Max's is a reasonable deli. It is not a Chicago version of Katz's (there is no Chicago version of Katz's) so the pastrami or the corned beef is not "to die for". Nonetheless, the corned beef on rye ain't bad, and the pastrami, though not...More

Quality meals and efficient service describe Max's. Their nova lox and bagels are wonderful as expected. Surprisingly, their pancakes and tuna sandwich were yummy too. The restaurant is very busy and noisy which makes conversation difficult. Nevertheless, we will return.

I love their pickles. They bring it to your table soon after seating you. They also have the best Rueben sandwich. They are not skimpy with the corn beef. I can never eat the whole sandwich. Stop at the deli and bring home some bagels.

Large portions , friendly staff, easy parking and seating . Latkes are satisfying not greasy as some can be. Price from $5-12 per person .

If you like Jewish type food like Corned Beef, Blintzes and other such items this is the place. They are playing off the name Max and Benny's that is the king for Jewish type food.
