Don't Waste your Time! – Each and EVERY time we get our food late! EVEN THE SOUP! Take note that their motto is "Critics are NOT welcome"Geez! I wonder why! It's bad enough that I finish my soda and my soup isn't even there. I almost walked out on them, and even when I spoke to the manager, he didn't really seem to care. Food was good however, but with the POOR service, ambience, and rudeness, I wouldn't waste my time going to this restaurant! There are TONS out in the city well worth my money than this place!
*shrug* Nothing to write home about – The food is good and the portions are HUGE, but these guys are a big chain and I have never gotten a very indigenous feel from them. They aren't local and I just get the idea that they are more concerned with their appearance than actually providing a good experience.
Yum in excess! – Outstanding food in abundance--great for sharing. Can be noisy when crowded--and frequently is. Great place to be sung 'Happy Birthday' to by the waitstaff.
Childbirth and corned beef!! – It's a traditon for me that whenever I have a baby, someone runs out and brings a Max's Ruben to my hospital bedside! I think my childrens' celluar make-up is mostly Max's Ruben since I consumed an unnatural number of them during pregnancy as well. While they didn't do much for my figure, these sandwiches were as comforting as they get.
Best West Coast Deli – If you are into sandwiches or dinner-sized salads, this place can't be beat! When I have one of those yens for corned beef, pastrami, real turkey or a Reuben sandwich, only Max's will do. And Max's Opera Cafe is perfect befoer the Symphony, Opera or Ballet. Excellent large salads, and they are amenable to substitutions -- a plus for many of us with allergies. They also have great drinks, excellent service. Any one of the Max's can be counted on for a great salad or sandwich. Their lunch specials are really good too. Desserts too - my favorite is the chocalate covered macaroon, but I bet you can't eat it all at once.
Extra Everything Please! – Meals at Max's are served in excess, so be prepared to bring a doggie bag home for Fido. Food is generally good and filling.
