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.
