We had heard about Threadgills so decided to try it. It was a disappointment. The server was very professional and courteous and the highlight of the visit. The fried chicken tenders were very dry. The asparagus was overlooked and pale and had an odd taste. The broccoli and green beans were very good, steamed al dented as requested. The salmon... More

This restaurant has been here as long as I can remember, and I have some fond memories of eating there as a college student...but I recently ate there with my family, and it was just "meh." The dishes all sound so tasty and comforting, but my food was just downright bland. I had fried catfish, hush puppies, black eyed peas,... More

The food we had there was average, but it was a cool atmosphere. Good salmon, chicken fingers, salad, but there was something wrong with the asparagus side, like it came from a can or had been frozen.

My wife ordered vegetables and loved them all. I ordered the fried catfish and it was OK, not a lot of flavor. Another person had chicken fried steak and scrapped off a lot of the excess batter. Most people said their food was good to very good. We ate at lunch time. Expect the place to be crowded and very... More

Overwhelming menu options of delicious meals. Daily specials were fabulous and lunch was served very fast. Made fresh from scratch home style cooking that is highly recommended.

...this is the place to go. Stopped in while driving through town to another spot in the Texas Hill Country. My daughters are young, and learning to appreciate the greatness of chicken-fried steak. So I knew I had to take them here. It turned out to be a great choice... First, the atmosphere. We're a family of music lovers, so... More

On a day where many employees were in town we gathered the few who work in Austin to find a place to get together. The leader selected Threadgill's to not risk something new to frighten those who do not explore the great restaurant scene here. So its safe. However it is not the best place to have a business meeting... More

I like Threadgill's most of the time, and this visit was one of them. Had a hankering for a steak and they satisfied it with a rare Ribeye that melted in my mouth. Wish they had baked potatoes to go with their steaks, but honestly, the steak was so good I didn't really miss not having a baker. The girl... More

After kayaking along the river, my wife wanted dessert at Threadgill's. On the way in, I heard people talking about how good the chicken fried steak was. They were right. It was amazing! (My wife's buttermilk pie was the best I've ever tried too.)

Food was good, location easy to get to, and staff was attentive. Enjoyed the chicken fried steak and so many sides to choose from. I'd come back again no problem.

Thank E K
