A good home cooking type place

We eat here several times a year and have never been disappointed. Great place for meatloaf, chicken fried steaks and burgers. Any the wait staff is usually very attentive.

Came here to visit and celebrate my birthday. The food was awesome. The music was provided by Big Cat, a new band composed of 6 of Austin's finest local musicians. A definite "must see" when visiting Austin.

Have been here several times and have always liked it in the past. Dependably good southern food, but have to say I didn't think it was as good this last time. Could have just been an off day, but wouldn't go out of my way to return anytime soon.

We just moved to Austin today and were staying at the Embassy Suites. Tried this restaurant because it was close. Great location and ambience as well as history. Food is ok, but nothing remarkable. But- we had a very rude and slow waitress who rolled her eyes at us least 4 times when we asked for certain items. Slow service.... More

Nice place, standard brunch buffet with tasty choices. Waiter ? Truitt? Was amazing. He was attentive but also let us sit and chat after we had finished. Well worth a try.

We met a relative here for dinner since it was convenient to both of us and she recommended it. We were seated quickly and our server gave us good service throughout including some good advice for our meals. All the meals were good if not spectacular. I don't think you could go wrong with anything on the rather large selection... More

Still a great place to go! Took some out of town (well, country, actually) on a day trip to one of our favorite places, so we stopped by. Years back, they used to give refills on the sides (really!!) The S Lamar location is convenient to downtown, although a bit tricky to get into due to the design of the... More

We found this place just around the corner from our hotel. We ate there twice, it was so good and wanted to try other options on the menu. A great list of entrees with an extensive list of country vegetables. You can also get just vegetables!! The deserts were to die for. They have entertainment inside and outside on occasion.... More

My wife and I stopped by Threadgill's for lunch on a recent weekend trip to Austin. The restaurant's downtown location was great for us since we were attending an event at the Palmer Events Center. They have on-site parking, which is a plus when so many downtown restaurants only have street parking. The restaurant has a large menu that offers... More
