We found this great Mexican Cantina by chance while driving to a grocery store while on vacation. There were plenty of cars in the parking lot and the outside of the building looked like it was a fun place to try. We thought from lookingat the parking lot that there might be a long wait but the restaurant is quite... More

The best thing was the El Jeffe Margarita for sure. The decor and environment was pleasant and fun. The food was disappointing. My brisket was tough and cold. The burger was terrible, the beef rib was just ok. The chopped steak won my FIL's approval and The mac n cheese was pretty good. The service was nice and polite, but... More

The setting for this restaurant is exceptional. Part of it is located in a very old stone building with thick rough walls, one side of which has been removed in favor of a row of garage doors to open during good weather (most of the time here in San Antonio). Then, there is a modern addition for the bar and... More

I really enjoy every visit here and I look forward to my next one. I had the chicken w/ butter sauce and chorizo tonight. It was amazing! My friend had the loaded beef ribs and those were to die for. They have a great outdoor patio w/ music on weekends. They do a stellar job on the uniqueness of their... More

Two Step has, in my book, become one of those restaurants that you use to love because the food and drinks were amazing and even though it was on the pricy side it was well worth it, to a not so good, way too pricey for what you get. I would visit Two Step at least a few times a... More

On the outskirts of San Antonio looking for a non-coffee shop for dinner - what a find. The BBQ rib was recommended - it is the end of a prime rib with lots of meat, smoky and tender. Maura had the chicken cojito cheese chorizo and a butter lemon sauce. The sides of sauted Brussels Sprouts and Mac and cheese... More

We have relatives who recommended two step for a family get-together. Our large group was seated right at the time for our reservation. The service was quick and friendly. We had the onion straws and the were light and crispy, just perfect. The special prime rib was perfectly medium rare, but the horseradish potatoes tasted bland. The chicken fried steak... More

What pleasant surprise. Located right off of a busy highway, but seemed secluded once you get inside/on the patio. We have always been at night so that might play into that. The patio is lovely, staff went over the top to take care of us for a birthday celebration on our last visit. Even lighting an outdoor gas heater for... More
