Probably the best pork chop I've ever had in life. And I don't even like pork chops, so that's saying a lot.
My boyfriend and I came in on a Saturday at 6 pm. Almost everything you've read is true - giant servings of pork chops that you won't be able to finish, cash only, and needing to make ressos weeks in advance. But I'm not sure about these other reviews saying that the staff was rude. They were super nice to us and made us feel like we had been going to Augustino's for years, even though it was just our first time there.
To start, they give you some bread, as well as two complimentary pieces of bruschetta with tomatoes. This was amazing. I could have just eaten a whole plate of these for dinner. We also ordered the clams casino to start, which are clams on the half shell with breadcrumbs and bacon. Can't really go wrong with anything with bacon in it.
To drink, we decided to order their $20 bottle of riesling that everyone was talking about. It was too sweet for us, but it's a pretty good value if you like sweet wine. Augustino's is not BYOB but their other bottles are pretty reasonably priced as well.
For entrees, he ordered the Breaded Pork Chops with Vinegar and Hot Peppers. This came out sizzling, as two thick pieces. I ordered their special of the day, which was a Prime Ribeye cooked in a spicy tomato sauce. This was a huge piece as well, and I was only able to finish about half of it. Entrees come with a small side of pasta in marinara sauce.
Tip - they charge $5 for sharing dishes so you might as well just order your own and take the rest home for lunch the next day.
