Fun Place, Sub-par food

I've been here a few times for SXSW related parties and shows and always had fun. I love the outdoor space! Last week I ate here for the first time and was underwhelmed. With what seemed to be plenty of staff and not too many customers, our server changed three times and our food took 45... read more

This place is what got Austin on its way to being "live music capital of the world"! If your a music junkie like me you have to check this place out were Janis and others were discovered. We ordered the prickly pear frozen margarita which was good. The staff was friendly and the manager took time to talk about the... More

My son and I were headed to the Blue Man Group show, and we wanted to stop and eat prior to it. I have never been to Austin, so the fact that Threadgills was next to the theater was very good. They did have the brunch buffet out, but we opted to eat from the menu. The portions were large,... More

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
