Lone Star Steakhouse | Branson Dining
Pointe Royale Properties, Inc.
This time of year, I'm almost always too busy here at Pointe Royale to actually "leave" work on my dinner break. I usually just inhale some salad, or tuna, or chicken, and call it good enough. Fortunately for me, yesterday, I had enough coverage at the office that leaving property for an actual off site dinner break was possible. As I've mentioned before, I'm on the Atkins diet, so a low carb order is the order of the day. So, on those rare occasions that I actually do eat out, I'm usually looking for a steak, or some grilled shrimp or seafood.
I chose to head on up to the local Lone Star Steakhouse, over on Green Mountain Drive. I've eaten there before, but not in a couple of years, to be honest. I made the right choice. I sat down in the, obviously, Western (Texas) themed restaurant, and was soon greeted by a friendly server, and shortly thereafter, by a great tall glass of iced tea. I was trying to decide if I wanted a big steak, or one of the combos. I went with the steak & salmon combo, a choice I heartily recommend.
The steak was a 6 ounce, center cut sirloin, which I had them prepare medium. When it arrived, my server had me cut it, to insure that it was done to my liking. It was nice & pink through the middle, and, oh, so very juicy. I'd honestly say that it was the best steak I've had in a long time, even if it was only 6 ounces. Absolutely delicious.
The other half of the combo was the grilled salmon. I've had their salmon before, and it is wonderful. Tender, tasty, and prepared with a sweet bourbon glaze that really sets the taste buds on their ear, assuming taste buds have ears. I ate it after the steak, thinking I would get the best part first, but if anything, the salmon was even better than the steak.
Since I'm on the Atkins diet, I had to pass on the dinner rolls. (But I've had them before, and they are good, too.) I had the steamed broccoli, which was good, as good as greens get to a meat eater like me, and the dinner salad, minus the croûtons. The great thing about Atkins, is that, even though I'm limited to foods that are low in carbs, I still get to eat wonderfully tasty foods, and not ever go unsatisfied. And I was quite satisfied Thursday evening at Lone Star.
