Today, the place is owned by veteran music promoter and restaurateur Eddie Wilson. The menu is classic roadhouse: burgers, steaks, ribs, fried catfish, and chocolate icebox pie for dessert. Understandably, they sell a lot of beer at Threadgill’s, but the wine list holds a few appropriate quaffs, too, including this juicy Rosemount 2001 Shiraz-Cabernet, with nice plum fruit and firm structure.
