Lone Star hosts a multitude of special activities and events on a year-round basis. They include featured holiday dinners, special seasonal menus, yard sales, bluegrass or country music entertainment virtually every Saturday night, and country music and bluegrass festivals on Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekends.

Okay, we know it sounds a little odd, but when you visit this little shop we know you’ll understand why we have it listed. During the 1940’s and 1950’s, many pharmacies in town and throughout the USA had soda fountains and snack bars. It was a common place for Granddads to visit early in the morning for coffee and laughs, and for Grandsons to treat their girlfriends to a milkshake after school. They continue this distinctly American tradition at Sumter Cut Rate. They are open for breakfast and Lunch, featuring Beef Brisket and Soda Fountain Ice Cream Favorites.
