For The Sun NewsJune 20, 2014 

The Star Tavern, located at 4310 McCorsley Ave. in Little River in the former site of Rubi’s Texas Grille, opened May 5 offering “home-style comfort food” for lunch and dinner six days per week. With its red and blue exterior, the tavern can be seen to the east while traveling U.S. 17.

Owner Ron Johnson, a Whiteville, N.C., native, kept most of Rubi’s interior, including wood floors, walls and booths. Operating hours are 11 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday.

Diners can choose from a daily “Blues Plate” special of one meat and three vegetables, or order from a regular menu that includes sandwiches, steak and seafood, which is served broiled as well as fried.

Meat-and-three meals – the entrée is different each day of the week – run $8.95 for lunch and dinner. Tea and coffee are free for lunch only. Menu prices range from $2.95 for a hot dog to $17 for the tavern’s best steak. Prime rib is offered on Fridays and Saturdays.

Johnson said the tavern is attempting to have a variety of live music Wednesdays through Saturdays. A full selection of beverages, including alcoholic products, is available.
