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!
Just a shout away from the former Armadillo World Headquarters, Threadgills offers Southern food and regular live music.
check out the old concert posters.
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.
Fantastic Sunday brunch here! Arrive early for a seat close to the live gospel band.
Always turn down the music in my car when riding by to hear what awesome band is playing. Bob Schneider's Texas Bluegrass Massacre is scheduled here during SXSW! More info on do512.com
Probably the best chicken fried steak in Austin.
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!
Darn good country food! The 3 veggie plate is great & so are the fried green tomatoes & the chicken fried steak!
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.
Get the Chicken Fried Steak with Mash Potatoes & Gravy
Get here early - this place gets busy FAST.
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!
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.
Find "Get Your Art On" info inserts here!
Just had the 3 Veggie plate. Spinach Casserole, Scalloped Potatoes and Fried Okra to die for.
Worst service and rudest staff ever. Worse than NYC and that is saying saying something.
The great Nakia preformed here.
Rolls, not roles...damn auto correct.
The dinner roles are amazing!
Dont have the fried cat fish but do try the chicken fried steak...mmm
McLovin was sitting at the table next to me.....of and get Chicken Fried Sirloin!
Fried Green Tomatoes are AWESOME!
MAC n cheese. Mmmmm
Try the buttermilk pie...so so good
Sunday brunch at Gill's kicks ass!
Great soul food
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.
$3 specialty drinks during happy hour the Diddley-dang-ade is yummy!
Sunday brunch with gospel music!!! Awesomeness!!!!
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.
Was there for the Mother's Day brunch. Sweet potatoe pancakes and french toast were great.
Sunday brunch was great and music so much fib
The Salmon is fantastic. Lee was our server and he is really cool and helpful. Highly recommended.
The Gourds @ Threadgill's = Happiness!
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.
Delicious cheese grits! If ordered as a size, the bowl is HUGE!!
Great food and great service! ;+) try the Dr. Dang! So yummy!
free public parking after business hours in Austin city deck right behind their parking lot (at least during sxsw)
Try the Chicken Fried Sirloin - #whyaustin (via @Foodspotting)
