Good homestyle cooking in a small town atmosphere

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

The meatballs are large but have way too much bread crumbs. As s result they are mushy. The Italian sausage should have more spice. But other dishes such as The Kitchen Sink and pasta with Vodka sauce are exceptional. Portions are obscenely large. They are more than 3 can eat.

I've always loved the food here, both at the old location and the new one. Top notch Italian family style that folks in the area rave about. Always best to come with at least 4 or more hungry people. For 5 people, if you order more than 2 or 3 entrees, you will all be going home with plenty of... More
