Over hyped and not worth the money.

Avoid at all cost!! The food was not worth the price: cream corn tasted like pickles, pork was under cooked, BBQ sauces tasted terrible and they didn't have any chicken thighs or pork ribs by 4pm and wont substitute something else in to the order so you have to order the more expensive meal.

Had the family meal here so got to try a lot of things. Service was very prompt and friendly. Fun place to eat - off of butcher paper. I felt the pork ribs were tough, and I had to peel the bark off to eat them. Did not enjoy the ribs. Now the cherry glazed ribs were a little sweet... More

It's not the best but it's not the worst either. They use oak when smoking their brisket and it is good. I think it is a little pricey but I'd go again.

It had such great reviews that we drove far to try it out. The staff were very nice and friendly but tumbs down to the BBQ. The brisket was dry and the chicken and pork ribs were undercooked. I did like the sides though. Overall, I wouldn't recommend.

We were in San Antonio and wanted to try the BBQ based on an article in Texas Monthly. We had brisket, ribs, and sausage, which was just above average. The brisket is true BBQ, not roast with sauce on it, but a long way away from Blacks, Salt Lick, and the other heavy hitters. With that said, they have some... More

...but I'm not sure how they got a 95 from the state for cleanliness. The bbq is okay. I personally do NOT prefer my brisket smothered in gravy but instead enjoy it slow smoked. The ribs were smothered in a sweet sauce that I did not think was Carolina bbq. Give me Texas or KC bq any day over this...

Second visit here cuz we really wanted to try the pork butt. So our meal consisted of that, pork ribs. Brisket, potato salad, and mac n cheese. We were surprised the place was empty at noon on a Sunday, but it got a little busier as we ate. The pork butt was delicious - very juicy and tender. The pork... More

We had Friday night dinner here. Brisket was tender and delicious. A little too much fat for my husband, but my daughter and I thought it was PERFECT. Good seasoning and good bark. No sauce needed. Homemade creamed corn is the best I have ever had. Coleslaw is delicious and not overdressed. We finished the meal with the homemade fried... More

The poppers are wonderful! The grilled chicken and pulled pork are very tasty and moist. Both the beef and baby-back ribs were a little disappointing as they didn't fall off the bone.

I've read all these great things about TWO Bros. bbq, and how it's one of the best in the state of Texas, but I don't see what the fuss is about. My friend and I tried the place on a Saturday morning and found the brisket tough and the rest of the meat just adequate. So...we thought maybe we just... More
