My hubby and I went for lunch on a Friday. I got the original waffle with chicken tenders which was super yummy! Crispy chicken and perfect waffle and butter! My hubby got the smothered chicken and was very satisfied! Good parking but tight. I could eat there every week if I lived near there!

If you could be place in a coma by food this is the place that will do it. Very busy, but very much worth it. Not expensive for the quality of food that you get. The different flavor waffles and apple butter are a HIT. If you haven't been here you are truly missing out.

We had chicken and waffles, both chicken tenders and wings, and they were both fabulous! My husband had the sausage omelet and loved it! But the best part was how gracious and kind the owners and staff were. They truly wanted to know that you were having a great experience and that they were exceeding all expectations. They made you... More

Me! :) My family and I heard about this restaurant from a cousin. Our first attempt to eat there was on a Monday, but it was closed. Had we read all the details on the web when we searched for the location, we would have read that Maxine's is closed on Mondays. (Reading is so fundamental). *lol* Anyway, we returned... More

I found this place on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint on taste or pricing. I had the Cinnamon Waffle and three huge chicken wings with a side of macaroni and cheese. They were absolutely delicious!!! You had an option of Plain,Strawberry,Cinnamon, or Peach for your waffle. The service was quick and attentive. We were there during brunch time very... More

Slow. On my first visit the only good thing was the chicken wings. Beef sausage was awful. Food was lukewarm. Undoubtedly because it had been sitting and sitting and waiting...did I mention the service was slow? I don't know what the hype is all about. Its loud in there! Concrete floors. Zero ambiance. Overpriced food. Second visit...slow service. Food was... More

Whether you have the traditional waffle or try one of Maxine's other varieties you can't beat this wonderful near downtown restaurant for great food and exceptional friendly service. Consistently good every time in all areas!
