My daughter is in Virginia and hear about the fire at Augie's this summer. She was crushed since it is still her favorite place and we make sure to take her when she is home for the holidays. Luckily the owners and staff got busy making a home in their new location. We took our daughter there when she was home and she said that it is not the same - it is even better! There is now better parking and more room. The service is still wonderful and the food is still excellent! Still the best place in the area to get the best food at the best price.

We have always regarded Augie's as a really good home style Italian restaurant and ate there quite a few times before it burned to the ground this summer. We had not been to the new location until now, and were wondering if the quality/value of food and warm atmosphere were still excellent. I can honestly say it may even be better! The food was just as good as before. The service was friendly and attentive. The new surroundings probably even a step above, and parking vastly improved. Initially we understood Augie would rebuild at the old location, but I would recommend he stay right where he is.
Our favorite dish is one of his "healthy choices" - whole wheat fettucinne with chicken and shrimp in a great tomato sauce. Most pasta dishes are lots of pasta and not much of the meat/fish. That is not the case here. There seems to be a never ending supply of moist chicken and countless large shrimp done perfectly. We ate as much as we could and still brought home enough for 2-3 more servings.
The only problem is we never have room for desert!

Augie's is our absolute favorite Italian Restaurant. Augie and his staff are the best. This past summer the restaurant burned to the ground. (: Augie made sure that his staff was provided for by organizing fund raisers for them. They truly are a family. The food is the best and the prices are very reasonable. If you are in the area stop by their temporary restaurant. You won't be disappointed or go home hungry.

It is hard to find a place in this area that consistently puts out great food. Specials are always amazing along with the everyday favorites.nice quality fish and meats. We really enjoy the service, you can tell the people who work there enjoy what they do.

Augies is one of the best places, if not the best place, to have an authentic Italian meal. We started with fried calamari and eggplant rolitini, moved on to two awesome entrees, along with garlic bread and tossed green salad. We shared a bottle of under $20.00 wine, that was very good as well. We usually just get takeout due to it being very loud in there and too hard for my husband to hear. But, we were out with friends and decided to eat in. Our server was quite new but she did a wonderful job, any questions we had she went and got the answers for if she didn't know the answer. GREAT, GREAT, Meal.
