Awesome memorabilia but the food was just ok. We had dinner on a Saturday night and it was super quiet in there. My drink was totally not what it was supposed to be but they exchanged it for a beer no problem. Chicken fried steak was fine but not anything impressive. The sides were good and one dinner with the... More

If you want Texas home cookin' this is the place. Best chicken fried stead and white gravy ever and a choice of 2 of their 29 sides with free refills. Full bar, outside seating available, music sometimes and a very interesting history. An Austin must.

Went for dinner with the family. Was told to get the chicken fried steak. I was not disappointed. Service was excellent and the food was good and reasonably priced. Gluten free options for the misses were a part of the menu.

I don't know....I guess because of their history and reputation I expected more. My wife and I lunched there on 4/28/17. I ordered the thing they are noted for...chicken fried steak and my wife ordered an Ahi salad. My steak was not what I expected given their reputation. Smaller and with very little of the almost flavorless gravy. It was... More

We visited Threadgills with our family of 3 generations. Everyone order something different. I tried a salad and it was drowning in dressing and was quite disappointing. Others at the Chicken Fried Steak and found it tough and less than as billed. Even the green beans were dripping with grease. The atmosphere was the best part of the evening and... More

I will definitely look into to this with the Kitchen Manager. We serve our dressings on the side and we don't put grease on our green beans. Sorry you were disappointed. More

Having lived in Austin for 30 years. Have been here many times. Today was the first time to have a chicken fried steak in a long time. The side vegetables were good. The grease used for the chicken fried steak was a little old.

It was close to the Bat Bridge so we thought lets give it a try. Nothing was good about it. The waitress was ok but the food was not. Home made? Really? Bland, boring, and a no frills family style place. There are way to many other great places to eat at. Sorry Threadgills. Not one person in our group... More

My best friend and I travelled to Austin, twice in two days, just to eat again at Threadgills! Although it was an hour and a half from our hotel, it was well worth the trip, both times. The atmosphere was welcoming and homey, with great old country Western music playing in the background. The decor is fantastic! Memorabilia everywhere! Our... More

The atmosphere was kind of eclectic. The food was fine. The mashed potatoes and the peach cobbler were the best. There was no live music. I think that is what it is best known for.
