Every once in a while I want a hot dog the way I remember it when I was a kid. Yes, I always get the onion rings as well. It is the traditional burger joint. I love these places every once in a while.

I have gone to Augie and Ray's for years during working times and off times. Their service is quick and friendly but also relaxing. You will always find locals eating there and non locals are greeted with a friendly smile. Their hot dogs with chili are excellent, fires and onion rings are a great addition. I recommend the fish and... More

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
