Description: We are Hildebrandt's. A family-owned, German-inspired delicatessen with a heaping helping of Southern hospitality. We have character. We have style. Our wares and fare have been time-tested and Augusta-approved since 1879, when Nicholas Hildebrandt founded the store as a local grocery. Since then, Hildebrandt's has evolved into both a deli and destination for items of convenience and distinctiveness. We invite you to join us, and to share your experience with others many times over, creating new memories of delicious food, unique gifts and fine conversation.

The sandwiches here are simply amazing. An authentic experience. Think authentic NYC style deli with a strong Southern accent. I had the Reuben and it was perfection. The potato salad is divine. Probably some of the best potato salad I have ever had. This place dates back to the 1880s and has been in business continuously. They are obviously doing something right, Staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place for lunch if you are in Augusta.

Had lunch here yesterday before going on the trolley tour. We always like to find locally owned restaurants and this one did not disappoint. Small place with charm. Even sold a few grocery items. My salad trio was delicious.

We stopped by for lunch today. The sandwiches (Reuben and Italian) and German potato salad were amazing. The staff is as down to earth as they come. We will return soon!

Reviews said very popular; get there early. I did; 10 minutes after in opened. Number of customers there: ONE (me). When I left 40 minutes later, there was three (counting me). I had the "special"; the Rueben (with corned beef). It was a good sandwich, nothing "special". I have had many Ruebens as good, some better. Also had the highly rated German potato salad. My mother made better and you can find better in any German Deli on Long Island. Last, but not least:. $2 for a small bottle of diet coke. Really? Next time I drive 100 miles to Augusta, I will have lunch elsewhere.

Many thanks for visiting our family-owned business and giving us a try. We apologize for not meeting or exceeding your expectations, so much so that you felt compelled to write a 'not so positive' review. We wish you all the best.

This deli has been in Augusta since 1869 and is still run by the same family. It does not try to dress itself up to look over 100 years old. It simply is. It doesn't try to look quaint, in fact it doesn't try to be anything. It simply is. The people who work there are delightful and authentic. The antiques and photos that line the walls weren't designed to look old fashioned. They truly are. The place is exactly what it has always been and the food is delicious. In a world full of restaurants that are trying to be something, go here to feel real. See the best part of America and enjoy the people and the food.
