Always worth the trip – We have been to Max's perhaps 5 times now. I will say; one time our food was a little dissapointing, not as wonderful as the time before but still good nonetheless. We went back since the other times our meals were terrific and sure enough, we were thrilled with our delicious choices. We travel far to go especially now that we moved out of state, yes, it's that good and well worth the trip.
disappointingly bland – The barbequed brisket was totally flavorless; I have a hard time imagining how one could produce such a bland piece of meat except by boiling it until all remnants of flavor were extracted. it was served with caramelized onions; these too were blander than I would have thought possible -- again, it seemed hard to imagine how such flavorless onions could be produced without a deliberate effort. The side dishes were unremarkable; my wife had garlic potatoes, which were passable; I had a small dish of chili, which was watery and, need i say it, bland (although it had more flavor than the boiled -- excuse me, barbequed -- brisket.) A memorably disappointing experience.
Best Southern Barbecue in the area – you can smell the hickory smoked meat as soon as you walk in. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, warm colors on the walls of the rooms. It can be a bit noisy; no sound absorbent material. I have been maybe 8 times over the course of several years, and had barbecued chicken, pulled pork, crab cakes and catfish, along with combinations of great cheese grits, tender collards and garlic mashed. I have always been very happy with the food; never had better food of this type anywhere. I just wish they were open for lunch.
