HRW - 3rd year to have dinner there. What a value- portions are huge and 4 courses vs. 3. Landon was our waiter- knowledgeable- great suggestions and service! One of the BEST fried chicken in Houston. Presentation was picture perfect and the food was served hot! Always a great time here- never a disappointment! Highly recommend!

We heard great things about this restaurant and when we found it on the Houston Restaurant Week, we were excited to try it. We started by ordering a carafe of wine. Half of a carafe appeared in a well filled caraffe. We said it should be a whole carafe. The server returned with a carafe about 2/3 full and quickly... More

Came in for brunch with some friends. Not to much to choose on their brunch menu. Fried chicken was totally greasy, waffles were just ok. Seemed they didn't put some effort on it. Grits were awful and very disappointed with the service. The waiter needs some training urgently.

I've been here a couple times and it never disappoints! It's always amazing service food, drinks, and good times. We came here with a couple friends and all ordered things to share. This is the best fried chicken ever!!! The egg sandwich is huge and delicious! On the sweeter side the red velvet pancakes and Creme brûlée French toast are... More

Dined for brunch on a very busy sunday after mass. Would recommend going at a non-prime seating time. Very loud and not much space. You can feel the movement in the room. The fried chicken seems to be the dish of the day! I ordered the french toast which was disappointing. Barely warm texas toast. Blah! My husband had the... More

I had dinner with 3 friends for Houston Restaurant Weeks. The loud music was hard to overcome but we did enjoy the evening. I expected more of my dessert (bread pudding) but the fried chicken was to die for. I brought some home and made chicken and waffles the next day for breakfast. Still delish!!! The Max and Cheese was... More

My husband and I visited for the first time during Restaurant Weeks. I was stunned by the quality of the food and the generous size of the portions. The fried chicken is incredible, the appetizers impeccable, and the brownie was the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is casual but energetic. The staff made sure everything was to our liking....

Great food, but it gets packed for Sunday brunch and they don't take reservations so go early/late. If you're tempted to go to the Fairview location instead, don't, it's a cute location, but not the same quality. Lucille's in the museum district actually has better fried chicken. The owner used to work at Max's and his "double fried" chicken is... More

We took an unexpected early happy hour /dinner arrival on a not so busy day and the food was still happening. The fried chicken finger appetizer and the fried chicken dinner was one of a kind and highly recommended. The daily special was the snapper ceviche which was outstanding and fresh as well as the pork sliders. YOU will not... More
