Good home cookin' at a reasonable price. One of the largest side selection menus I've seen with all the "comfort veggies" like you find at Grandma's house. Menu is loaded with entree options and the beer selection hosts all the popular brews along with some nice locals to compliment the line-up. Meatloaf was a little dry but still had good... More

Michael, Eddie opened Threadgills in 1981. The menu was inspired by his mother Beulah's southern roots. I will let the kitchen know about the meatloaf. Thank you so much for your review. More

The food was lukewarm, the service was slow, and the flavor was just average. No wow factor. The place has a cozy atmosphere.

We had an extra large group . The restaurant was very accommodating and we were surprised that only one waitress took care of 20 persons. She was patient . Our order did take longer than normal but we had plenty of conversation going on so it was tolerable . I had catfish , salad and asparagus. My husband had chicken... More

Thank you so much for your response. Our servers can handle twenty people because I that is equal to the number of people in their section. We can cut the wait time down with advanced notice and a special menu of your choice. So happy to hear that you had a good time. More

My husband & I were in the mood for a delicious chicken fried steak so we asked & found ourselves at Threadgills on N Lamar in Austin TX. They have 2 locations to choose from. The ambiance is pretty cool. They serve a lot of old school beers as well. It took my husband back & reminded him of family... More

I've been coming to this Threadgills since the early 90's, and I've never once had a bad meal. The service is always great, the food is always top notch, and the history is unparalleled in Austin. Their yeast rolls are so good you could eat a basketful and not even care about the carbs or calorie intake! And this is... More

Well, this was a first-time experience, so it was learning! Our group of 8 got to the downtown Threadgills at 10:30, specifically to listen to the gospel group Silvertones. We didn't know to specifically ask for "by the band" and were seated in a restaurant area. The ROOM where you could hear the band was very small and full. If... More

One of my long time favorites. Eddy Wilson's pride and joy. I used to eat there at least once a week for years. The Chicken fried Steak was the best around. The ambience was special.

It is an Austin institution. It is known for its ambiance and of course, the food. The food is good, especially their sides. We went there from office for a team lunch. I had their oyster po-boy with sweet potato fries. Couple of folks had just the sides, and the Southern staple chicken fried chicken/steak. It was all good. Well... More

Family of four went here for Christmas dinner (around 4pm). The wait time was approximately 45 minutes after being told it would be 1.15 hours. The place was very busy. They do NOT accept call ahead waiting, so you have to go there to get on the wait list. Our waiter was extremely overworked and appeared to be high. We... More
