I showed a little of the beautiful old building that house the rooms of Lonestar BBQ & Mercantile.  Today I am showing you some of the inside of these buildings with my pictures.  I apologize in advance for the poor quality but hope that you have some idea of what is inside.  Enjoy your picture tour of the inside.

A bright and cheerful place.

I'll leave you now and hope you enjoyed the inside.
