Best food off of I-80 driving through Iowa !

We are a small, independently owned, full-service restaurant . Chef Ben and wife Jeri Halperin opened Augusta in January of 2008 after losing their homes in New Orleans due to Hurricaine Katrina . They decided to share the skills and knowledge they learned working with two of the great Chefs of New Orleans -Gerard Meras and Susan Spicer (worth the Google). We want to bring the relaxed and festive atmosphere of New Orleans to the folks of Iowa. We settled into a charming building built in 1894 in downtown Oxford. The food here is all made fresh from as many local resources as possible .

We appreciate a phone call to let us know your coming out 319-828-2252

we enjoy providing the best service possible.-

We're honored to offer the pork tenderloin awarded "Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich in Iowa," by the Iowa Pork Producers Association.

Here's what some of our guests have had to say:

You cannot beat Augusta for value. The food is phenomenal, the kind of stuff where you just want to close your eyes when you're chewing it. And the price is unbelievable. Try the shrimp poboy. Really, really great stuff. I wish them all the best.

You cannot go wrong with anything that you order, as almost 100% of the food is made there...from mayonnaise, buns, pickles, salad dressings, all are made to delight with the flavor of New Orleans in the guise of mid-western home cooking. Ingredients are as local as they can be, with beef and pork from Iowa and local produce in season.

I loved this place! Being from New Orleans and travelling so far, it was wonderful to find a place to eat that knew what cajun food is supposed to taste like! Thank you to the chef and owners for doing this New Orleans girl proud. I am going to tell everyone I know, if you're going to Iowa, or just driving through, the stop off in Oxford is completely worth it! Thank you again for such an extraordinary dining experience.
