Great meal after a day at the track

Spent a Saturday at the track and went on a friends recommendation, best pick of the day. Living in NY can't believe this is the best Italian I have had. family style portions are huge expect a doggy bag.

A unique family style Italian restaurant with delicious food. Our reservations were honored fifteen minutes late, but after being seated we were served promptly with drinks and bread. The salads came shortly thereafter but there was a substantial wait for the main dishes to arrive. Once they arrived, they were hot and delicious. We ordered the vodka marinara and chicken... More

My family has been to Augie's on several occasions . It offers good home style cooking and we always left overs to take home. We have ordered our meal to take out and it never disappoints. It is a small venue so get there early it fills up fast. Excellent meals for the money with large portions.

Best family style restaurant around. Everything we've always ordered has been cooked to order so it's piping hot when it's served. All fresh ingredients & the portions are very generous. Always end up with a doggy bag which is the best to have the next day. We always order the "kitchen sink pasta" which is the best on the menu... More

Food and service are always top notch. I've never had a bad meal or service. The Monday takeout is a great deal and the other specials rock as well. These are just a few of the reasons I return time after time.

We needed to have a gathering catered after a funeral. Food needed to be ordered the Saturday before for Wednesday evening. They arrived on time and everything was as promised. The food was all excellent and still hot on arrival. We rented the apparatus to keep the food warm. There is an additional cost but worth it for a large... More

We had not been to Augie's since their old place burned down - the new place is nice right in town - I got our food to go - chicken parm with penne - $27.00+ enough food for more than 2 people - bread came with it - Italian food - nothing special - enough food for another meal.

Get there early, because there's always a line later on! We had the house salad, fine, nothing special. Ask for the dressing on the side. The 'kitchen sink' was good; let it sit for a minute to let the sauce sink into the pasta a little. The chicken parm was good. A wot of warning if you haven't been there... More

The place is always extremely noisy and chaotic. They are usually unorganized and the atmosphere is loud, frenetic and hectic. They do not take reservations therefore it is quite typical that you will have to wait for well over an hour for a table for two, which we have experienced. One night we decided to call and order for takeout/pick... More
