In the south, you can't appreciate great cooking until you can appreciate the basics. And one of the basic southern foods that everyone should welcome into their life is a delicious and memorable chicken fried steak. And in Austin, no one does it better than Threadgill's.
With home style cooking like chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy with all the sides (You can have seconds of any of your sides. Wow!) you could possibly think of how could you go wrong? You can't.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!! There is live music at Threadgill's.
I came here late on a Friday night to see a friends band and was pretty psyched to finally see what Threadgills was all about. I had heard so many good things.
The ambience of this place is unbeatable. They have an outdoor stage and bar and an inside cafeteria style seating area that feel super Texan. There are things I don't love about this place (like styrofoam dishes and a slightly overly-casual staff), but overall it's an Austin staple that should be treasured.
It's all about the experience, right?
Check their calendar via their website and you can fill your belly with some great food and your ears with some great music with your meal...and a GREAT place for you and your friends to relax after a long week at work.
