With the choice of many delis in our immediate area, I was rather taken aback by the price of sandwiches at the deli. Wait staff was nice and the atmosphere is okay for older folks, not the best selection with kids.

in a suburb brimming with delis, this is one of the best...quality and service are excellent, a bit pricey and you may have a long wait for a table if you're dining in.

The deli experience is not what it used to be. Max's is average for today. It has the usual traditional deli foods in a crowded noisy environment, which is part of the atmosphere I guess. Nothing is particularly special.

Just had supper with a big group (adults & kids) at Max's. Menu is so wide-ranging that we took a while to decide; server was attentive & patient -- especially with youngsters and juvenile adults. Sandwiches (corned beef & chopped live, CB and pastrami, pastrami and tongue) were tasty and GENEROUS. One in the group had chicken-in-the-pot. which was a... More

Max's Deli is a good and reliable deli, nothing special to write home about, but nothing missing from the menu and selections either.

Visited Max's Deli for the first time and have to admit that it is one of the best deli's that I have ever been to. Very sizeable portions, great service and the food was excellent. If you have not been here I would highly recommend it - it's definitely worth the trip!
