Apparently there has been a change in ownership, and it's definitely not for the best. It's lost the "family" atmosphere. Service was slow; did not appear to have enough staff, food was not served hot. A complete opposite from the previous visits. Very sad.

Second time we have eaten here. Wanted to try the beef ribs and they were delicious! Ribs were meaty and very tender. Service was a bit slow according to our server he had to tend the bar and wait on tables on not in his section. Ladies bathroom needed attention. We will return because the food is good!

My sister and I decided to grab dinner and she felt like BBQ and this was the first place that came up on TripAdvisor that was close. Sooooo glad we went because the food was great! I had the two step tacos and they were just delicious! Loved the overall decor of the place too and our server was very... More

The food was very good. Served family style by a kind and attentive wait staff. We did not feel rushed even though the dining room was busy.

Its hard to put Two Steps into a certain category (unless the category is awesome). The food is Americana and I've never had a bad plate. Burgers to BBQ they have something for you. Beer lovers will have a hard time not finding something and there is an impressive wine list as well ( I recommend the malbec). They have... More

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
