfully, it came in a boat. I didn't bother to taste it. The next time I visit the Lone Star I'll try the ribs. That's what most of the other customers (it was about half-full at 8 p.m. last night) appeared to be having. The restaurant has Tex Mex and Mexican food as well as a variety of steaks and several types of smoked ribs. There are daily specials for 179 or 199 baht for the budget minded. If your TG doesn't like farang food, the Lone Star offers Thai dishes as well. I'm not much worried about a restaurant's decor, especially when I'm eating alone. But the Lone Star is a relatively new place (been open a few months) and it was clean, comfortable and well lit, with colorful accents on and along the walls. Evil Some other pics from the Lone Star:
tequilareef posted a topic in Restaurants, Cafe's, Take Aways & Nightlife VenuesTequila Reef Pattaya has been around since April of 2000 and it's original founder and owner my father passed away April 20, 2017 after succumbing to a six-month bout with liver cancer. I have taken over full ownership of the Reef in Pattaya and have personally undergone some much needed dramatic changes to our core menu items. I could not have done this without the help of a 30-year Texan friend of mine who ironically owned his own Mexican restaurant in Chiang Mai known as the Mexican Grill. We are constantly working on every aspect of the business including adding some additional items which are coming very soon. That I shall leave a secret for now but rest assured we shall be giving it away in the beginning. A new menu is also in the works along with promotional material. I am now confident enough to post about Tequila Reef Pattaya and I hope those of you who might have had bad experiences in the past give us another try. All your comments good bad or indifferent are welcome so we may better serve you, the valued customer. We are constantly looking to improve everything making the best possible food for everyone to enjoy. I know that's an impossible task but nonetheless our goal. Here are a few photos with much more to come in the future. Remember all Pattaya Addicts members receive a 10% discount. Hope to see you around
Baloo22 posted a topic in Restaurants, Cafe's, Take Aways & Nightlife VenuesI have eaten at Sam's several times. It's a nice place with good food. I go there when I feel the need for standard American comfort food or some Mexican food. Not the cheapest place around, but IMHO serves good quality food. The owner, Sam, is a hands-on type owner. Which, I am learning, makes all the difference for quality food in restaurants here in Pattaya/Jomtien. Nice guy and easy to talk to. He was a long-time resident of San Diego, CA. I am not an "expert" on Mexican food so I am not going to comment on the "authenticity" of any of the Mexican dishes. Each person has differing tastes anyway. A little difficult to find. It is in Soi "Jomtien Plaza", Jomtien. If coming south from Pattaya,don't turn right towards Jomtien beach but go straight past the Hanuman Statue for about 80-100m and turn right (directly opposite Dine from 99 baht). That's Jomtien Plaza. Sam's is almost at the end and is on the right-hand side.
