BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. -- After a devastating fire left it in ashes this summer, Augie's Family Style Italian Restaurant is now celebrating its grand reopening at its new temporary location.
The building caught on fire the night of August 5th and was destroyed. Although no one was hurt, the fire threatened to hurt the business. However, Augie's received a lot of support and quickly got back on its feet.
Loyal customers were happy to be back enjoying meals at the new location on Low Street.
"I'm very happy because I know it's gonna be the same thing, the same people are involved and the food is always top notch," one person said.
"We're always satisfied and we can't finish it all and we always have a doggie bag for the next day," said another person.
The owner, Augie Vitiello, says he still plans to rebuild on the old location on Church Avenue.
