1. Two Step Restaurant and Cantina
9840 W Loop 1604 N, (210) 688-2686, twosteprestaurant.com
Two Step Restaurant and Cantina, housed in the renovated historic Ruempel homestead, takes pride in its rustic roots. Vintage Texana decor adorns the walls, and the menu offers traditional comfort food favorites like chicken fried steak, prime rib, catfish, and barbecue. The noteworthy bread pudding and pecan pie with ice cream satiate the sweet tooth, while an El Jefe margarita whets the whistle. With reasonable prices at both lunch and dinner, patio seating, and live music in the evenings, this family friendly restaurant can persuade even the most discriminating Downtowner to make the trek.
