Lone Star Taqueria in Holladay, Utah


It's kind of funny how we/I discovered Lone Star Taqueria.
In 2003, Mark and I had a few "breaks" in our dating relationship. This particular break was like fate for us. On a particular break I went on a blind lunch-date with another man. I remember he had a red car and he was balding. But more importantly I remember that he took me to Lone Star Taqueria. I'm pretty sure I ordered a tamale, and I'm pretty sure I hadn't expected to fall head over heels....for a restaurant. When I think back, I picture myself immersed in my eating experience, looking at my date, and not hearing a word he said because I was enjoying each and every bite--I was in my own little world. I may, or may not have, thought about Mark and how much I knew he'd love this place. Long story short, Mark and I soon got back together (thankfully) and we invited Lone Star to be part of our relationship (thankfully).

It had always been a fairly busy place with a steady flow of customers, but on this day, we discovered that it truly has attracted the masses. As you can see, the drive-thru line is out to Ft. Union Boulevard and the parking lot is packed. We had to park in the bank parking lot just East of Lone Star.

Check out that list of tacos. There's no wrong answer.

Their fresh chips are thick and crispy, so there's no going soggy with these nachos.

Oh how I love a good tamale. This particular beef tamale sets the high bar. I'm certain it's the best tamale in the state. I like to dip each bite in the little cup of jalapeno mayo. 

Lone Star Taqueria has incredible flavors, awesome service, and lots of charm. Try the tamale, or of course, try the tacos.......try everything!
