Following a recommendation from one of my colleagues, we ate at Two Step Restaurant and Cantina for my wife's birthday on December 18th. From the well smoked meats to the roasted corn mashed potatoes and jalapeno grits, the food was exceptional as well as very different from the normal fare of San Antonio. During the holidays, we returned with four... More

I got the 2 meat plate (brisket and pulled pork) and neither had any flavor. The pulled pork was half fat and the brisket was watery. Didn't care for the potato salad either (crunchy potatoes). Over priced for what you get. Won't be wasting my money here again.

Loved the atmosphere! When we first walked in they didn't seem to happy to see us but service was good maybe more robotic. Food was good. We really enjoyed more the art work and old building.

This evening was our last dance with the increasingly frustrating and disappointing Two Step. We've been a fan of this restaurant since before even moving to San Antonio, however apathetic staff, the non availability of a significant number of items, decreasing food quality, and a stale, stagnant menu have finally convinced us to patronize them no longer. This evening was... More

Being a former Texan now living in Florida, I always try to get real Texas food when I come back for a visit. This time I had a hankerin for a good Chicken Fried Steak and the Two Step Cantina did not disappoint. The had-breaded 11oz ribeye was fork tender and tasty. The roasted corn mashed potatoes were excellent. This... More

Near two Hyatt Resorts and Sea World. Texas style décor and food. Nice creative menu with very tasty and abundant food and drink. Well worth going. Get discount card from Hyatt for free appetizer.

With our dinner plans changing by the moment we came upon two step. A quick check online with trip adviser revealed that they were pretty highly rated and a quick check of the menu showed that they had fried pickles. I myself could live on Fried pickles. So we went in decided to give it a try. We found the... More

My family and I had dinner here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. I ordered the sausage and brisket, which was fabulous. They are one of the only restaurants I have been to which serves Big Red which I also love. This place looks like it maybe was an old stable or garage of some sort turned romantic... More

Arrived at 5pm on Sunday with 8 adults and 1 baby - restaurant was fairly empty but filled up. We were seated at a nice big round table -- really liked that because it was easier to talk to everyone. The building is also very cool. Despite being in a newly built area, the restaurant was built in an old... More
