For our 40th wedding anniversary we happened to be in Springfield for my husband's meeting. Without a doubt, we made reservations weeks in advance for our favorite restaurant, Augie's Front Burner! Our server, Liz, was wonderful! Very attentive but did not hover - never referred to us as "you guys" (which I detest). We asked that we be allowed a slower pace and that was honored - we were not rushed at all! Our cocktails were perfect, our dinners were perfect, our dessert was perfect!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH AUGIE'S FRONT BURNER!!!

We had a great lunch, excellent service, great atmosphere.

My friend was visiting and I thought it would be nice to have lunching historic downtown Springfield. Augie's got such great reviews, I decided to try their food.

I had the turkey Rueben sandwich with potato salad. It was great - crunchy bread, the right proportions of meat, cheese, sauerkraut, and dressing. The potato salad was great.
My friend had a sausage and cabbage soup with a half a chicken salad on an English muffin. She enjoyed hers a much as I did.

I looked at the menu and decided my husband and I need to go for dinner soon.

The waiter was helpful, attentive but did not bother us, but was available to keep our glasses full.

I really liked this place.

We enjoy Augies on a regular basis. We enjoy the use of local produce and unique dishes. We never leave hungry and are always stuffed to the brim! The staff is top notch and the resturant is very cozy during the winter months. Lunches on the patio are a favorite as well. Stop in duiring the summer and grab a sangria and crab cakes- you will not be disappointed!

Went Downtown...not the west side, nor the east. parked in back and actually ate in downtown Springfield. Excellent food , good service. Be patient, it is not a chain that rushes you in and out-which takes a different mind set. Walk out and see the capitol building, the old Myers building, a city scape. Great all round experience.

Five of us had a birthday dinner celebration and as always we were not disappointed at Augie's. Excellent wines for a reasonable price (go on Tuesday for half price on many botlles). Cheese plate and black bean appetizers were delicious and ample for our group. Jerk chicken entree is outstanding and one of our favorites. 3 of us had off menu items - caesar salads with grilled or blackened chicken or salmon - for lighter appetites. The pecan pie is deep dish and sinfully good. Service was excellent from the moment we were seated until we finished. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Springfield and we'll be back.
