Stopped in for a late lunch with my granddaughters on a recent visit to Austin. I always try to eat at Threadgill's when I am in Austin. They have a great selection of entrees, but I usually get the five item vegetable plate, since it...More

Excellent daily specials, some a tad spicy for my Midwestern palate. Quality service as well as quick. Another iconic location in Austin, we visit annually with daughter and son in law. Fried green tomatoes!!!

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!

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