“Good comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

Four of us had lunch here on a Monday. Visiting from out of town, it was the first time for all of us. I had heard for years about the great food so we decided to give it a try. We chose the location on Riverside Drive. Parking was plentiful, there was no wait for a table, our waitress was exceptional. We ordered comfort food: chicken fried steak and sides of garlic cheese grits and fried okra. We asked for additional gravy for the chicken fried steak and the extra gravy was much better tasting than what was on our steak. The food was very good and we ended up taking half of it home. Did I mention the fantastic bread basket with rolls and cornbread? So yummy! We also had pecan pie and pumpkin pie. We may have been too full to adequately appreciate the desserts, as I was not that impressed with the pecan. The pumpkin was very good however. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

“"Delicious"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

It was our first time to Threadgills on Riverside. I had the grilled chicken and my husband had chopped steak and both were delicious! There is a lot of fresh vegetables to choose from for your sides and they make home made dressing for your salad. It is really delicious! The service is superb! We intend to check out the Sunday brunch the next time we are here!

“Good Home Cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Very good chicken fried steak with a wonderful assortment of side choices. The service was very good. The fun atmosphere celebrates Austin and the Texas music scene.

“Home cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I love the home cooking... and margarita's for desert! I always like to get a window spot and take note of the musical guests and when they will be there!

I like both locations, lamar and riverside, but typical end up at the riverside location while riding our bicycles along the river!
