We live in Ballston Lake, NY and really enjoy the food at Augies. One entree and a salad will almost always feed four people. That's about $30 for 4 people so I can't see how that's expensive. I would consider the food to be very American-Italian. Lots of sauce, garlic and onions. The meatballs are a little mushy for my taste (too many breadcrumbs) but their flavor is great.
As the restaurant becomes more popular the service gets worse and worse. They just cannot accommodate the demand base. If you are at the door and you're told that it will be a 20 minute wait then you should plan on 35-45 minutes.
We set-up a dinner for 16 there one time and when my wife called to preorder the entrees the night before they told her we must order 1 entree for every two people. This was never mentioned before. They also sat us at seperate tables and didn't have anything ready like they said they were going to. It was a real disappointment.
We've come to realize that this restaurant is good for the two of us to grab a bite to eat on a weeknight. It's not someplace we take people out too unless they're close family because you never know what you'll get. There was a time that I hated the fact that the food was so good because I was disappointed by other problems but now Augies and I have found a way to coexist in tomato sauce covered harmony.
