From the crew who runs Deep Ellum in Allston comes an adjoining taco bar that goes by the name of Lone Star, where the Texas inspired vibe is casual with an understated hipness. Look for the single hanging star on the exterior, and settle into a vintage wooden booth under a giant mounted bison head, or pull up a stool at the custom zinc bar backed by an impressive stock of tequilas and mezcal.
Margaritas like the smokey and spicy El Diabolo to the sweet and unsuspecting Chica Facile, shaken with aperol and orange bitters, are captivating. The tacos on housemade tortillas run the gamut from a crispy beer battered fish of the day to one that pairs grilled avocado with sweet corn relish and griddled queso, to heartier options like pork carnitas with salsa verde and Dallas spicy beef. Sides and starters to compliment the main attraction include a refreshing tuna ceviche, remarkable whole pickled jalapenos and grilled street corn bathed in a chili lime aioli and sprinkled with cojita.
