Still very good

We have been here many times since our review three years ago. Always good. This time we had pancit palabok, pancit bihon, kare-kare and crispy pork hock. All was excellent. Try the calamansi juice...wonderful even though a little tart. This is a really nice casual family style eatery.

Came here for dinner with a big group. We ordered the appetizer sampler, which indicated on the menu that it came with sweet potato fries. However, when it arrive at our table, it had regular fries instead. When asked, our server explained that it was a typo on the menu. I'm not sure why we were not told this when... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants the service is fantastic, the food is excellent and the prices are good. I highly recommend Max’s to anyone who enjoys authentic Philippine cuisine and to anyone who never tried and always wanted to.

Basically a chicken place. Lots of choice and they will make vegetarian if asked for. Service friendly and prompt. They make the food after ordering so it takes about half an hour to come but they warn you of that. Prices fair. Recommended.

After great reviews from friends, my family and I decided to try out Max's. We were so extremely disappointed; the food ( all of it ) was so salty we couldn't eat it. The egg noodles tasted like they were coated in the same sauce as Kraft Dinner and the fried chicken had no flavour.....all salt? My dad ordered a... More

Poor service and even the rice was not properly cooked, my kids were frustrated. Considering the gratuity is already included they should have at least show that they deserve it. Anyway, being a Filipino, I still gave additional tip and since we know they are expecting it. We were never checked and never asked even once of how are we... More

This was my first time trying Filipino food and this was a great experience. I went with 3 Filipinia friends and they helped me out by ordering a selection of dishes for use to share. I highly recommend this approach. The family style approach was the way many other tables were also doing and is the best volume of food... More

Today was the first after a long while that my mom, dad, Lola (grandma) and I went to Max's for dinner! It was like reliving my childhood! We ordered a whole chicken, fried lumpiang ubod and pansit canton (mom's fave). Although a tid bit oily (everything was deep fried) it was good! I just drank a lot of lemon water!... More

Very tasty Max's Fried Chicken which I think is cooked and prepared better that their branch in New Jersey. Place is also clean, where you see employees cleaning or tidying up the tables. Pansit bihon and Pansit Palabok are good and the same as other franchises/branches in the USA. I was surprised as well with 10% tip already added into... More
