Nice chain family restaurant

We were seated promptly and our waiter was very friendly. The variety of the menu pleased everyone in our party of five.

Just wanted something light to tide us over till dinner out and this proved to be a good pick. The service was excellent even though they had just opened and the soup was perfect. We look forward to visiting them again soon.

We planned on going to Los Jalepeno's, only to find it had closed. Max and Erma's was across the street, so we ended up there. It was an early dinner as I had to get my car from the shop before it closed. So we were seated right away. The waiter was attentive and kept our drinks full - important... More

We were seated right away - unfortunately, it was among a bunch of tables with kids and also one without a server assigned. After being ignored while others arriving after us received their drinks, a waiter and the manager came over and apologized. They offered us a free appetizer, but we declined. In the end, our sodas were comped. I... More

Nothing out of the ordinary and would have rated it higher but I always seem to have meal delays and issues from the kitchen. Chicken tortilla soup is fabulous, black bean burger is wonderful!

My husband ordered fish & chips and I got chicken fajitas. Portions were big and the food was delicious. Service was great. They also have a deal where you can sign up for a... More

We always enjoy our meals at Max & Erma's. They are our "go-to" place for a good burger or for a good bowl of soup - tomato basil is my favorite.

They have decent food, but not a huge variety. The biggest draw is their cookies, which come baked fresh. Those are always delicious. I wish they had a larger variety, but mostly its burgers. I'd like to see a few other dishes on their menu. Its reliable.
