I've been enjoying Augie's for years and it never disappoints. When my family explored a caterer for my parents anniversary the chef gave us large samples of everything and we were extremely pleased after we hired them. I've been to several events Augie's catered and have purchased gift cards as Christmas gifts. I love this restaurant!!

What can I say about Augie’s that many haven’t said already. While the facility is rather plain and a bit small, you’re not there for the atmosphere. You’re there for the excellently prepared food which is both good tasting but visually delightful. All I can say is you better come hungry. Be very careful how you order and if you... More

Anniversary Dinner with my wife at Augie's. The Italian bread was fresh and warm, Salad also very fresh with plenty for the two of us. All meals here serve at least two people, we order the signature Cowboy Steak, it is aged for 35 days and ours was cooked to perfection. It comes to the table sliced with seasoned potato... More

This is our "go to" for take out for all family events. We love the chicken/veal Sorrentino! The sauce is always fresh. This is the food that my Italian grandmother always made!

Surprisingly good food in a very busy setting. Dishes come out hot and generous servings. Excellent value and very generous portions. Great penne aka vodka, calamari and caeser salad. Easily one dish will feed four. About the best family style servings in our area.

My wife and I dined here with another couple last night. It was our first visit here and it will definitely not be our last. I would definitely recommend making a reservation on any night. As we entered the restaurant, we knew immediately that the food must be great. There were several dozen take-out orders waiting to be picked up.... More

When they say a meal will serve two - believe it!! We had leftovers to spare. We had tortellini with spinach and pancetta - perfect! All served on a tray for a nice presentation. The bread is great and they give you a new quarter round loaf to take home, not just your couple slices left from the table. Don't... More
