Cold food. No taste. Burger was a frozen piece of cardboard. We were very disappointed. Banana pudding was instant with NO bananas.

We went in for a late lunch, with a group of friends. I kinda balked at going to Threadgills as I'd been here years ago, and I didn't really care for it then. People in our party pretty much agreed with me after the experience. My daughter, five others and myself ordered their "world famous chicken fried steak". Wow is... More

We visit Austin Texas 2 or 3 times per year and every time find a reason to make sure we eat at Threadgills. We find the variety is what appeals to us as well as the size of the meals. We usually end up sharing a meal. The service is very good, the food is very good and the atmosphere... More

First time here. Really good food. Reasonable prices and really nice staff, we came 25 minutes before closing and they served us, didn't rush us or anyrhing. Food was of good quality and they give you generous servings. Will be back when I am in Austin again.

This was our first visit and I was looking forward to some home cooking. The portions were large and some of the items we tried were good (chicken fried chicken and okra were both tasty). My only real concern was the seasoning they used - not sure if it was msg? But whatever it was made me so thirsty and... More

Threadgills is a casual restaurant with many menu options that will satisfy everyone's tastes. I am gluten-free and I can always find something there that works for me. I go there almost every time I'm in Austin, and they never disappoint. It's always good food, with good service, at a good price. There are two locations. I have only visited... More

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