I didn't know what to think, if the food would be the same out here in Auburn. But the food here was just the same and wonderful. After reading that review about the Patty Melt, that is what I had to have! I was hoping for the same reaction! YES, that was one good patty melt! I went for the... More

This restaurant is adjacent to the Holiday Inn were I stayed with friends, so dinner in the restaurant was a no brainer to avoid drinking and driving. World Series game on, so the crowd was active and lots of warmth and fun, both with locals and travelers. Friendly service, full bar. I must say I had the biggest, fresh baked... More

This is where the old Marie Callender's was. It's convenient if you're staying at the Holiday Inn, but the food emphasizes convenience more than quality. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed. The decor is outdated, but the service was fine.

Max's is a full service restaurant, reasonably priced and just off the freeway (80) in Auburn, CA (exit Hwy 49). Rather than stay late in SF and have to drive in the dark on your way to Tahoe/Reno, leave early and stop here for dinner. You will find something for everybody on the menu. It happens that there is an... More

I have always have been a big fan of Max's Diners and even the original Opera Cafe in SF, but now that I've moved to Reno, it's too far. Max's has the best Patty Melt have ever had in my life! And believe you me, I have had a lot of Patty Melts in my day! So, when I found... More

Max's is a lovely restaurant that offers a fine dining experience. You can go casual or a bit more dressed up, but the food is a 4 star presentation. It offers "dinners" or burgers or sandwiches and they are all delicious! The pastrami sandwich is great, the Schnitzel is great.....it's a perfect choice for a "nicer" dining experience.

Second time eating here and it's still good. Sandwiches are huge, music great but not too loud and waitress was attentive. It was busy but food came out quickly. Enjoyed my visit once again!

Had been wanting to try this restaurant. Drove to Auburn, CA, to give it a try. It was July 5, 2014, 3:30 pm, not real hungry, so we decided to split a patty melt. Ordered it medium, and it came out well done, and burnt on the bottom and not hot, coupled with it took so long for it to... More

Very convenient to the highway with lots of parking. This is part of the Holiday Inn but can stand alone as a nice place to have a convenient meal. We especially enjoyed breakfast.
