    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
