Welcome To Augusta Restauran
Best food off of 180 driving through Iowa !
We are a small independant owned full service restaurant . Chef Ben and wife Jeri Halperin opened Augusta Januray 2008 after moving to Chicago and loosing there homes in New Orleans due to Katrina . They decided with having family in Iowa to come here and open a restaurant to share the skills and knowledge learned by working with two of the greatest Chefs in New Olreans -Gerard Meras and Susan Spicer (worth the google). The Atmosphere here is as much New Orleans as you can get In Iowa set in a charming downtown building built in 1894 . The food here is all made from fresh ingridients from as many local resources as 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.
