Made Fresh to order!

Crazy Mary Sundays only 
Are you over the fast food chains on your road trips ? We are located just off of I-80 only 2 miles north of exit 230. We have the best tenderloin in Iowa and One of Iowa's best Chef's, Ben Halperin, with all kinds of delicious locally sourced, seasonal and truly made from scratch food! Unique specials and local Iowa brews on tap. Yes, we are crazy enough to make our mayo, pickles, dressings, and soups in house. Chef Ben is true to himself and his integrity with his cooking is apparent. He won the top chef under forty award and various awards for outstanding dishes with many other contests. Chef Ben learned his trade with Award winning bravo tv show Top Chef Susan Spicer, the owner of 2 prestigous New Orleans Restaurants . He also worked with Geraud Maris Of The Brennans and now a culinary professor. Oxford is what we could afford after re-locating after hurricane Katrina. We are happy to be here, and would love to share our love and integrity of food with our new neighbors in Iowa! I promise Augusta is worth the drive to Oxford.


Voted Top ten Burger and The Number One Best Tenderloin in Iowa!
Chef Bens Specials are also award winning like his smoked duck with orange sauce, crab encrusted walleye, and Alligator ettoufee.

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. -C

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.-Sayde

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.-Mimi
