As a newcomer to Augusta, I had to get my priorities straight and that means finding the food! I did not even bother with Dominoes or Pizza hut for fear of reprisals from my friends back in Chicago. So upon tooling around this place, I came across a great restaurant that has a great atmosphere, plenty of beer, outdoor/indoor sitting and really good pizza! I could not believe it myself. I thought that this place would not be so bad afterall!
Favorite Dish: Large Pizza and Beer!

Old wooden floors creak when you enter through the front door of this 125 year-old family owned store that is still open for business six days a week. Started in 1879 by German-born Nicholas Hildebrandt as a grocery store, it now also has a deli restaurant, run by Luann Hildebrandt a fourth generation owner. Photos and memorabilia surround the marble topped tables in the little eating area. The marble is from the original counters in the grocery store.
There are several excellent choices of cheese and different meats for sandwiches.
They also have home made cole slaw and hot German potato salad. Several different drinks are offered.
This place has been featured in the Augusta Chronicle several times since we have lived here and we finally got down there to experience it for ourselves.
Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed the hot German Potato Salad.
Address: At the corner of Ellis St. and 6th Street
Mally's is located in a very old, quaint building near the Riverwalk. There is a warming fire burning in winter days and cozy booths to enjoy a meal. They have a great bagel selection that comes with a full breakfast.

Great service, too.
Address: Reynolds and 7th

Sconyer's offers a variety of BBQ plates and great ribs. Enjoy generous platters of hash and pork or smoked turkey in a rustic two story log cabin. On cold winter afternoons and evenings they have three big fireplaces going using real split wood. You can almost always see someone you know there; a neighbor, a cousin or a friend. Their staff is very friendly. Be sure to take a stick of peppermint on the way out!
Favorite Dish: Sconyer's hash is great.

We just came back from a restaurant in Evans called Mai Thai, which
is located in the Publix shopping center. I had the Pad Thai with
an appetizer of spring rolls & it was delicious.
Almost as good as the food was the decor! This restaurant is about
a year old and still has a crisp decor. Even the edge of the
floor/wall is pristine. This restaurant looks like it just walked
out of a comfortable yet contemporary decorating book.
For our almost 2 year old son, we ordered Chicken Satay, which is an
appetizer. If you're concerned about spicy food for your kids & get
this appetizer, make sure the kids don't dip their chicken in the
peanut sauce or the cucumber sauce that comes with it. Ask for
ketchup or dip the chicken in the sauce that comes with the spring
rolls, which is sweet tasting.
Great service & our sweet tea glasses never got empty. Hope you get
Favorite Dish: Pad Thai, hands down! It's somewhat sweet, with peanuts and a lemon/lime taste. No curry! Oh, and it comes with shrimp. Yum!
Address: 4272 Washington Road. Suite 1; Evans Towne Centre
Directions: From Augusta take the 520 west toward Martinez. Take a left onto Washington, and just outside of town will be the Publix shopping center (in Evans) where the Thai Restaurant is located. Enjoy!

We ate the BBQ sampler, $50 to feed 4 people ribs, chicken, frieds, sweet cornbread muffins, corn cobs & shredded bbq pork/beef. Satiric wall decorations of picnics & family dining add a cozy feel.
Favorite Dish: I really liked the bbq chicken. The ribs were tasty, too.
No restaurant on this trip could be called a 'Favorite'. T-Bonz on Washington rd had great steaks, but the service left something to be desired. In contrast, the local Red Lobster had great service, so-so food. Famous Dave's BBQ (also on Washington) was good for lunch, and probably the best all around restaurant this trip.
Favorite Dish: Famous Dave's BBQ - BBQ Ribs
Directions: All of the above locations were on Washington Street near the Rt 20 offramp.Add to your Trip Planner
