    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

    Ask to be seated in Lindsay's , MJ's, or Austin's section. And Victor is always there to make sure you always have everything you need. The food at brunch always great. My favorite? Too many to list!

    Order the southern fried chicken. You can have them split your dish in case you want to share for $2. The fried egg sandwich is also delicious. Complete this scrumptious brunch with bubbles!

    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

    $5 wine list available during happy hour. Servers are happy to help you find a glass of wine that matches both your taste and price range at any time.

    Max’s has to be the only place in town where you can get amazing wine and tasty fried chicken. The restaurant and wine bar offers an expansive food menu and they’re open for lunch! Read more

    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.

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

    Go with no more than two other people, sit at the bar, and do tastings and learn with Matt. He is fantastic. Then buy bottles of the wine you loved at retail.

    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!

    The jar of hummus with pita triangles was amazing! I also had the burger which was good, but a little over-charred on the outside. Overall I would definitely go back.

    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!

    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.

    LEGIT! Don't let the name or the decor fool you. This place has some of the best food around. If you crave comfort food, Max's is the place to be.

    Their Famous Fried Shicken...it's not bad. Personally, I like a kick in the mouth when it comes to flavor. Good vibes, good wine, good beer. ^.^

    Bison slider is amazing! Bone marrow popcorn is a fun choice too. I love me some quinoa but the quinoa risotto here was watery.

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

    Though max's is a far cry from what I'd call a dive, it has a nice atmosphere. Great lunch menu! Nice beer selection & great wine.

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

    The fried egg sandwich is HUGE; ask your server for a half sandwich if you're not extremely hungry.
