Suburban deli

I have been to Maxs several times. I think the breakfasts are better value than the lunch and dinner, although they often have specials.

Although one family member enjoyed his reuben, I am giving only a poor review because two of us were so disappointed with two major specialties which I rely on, since I do not eat meat. The cheese blintzes were so sweet I practically got a headache and the cinnamon/nutmeg were too strong. The dough, however, was nice. The gefilte fish... More

Very cute deli located in highland park. They have everything from bagels, meats and sweets! Employees are polite and courteous. Patrons are also friendly and great to talk to.

The attitude of the owner is the sorest I have ever experienced. I requested a cookie label in a case, he reached for a different one and then proceeded to tell me to stop talking. As I expressed my surprise at his words the berated and insulted me. I told him he had lost a customer and he reposnded good... More

Terrific deli. The real deal. Love the fact that breakfast is served at all hours. The take out counter looked fabulous too.

Its always sad to see a very good restaurant dying. Have been going to Max's Deli for over 20 years. Great Jewish deli fare. Incredible corned beef, pastrami, potato pancakes, fresh bagels and wonderful deserts. My family went to Max's yesterday for lunch. Should have realized someone wasn't right when the restaurant was 20% full at 12:30. Host handed us... More

We eat here quite often, since the restaurant is not far from our home and because the food is usually good. If you are looking for a good deli sandwich, there is a huge amount of meat on the half sandwich. There is also a reduced price for soup if you order it with a half or whole sandwich. Their... More

Think this is expensive for what it is--bought a quart of chicken soup for over $9 and now will keep my own homemade chicken soup in freezer for when I need some good soup.

My mother and I came here and we both had ordered omelets which we thoroughly enjoyed. The service was courteous, friendly, and efficient. My bagel was fresh and delicious. The coffee was just average which is why I'm only rating this restaurant very good instead of excellent. I'd return.

The food and service at Max's Deli is generally good, but one important thing is missing: a good cup of coffee. Go for the food; get your coffee somewhere else.
