When cowboys in the Old West ran out of propane for their bison-pulled RVs, they kept warm by lining their stomachs with ridiculously hot chili. Today’s Groupon will keep Minnesotans cozy through cold, coyote-infested nights. For $10, you get $25 worth of flavorful Southwestern fare and drinks at Lone Spur Grill and Bar, located in Hopkins. With a fun, south-of-the-border atmosphere and convenient horse parking, Lone Spur is a great place to go for authentic Tex-Mex cuisine, drinks, and windows.
Lone Spur’s menu offers a massive selection of tasty eats known to spark spontaneous “Yeehaws” and unprintable Deadwood quotes from dining city slickers. Master cooks harness a slow-cooking heat to ensure that each brisket emerges from the pit 14 hours later in a delicious smoky cloud that won't try to kill you like the monster from your favorite island program. After a lunch of sandwiches and ol’ Mexico bites such as the buffalo burger ($9.50), brisket melt ($7.95), and lunch taco burrito ($7.75), you can ride back through town for some dinner barbecue (any two meats, $12.95; any three meats, $15.95), which includes Texas toast; a choice of cole slaw, potato salad, or soup; and a choice of seasoned steak fries, ranch house beans, cornbread, or baked potato with your beef, pork, or poultry order. If you still miss the danger of high noon shoot-outs, Lone Spur offers a chili so hot it requires a signed release before consumption. And if you can't take the heat, try the smoked sautéed pork barbecue ($11.45, Texas size $13.95) or three pounds of turkey leg ($12.95) instead. For dessert, dive into a hot fudge brownie stampede ($4.99) or Texas saucy banana ($4.99), just like real cowboys did before they settled in for a night of pillow fights and painting each other's nails.
- Ever since my wife and I visited San Antonio we have been looking for a local place that had some of the same quality Tex Mex we had there. I am happy to say Lone Spur is one of the closest restaurants we have found that resembles those great spots in Texas. The Brisket is amazing. They incorporate it into many different dishes and the portions are defintley [sic] hefty. – gopher02, Citysearch
- The fajitas are very flavorful and the atmosphere is super kitschy. – Ryan, Google Maps
- This is a great neighborhood place to grab lunch,dinner [sic] or a drink. The bar is comfortable and never extremely packed. Both the bar side and the restaurant have good service and offer the same full menu. – Karri H., Insider Pages
