    This champagne & fried chicken joint's Summer menu matches highbrow tastes with gluttonous, comfort-style prep. Recommended: The Roasted Lockhart Quail with Peach Butter and house Bacon Marmalade. Read more

    Competitively priced wines, mouth-wateringly good fried foods & a motto that reads: "Fried Chicken & Champagne After Midnight-Why the Hell Not?" Get Pan Borracho, Fried Chicken and Alligator Beignets.

    Serves Teo Gelato. We find Max's wine dive to be a great place to hang for food and drinks when you are downtown

    One might question their definition of “dive,” but here’s what this ATX outpost indisputably offers up: an urban/industrial/aggressively "hip" space, legit fried chicken, and a superior brunch option. Read more

    Any one of their 100-plus bottles is available by the glass, and be sure to check in later at night for their "reverse happy hour." Read more

    The vegan Max 'n Cheese is unbelievably amazing. They use cashews to make the cheese flavor. Order it and thank me later.

    Get the fried chicken, if only a piece on the side! So freakin' delicious. And the fried egg sandwich for brunch is a must!

    Awesome happy hour menu with great wines and beers for less dough! Pitchers of MWD sangria, anyone?

    I will never go back there again. The hostess was very unpleasant and no one waited on us in 10 minutes

    Nothing like hanging with great long time friends for Sunday Brunch! And get the poppy seed pancakes with lavender maple syrup, or the smoked salmon and cream cheese omelet!

    It's all about the truffle egg sandwich, then sub in fried pickles as your side! That's how it's done.

    Stephanie Klein · March 12, 2010
  • Eric B.

    Fried Egg Sandwich is awesome, but huge. It could feed 2 easy.

    Eric Bonilla · February 23, 2010
  • Jeff R.

    Go in late night and order the ribs, they are on reverse happy hour, and are (almost) better than reverse cow girl. Too much?

    Jeff Rider · July 29, 2009

    Reverse Happy Hour for the win!

    Can't beat the grilled cheese and tomato soup combo after a great night out. This place is great for late nights.

    Best damn truffle Mac n cheese I've ever had. They let me get a half order too, which, with the awesome arugula pear salad I had, was the perfect amount!

    Sofie Johnson · December 16, 2014
  • Rachael

    Grilled cheese sandwich (too greasy), tomato soup (needed cream) and chips (bland) were so very disappointing.

    Rachael · October 8, 2014
  • Allie F.

    Awesome wine selection and two words: pesto popcorn.

    Allie Fox · September 7, 2014
  • Loreal R.

    Order the chicken and waffles but honestly you don't need the waffles because the chicken is good. The waffle has orange zest so be careful if you are allergic.
