Oh, yeah their claim to ‘fame- giving Janis Joplin her start’. Now they continue to encourage the very talented from our Austin music community. The “soul series” featured up and coming singer Candace Bellamy this week. Delightful! Poboy sandwich delicious.

This was a great Austin institution. Once again it was a great post-partying meal with solid Texas fare. The first time here I had chips, gravy and a huge slice of chocolate pie which was the best hangover cure I could have asked for. My...More

We went to the Riverside location on a Monday and received very good service and enjoyed two salads. Known for "home cooking," the restaurant offered the usual chicken fried steak, seafood, a lengthy list of vegetables and sides, and even liver and onions. However, we...More

I met an old Austinite for dinner and we both remarked that we hadn't been here in years. The portions of CFS are smaller and the all-you-can-eat veggie platter is a one serving per veggie platter now. Regardless, we had a good meal. The musicians,...More

Thank you for your response. Threadgills portions were so huge in the early days we noticed a lot of waste. Eddie decided to serve a normal portion of our vegetables and offer second helpings. So happy to have you back.

Excellent choices of home cooking. You can even get a vegetable plate of 3 or 5 of their scrumptous vegetable choices. Also served us homemade rolls and jalapeno cornbread. Went out feeling stuffed! King Ranch chicken was delicious.

We enjoyed a hearty meal at Threadgills. Our party of 11 called ahead for reservations and we were seated upon arrival. The atmosphere is trendy and very appealing. From catfish to country fried steak, they have something for everyone.
