We visited the new Little Woodrow’s on San Antonio’s Northwest Side

In mid-January, Little Woodrow’s officially opened its new location on San Antonio’s Northwest Side, taking over Two Step Restaurant and Cantina on Loop 1604 and Braun. You can’t miss it. The bar is near the strip ball that houses Fast Eddie’s and is adjacent to Starbucks. 

This has been one of the hottest openings in months, so getting in to actually preview it has been an adventure. I tried going during the devastating Dallas Cowboys playoff game, but the place was packed, and I wasn’t ready for all that commotion. However, I finally went this past week just after the bar’s happy hour, which has different specials every day and runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The bartenders told me it’s best to just ask what the special of the day is because it changes often. Little Woodrow’s typically offers $3 wells and domestics drafts and $5 wines, but other specials can be added by the bar, depending on the day and event. 

Like the other two Little Woodrow’s in town (on Babcock and in Stone Oak), the space is huge and dog-friendly. However, it doesn’t have as many arcade games as the Babcock location. When I was there, I saw cornhole but that’s about it. 

The new location felt rustic and modern with trendy swings and cute wooden benches. It also features a upstairs bar the offers a sweet view of the huge outdoor TV. For those who get cold easily, Little Woodrow’s has fire pits and heaters outside to warm up. 

For food, patrons can snack on typical bar grub, like fried pickles and boneless wings. Or, try the Hot Cheeto cheese curds, which is Wisconsin white cheddar curds breaded with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and served with ranch. 

The menu also includes classic cheeseburgers, Nashville hot chicken, a turkey and ham club, and chicken quesadillas. On a separate menu, you can also order Woody’s Pizza, pretzels, and cheesy garlic bread. 

It’s a perfect spot to grab a margarita or beer, eat some good food and watch football games, UFC fights, and anything else sports. It’s not as interactive and doesn’t have as many games as other sports bars, However, it’s that neighborhood joint where you can get the classics. 

Plus, $3 wells aren’t too bad.

Little Woodrow’s on Braun is open from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 2 a.m. on the weekends.
