Not associated with downtown Houston's beloved Lone Star Saloon dive bar, this country-western bar in Richmond has some colorful history of its own. It was originally housed in a historic 120-year-old building that burned down in 2008; the current Lone Star Saloon was resurrected in the fall of 2009 in the form of a large one-room bar/nightclub with a stage for live music, dance floor and upstairs loft that can be reserved for private parties.
Lone Star serves up burgers, wings and other bar food, along with 12 beers on tap, and being outside Houston customers can smoke here while watching live country music Thursdays through Saturdays. Tuesday is steak night and Wednesday is ladies' night with free Internet jukebox access; sit out on the patio and watch a train come rolling through often, as tracks are located close to the bar.
