I've eaten at Lonestar numerous times without incidident, but ever since my anxiety got severe I haven't eaten at many restaurants with the exception of Swiss Chalet.

I called Lonestar a few months ago and whoever answered said they couldn't guarantee and so I hung up and just put it out of my head since my anxiety was bad, but I've been getting a lot better and I just called again and the server said that it shouldn't be a problem, that I should let my server know and there would be plenty of options.

That being said, I know I'll be fine but how do you all feel about Lonestar? Also, I just looked at the menu online and actually don't see any items with nuts... I'm sure the desserts are may contains.

I disagree about Swiss Chalet... every restaurant is different but they definitely went the extra mile for me...


I talked to the manager, she came to see me, assured me that my meal was made safely and away from anything with nuts. At the Swiss Chalet near me there are only 2 salads made with nuts.

Really? Lucky. Last time I was there, they flat out refused to tell me what type of oil they were using to cook. So I left.

I have taken my peanut/nut allergic son to Lonestar in Pickering and Whitby many times. Most times, without our asking, the manager has come to our table to address the allergy and reassure us that they are aware. You can always ask to speak to the manager about any allergy concerns you may have. We always skip the desserts, just in case. Never had any problems at either location and we've been going there for several years now.
