    if ever in Indy, you MUST come here for brunch. the food is incredible (except if you're gluten-free). the staff is super sweet and fun (ask for DiDi). and tell them it's your friend's birthday.

    The best soulfood in the city. Hands down there is no comparison! If you're ever in Indy this is a must. The jumbo chicken wings are my personal favorite full of flavor, moist and Dammit delicious.

    Always get the sweet tea! It's the bomb at Maxine's. The chicken at Maxine's is without peer--smothered boneless and bone-in alike. Collard greens like your grandma made and peach butter to die for.

    If you don't eat pork, you'll feel right at home. They only serve chicken, beef and fish. No lard is used in their food preparation. Try the sweet potato waffle. It's the best!

    Smothered chicken with rice is too good! Southern classics all in one place. Busy restaurant and can be noisy but it is soooo worth it!

    Pan fried dark meat is the BOMB! Love the house potatoes and the collards w/a little vinegar. Yummy

    Getting the chicken tenders on the waffle may not be traditional, but you get way more meat and its easier to eat.

    The sweet potato waffle is the bomb! This place beats Roscoe's C&W hands down! The wait can sometimes be long, but it's often because they're cooking up more chicken. Be patient. You won't be sorry!

    Ohhhh, Maxine. You know how to make the most amazing chicken & waffles. And whatever you do to your potatoes - I'm in love. Also, why didn't I think of a fried chicken omelette?

    Ask to sit at a back table... Front door has a nice cool breeze if you enjoy that sort of thing during winter.
