“Food poisoning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I got food poisoning the last, and I do mean last time I ate there. A hot dog with chili sauce. The chili sauce was luke warm, a breeding ground for bacteria.

“Never Again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Went there last night. Ordered dogs, fries, rings. The guy behind the counter, while putting my food on the grill actually scratched his head with his bare hand, then proceeded to continue to put my food on the grill. I rather emphatically told him to go wash his hands, and he stormed off to the back and, I assume, did that, because he came out wiping his hands on his shirt! And THAT prompted another outburst from me. So he went and washed his hands again, then took what I assume to be a clean towel and dried his hands. All I can say is the owners better teach their employees PROPER hygiene in the food service industry. I'm NOT going back!

“Classic Drive-In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Breakfast sandwiches are cooked to order on ultra fresh hard rolls. Everything is fresh and homemade. The Hutt family treats you like their family. Famous chili dogs(ask them to drop one in the Fryolator-yum), great fresh fish and Bogner's burgers char broiled. Why anyone goes to the Wendy's across the street is beyond me.

“YOU MUST STOP AND EAT HERE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

Augie's has been here over 60 years...looks almost exactly the same. Locals know this is the BEST drive-in food and old-time place you can go to....a MUST stop for breakfast, lunch, or an early fast food dinner with an old-fashioned touch. Chili dogs are GREAT (smaller than 40 years ago, but same great food. Chili fries. Whole belly clams. Great breakfasts. Don't miss it when going through East Hartford!

“Great Dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This place is around for as many years because it turns out the best dogs around. Fresh toppings, freindly service, fair prices
