I went to Max's Steaks on a Sunday around 5pm. The line wasn't very long, but the wait was about 45min-1hr total. We only had about 10 people in front of us so I wasn't expecting to wait that long. And about 5 of the...More

You will not find Max's on your average tourist itinerary. Nor will you hear much about it in the friendly arguments about Pat's vs. Geno's. Perhaps its because of its location. Perhaps Max's is not all that well connected to media big mouths. Perhaps people...More

If you're in Philly this is the place to get a real Philly Cheese Steak. Don't go to the other two places in South Philly. The meat is perfect and the bread is soft. Once you order you have to pay in cash. Then you...More

This is my only and favorite spot to grab the best cheesesteak. There is parking & loads of stores nearby.

In town on business, a friend who is local recommended Max's if we wanted a great cheese steak (vs. the tourist trap venues). So glad we followed her advice. There was a short line when we arrived, which moved pretty quick. Customers were diverse...local people...More

We came here for that very reason...we saw it in the movie Creed (one of the best movies of 2015). We loved the Philly atmosphere. A crowded joint where you stand in line talking and laughing with complete strangers. The sandwiches were huge and on...More

The cheese steaks at Max's were excellent!!! The line was out the door even on a wet winter day. Well worth the wait. We were visiting from NY so we asked a local standing in line the difference between the cheese steak hoagie and the...More

You are correct, it is hard to find a bad cheese steak in Philly and you are right on about Max's sandwiches. But the next time you visit Philly, please stop by Jim's steaks on South Street and order the mushroom cheese... More
