Now a stalwart of the dining scene, Lone Star has been slinging tacos with aplomb for as long as we can remember. The casual atmosphere makes it a perfect place to swing by for a delicious lunch or Summery evening on the patio.

This fine dining establishment was first helmed by French chef Franck Peissel. After Peissel’s departure for pastures new, the restaurant continued under his name; these days chefs Adam Vickers an Robert Perkins are at the helm. The duo put out a creative and innovative menu that’s the boldest and brightest outside of the downtown SLC bright lights.
