    The sides are amazing and the selection thereof is extensive. You're going to have to go a few times just for those delicious Southern sides. The vintage advertising's also a real treat for the eyes.

    It's almost 80 years since they first opened their doors! Got to love the live music, cold beers & delicious country food. Once you're there don't forget to ask for some Texas Music Water. Read more

    Weekend brunch buffet has delicious biscuits, made to order omelettes, fantastic cheese grits, and I could just go on. Plus gospel music.

    The essence of Austin, from Janis Joplin to Willie you know who. This is Threadgill’s World Hdqts, now inside the original Armadillo World Headquarters Concert Hall and Beer Garden, 1970-1990.

    Top tip is incorrect. Armadillo World Headquarters was next door; but AWH's spirit lives on in the art on the walls and in TWH's beer garden when the music gets under way.

    Do the Sunday morning gospel brunch! Get here about 10:30 for a good seat in the saloon, you won't be sorry! The mimosas and sweet potato pancakes are the ish!

    It's the veggies ... it's all about the veggies ... and the music ... the veggies and the music and the chicken fried steak. That's it ... do it.

    Delve into the free, tasty cornbread the moment you sit down, and make a point to head there on Sunday for “Bluegrass Brunch.” They have migas on the buffet! Read more

    Be sure to ask your waiter or waitress for "second helpings" of whichever vegetables you order with your meal. It's an old Threadgill's tradition and they're FREE!

    Their sides are almost universally excellent. If I were to ever "leave" my wife, she knows she can find me in a giant vat of their Scalloped Potatoes.

    Honestly I had the chicken fried steak, not sure why everyone is saying it is the best in Austin. To me it is just Average. It's very plain with not much taste. But the walls are cool.

    Interesting: this building used to be the home of the Armadillo World Headquarters as one of the early catalysts of the Austin music scene. Janis Joplin got her start at the original at 6414 N. Lamar!

    Second helpings of vegetable sides (we're looking at you too, mac & cheese) are free, so remind your waiter or waitress when you're cravin' fried pickles.

    Someone left a tip that this building used to be the Armadillo World Headquarters. Not true. It is constructed in part of the location where the original AWH stood, but not the actually building.

    Yeah the place looks fun, but we bet you didn’t anticipate an "orgy" walking in here. It’s not on the menu....ask the chef, it’s his specialty.

    They DO have kids menus. If George is server he will tell you they don't so he can pad the check. Danny the manager fixed the situation food 3-4 out of 5 stars
