We usually drive to Threadgills straight from the airport. The chicken fried steak, okra and cornbread bring a real Texas welcome.

This was my second time to Threadgills. First time was for brunch quite a while ago and was at the downtown location. This time with a friend for lunch, we went to the Burnett Road location which was the original location. We had their special of the day which was a very tasty King Ranch enchilada accompanied by two delicious... More

Had the chicken fried steak, which was cooked perfectly. Plenty of crunch but not overdone to cause the beef to be chewy. Salsa had a great distinct flavor too. Felt like I found a place the locals try to hide from everyone else.

Plenty of room. Excellent food and the price was verrry reasonable. Don't go unless you are ready to eat.

Threadgill's is basically a southern diner with a bar license. There are a whole lot of times when that is just what you need. My ratings take the genre into account so don't confuse this with Morton's Steaks, but for an overgrown diner it is pretty good. We had three diverse dinner selections and all were excellent; I am not... More

We used to look forward to visits to Threadgills for the home cooked favorites, but this last visit was disappointing. The food was bland, which was shocking to us as we remembered it with so much more flavor in the past. We would probably return, but I won't be taking friends or family visiting from out of town.

Have been coming here for years, but tonight was the worst food and service I have ever had. Our waitress ( bless her heart) was overwhelmed and I think she needed help. I'm not going to be coming anymore. Maybe it was a bad night but I was not impressed with the way it worked out. Sorry Eddie
