I really like Threadgill's, but on my last visit I had their red beans and rice and it really fell flat -- as in hardly any kind of taste except bland. Maybe just a little spice would help.

Had high expectations but we were sorely disappointed. Chicken fried steak was bland and the Friday special, King Ranch Chicken was just a pile of mushy tortillas with just a few bites of chicken. The margaritas were good though!

Threadgill's has been around longer than I can remember, and is a fabulous venue to catch some of the Austin blues and sound that it is so famous for. Get there early so you can get close to the stage. We did not eat here,...More

After checking with Tripadvisor, I went to Threadgill.s on Riverside. I enjoyed a five selection vegetable plate; mashed potatoes, San Antonio squash, fried okra, tomato and cucumber salad and a salad. Rolls and cornbread were served. I enjoyed this experience. $11.95.

Be sure to stop at Threadgill's for a delicious, home-cooked type meal! The prices are reasonable and teenage grandsons loved their choices! They have something for everyone!

Just love this place. Chicken fried steak will blow you away. The sides, greens and/or potatoes are cooked well and taste great. Good service. Good people and great tasting food. Just a fantastic place.

If you want some great Austin feels, you have to go to Threadgill's gospel Sunday brunch!! Amazing food and uplifting live music does the soul good!

Two of our Austin friends pointed out and recommended Threadgill's as they were driving us back to our hotel. It is literally across the street, and was even a nice walk in the light rain early Sunday night. Enjoyed the music history, and we happily...More

I had several friends tell me how great this place is and I can't understand why! I ordered the chicken fried steak, mash potatoes, and fried okra. The CFS had a thick, heavy, breaded coating that was not very good. The steak part separated from...More

I can't remember if I saw a dog there or not. Austin is a dog-friendly town. I would call them and ask.
