Came here based on a few recommendation and definitely wasn't disappointed.
This is a huge biergarten with lots of chestnut trees, hundreds of tables and benches, tons of food options, and a fairly good selection of beers as well.
Given the name, you have a pretty good idea of what beers are served here. Unlike some other Augustiner spots, this location serves up the Edelstoff...which is a nice change of pace and equally as good as the normal helles. In addition, they also have the weiss (which looks like a dunkel weiss, FYI) available, however they're poured from bottles. I don't think Augustiner does draft versions of that beer. The dunkel and helles are both missing, but that's typical for most gartens. It's pretty rare to find an entire line-up. I'm not 100% sure, but I think they might have the bottled pils as well.
Food is available at a series of stands. Pork knuckles, pretzels, obatzda, leberkase, frites, ribs, etc. are all available and the prices aren't too bad.
It's only a few blocks from the central station so if you're only going to be in Munich for a couple of hours, this is easily the best option.
For that matter, even for a weeklong trip - this spot's great just because it's the prototypical biergarten.
Plus, supposedly there's a lot of Bavarian political clout at this spot. People watching can be a lot of fun.

The keller has a huge outdoor and indoor area. Who cares! Go inside and look for the sign that points to the keller and go downstairs into the old lagering halls and get a stein of beer! The atmosphere is great and the ceilings are just so amazingly BRICK. I was in love as soon as I saw it. I can't wait to go back.

Selection isn't the best; 5 beers. Food was pretty expansive.

Visited the outside Biergarten while on business in Germany. I never drank Augustiner beer before but the locals who took me said this is the most popular beer in Munich. It was the summer, so we sat outside on a beautiful day and ordered liters of their Helles Lagers. Wow! Best lager I've ever had! The beer was so smooth and drinkable I finished the liter in a matter of minutes. There is nothing better than drinking great beer in a high energy outside venue where everybody is just enjoying life. I tried to get their Helles Lager in the US but they only sell Edellstaff and Maximater. Both are good beers but their fresh Helles is the best!

I visited 2 times once on a slow afternoon for lunch and 2nd on a busy night. It a nice place for a quiet lunch but at 7pm or later on a June weekday the place was mobbed with people. It can be hard to get a table, we were in the self service area.
For lunch I have Nurnberg wursts which where decent and reasonably nice.

This place was "ok", this being said i got there late and it was cold so no one was there really. The beer is whatever, Augustiner is kind of weak compared to the other german beers. I would have enjoyed it more if the place was crowded. It was strange seeing a sea of empty benches and imagining the mayhem that would occur if those benches were full... I wanted that mayhem.... my parents went to the inside part and said it was the best place ever.... but I can only vouch for what i experienced

This ended up being my favorite place to drink in Munich during my trip. Location is nice, just enough out of the downtown to miss the worst of the masses. Very nice outdoor area that even features a projector for soccer games, can get quite crowded and rowdy during nice weather and big games. Didn't go to the indoor area as the weather was awesome. Standard Munich beer selection and standard Munich tourist prices. Standard beer garden self serve. Food was slightly better than the hofbrau and slightly cheaper.

My favorite of the beer gardens.
