    The food and atmosphere was excellent. Make sure to come on an empty stomach because the portions are more than enough. Maybe have a designated driver too cuz the drinks were good but strong, lol.

    Maxie's puts its spin on Southern regional dishes, with hearty entrées such as pulled pork in eastern Carolina-style vinegar sauce with slaw and beans, or shrimp in tasso sauce over creamy grits.
