    The music! Food is below average, but who cares!

  • Miriam G.

    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.

    Miriam Goldman · August 7, 2014
  • Carlos G.

    Just because social media & their menu boast about the chicken fried steak, doesn't mean it's good. It was bland, too salty and the gravy was just awful. Good bar service though.

    Carlos Gutierrez · June 24, 2014
  • David K.

    The food is terrible, the seasoning is off, the potatoes are bland and the chicken steak gravy is sweet instead of savory. The waiter service give a cult vibe. I don't recommend this place.

    Top 10 live music venues intimate atmosphere. Bob Scneider rocks here.

    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.

    Drink & dance, listen to music.

    Very disappointing, I would not suggest anything. 11 ppl and the only thing that was "good" was the burger.

    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

    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.

    Don't know about others but I have eaten here three or four times it's always been great food and service once with a live band.

    Gregory Cripps · May 24, 2013

    Worst service and rudest staff ever. Worse than NYC and that is saying saying something.

    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 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

    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!

    Save room for Chocolate Icebox Pie. There can be more crust but the filling was nummy!

    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.
