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

Had their chicken breast special, outstanding taste with a special sauce. Also they have a special way they prepare corn on the cob and it was very good. Food was hot. Staff and service were great. Restaurant was clean and the decor is an old rock farm house.

Two Step is a good restaurant for a variety of food from burgers to the Caballero Plate of Texas BBQ. Lovely patio where we dined as well as a nicely appointed inside. Try the grits if you go - little more creamy than I remember but very good, nevertheless. We would recommend Two Step as a reasonably priced with a... More

My husband and I have been coming to the restaurant for years! We've never had a bad experience...it's usually pretty busy, but if you don't want to wait for a table, you can sit in the bar or patio without waiting. The restaurant is an old stable or barn and has a neat decor and warm vibe. The other night... More

The food was just average - meats are served a-la-carte and all side are extra. The baby back ribs were actually below average. They were tender and falling off the bone, but lacked much flavor. The mac & cheese was also just average. The margaritas were very good. We'd go back for drinks, but not for dinner.

Party of 3 greeted and seated promptly by pleasant hostess. She wanted to seat us by the serving area, but put us elsewhere when I asked. The music is very loud and the chairs not very comfortable. But...the food is tasty, the portions are generous, and the margaritas are not to be missed. The 3 stuffed jalapenos are the biggest... More
