Fast service, great quality and value for your dollar. This place has been around FOREVER and is a favorite for Pratt & Whitney folks as it's a simple walk. Chili dogs are great and one of my personal favorites.

Just had the fried "Special" Shrimp dinner with fries & a very tiny cup of Cole Slaw that was about a tablespoon - total cost = $10.00. Just being descriptive for readers, not criticizing. I think a little high compared to other places at $7.99. Not a lot of food in my opinion, but fresh & tasted good. Everything is... More

Apparently there are too many people that don't know what a good chili dog taste like. I remember visiting augies in the late 60s and early 70s. So i understand the nostalgia. Get a milkshake and call it a day. If you want the best chili dog go to the ranch house in hartford/windsor line. Theres no better chili in... More

I think they have the best chili dogs. The chili is a bit spicy but good. The rings are great, thin and crispy. Their good at what they do here.

Augie & Ray's offers more than most burger fast food joints. In addition to tasty burgers, dogs, fries and my personal favorite, fried clam strips (they have full belly too), you can expect friendly service and even get a history lesson while waiting for your order. They also serve breakfast. You'll find outdoor and indoor seating. Inside l and is... More

Providing the best in fresh, tasty and hot food for 65 years. Good food, reasonable prices and quick service are hallmarks of this fine establishment. Try it one time and you will be back for sure.

I grew up going to Augie's with my Dad. We were from Glastonbury and would head over for either a pepper egg breakfast sandwich, chili dog, or a cheeseburger. My personal favorite was the chili dog - with everything on it! I would add sauerkraut, mustard, ketchup, relish, onions, etc. Anything I could find at the condiment bar. It wasn't... More

This is probably the best place in town for a simple burger and some onion rings. There is nothing fancy here - just a classic drive-in. It is sandwiched between a main road and Pratt & Whitney - you don't go here for the view. The outside seating is ample and nice in most seasons. The service has always been... More
