    The granddaddy of all Southern comfort restaurants, Threadgill's has still got it. We flip for the chicken-fried steak and airy yeast rolls, and terrific live roots music has us ever tapping our toes.

    It was here that Janis Joplin honed her mix of country music and rock onstage. She also worked here as a server.Country crooner and music producer Jimmie Dale Gilmore led the house band in the 1980s.

    If you are looking for traditional southern food at a great price visit Threadgills. They have delicious cornbread and rolls that will take you right back to your southern roots and extensive sides!

    While it may be known for its chicken friendly steak, the Vegetable Plates are a delicious option

    The chicken fried steak was delicious, the service was fast, and it was overall a great way to spend our Thanksgiving without having to cook!

    It's legendary for a reason. From the bread to the sides to the king ranch chicken to the best chicken fried sirloin in a region known for it. And fabulous live music. A must

    Opened by a bootlegger the day Prohibition ended in 1933, Threadgill’s served as the breeding ground for many burgeoning Austin acts, including a young Janis Joplin.
