The outdoor music venue is beautiful! I ventured inside to get a drink since the bar outside had a limited selection. The bartender was incredibly rude. I've never met a more prickly owl in the service industry. The drinks were bad and spendy and I will not return.

A diner at it's best. Service was good and the food was very good. Had the chicken and dumplings plus the seconds. Bread, drinks and beer were good. Easy to find and plenty of parking.

The food was very good and the bloody mary were great. Had 11 people and the bill was under 190 including tip. That was with 5 drinks from the bar!

A kid friendly place as well. They had cans full of crayons for them !

Threadgill's is an Austin experience for sure. My husband ordered the pecan crusted chicken, and I ordered trout prepared in the same style with a cajun relish on top. Both entrees were tasty, Southern sides - we enjoy the macaroni and cheese and a cucumber and tomato salad. Spinach casserole - OK, maybe a little bitter. Service provided by Jade was super. She was friendly and attentive and enthusiastic to share her ideas about the menu. In addition, our tea glasses were never empty, and she gave us cups to go too! We started with the fried green tomatoes served with a side of zesty ranch - we wish they were a little hotter. They seemed too uniform in size to be homemade. Ahhhhh the mysteries of Threadgill's...We took boxes of food home as portions were generous. No room for dessert. Next time! When visiting Austin, go to Threadgill's to hear a little music and eat a filling dinner. It may not be the best home cooking ever, but it is a fun dining experience.
