This was recommended by our hotel as it was close by. It was just ok. I ordered the catfish and it was a little underdone. The portions were huge though.

Came for lunch with customers and got a nice experience with great food and fast service. Nice cornbread to start with and the chicken fried steak was super.

I visited Threadgill's for a music concert at their outdoor venue just adjacent to their historic restaurant. I was very impressed, however with having ADA issues, it was difficult to navigate. (But not impossible.) I would go back again and again.

We had a good time, but the meal wasn't too impressive, a view shared by others in the party. It was a large group, and the service was spotty. Very loud, making it difficult to hear. On the other hand, they accommodated a large group...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.
