Eating fried chicken at Max's is a Filipino tradition. The chicken is usually moist, but rather on the oily side. They also offer other Filipino dishes, but with varied results. Their soups taste like they were made from instant powdered mixes purchased in a supermarket, their chicken burger is dry and bland, but other Filipino dishes like camaron (shrimp) and kare-kare (oxtail in peanut sauce) are okay.
The place was renovated a few years ago, so it looks nothing like its classic appearance that would elicit childhood memories from Baby Boomer and Gen X Filipinos, but it's cool, clean and well-lighted. Service is usually good, but can get rather slow when there are special promos going on (like during their annual Chicken-All-You-Can event).
It's worth it to try what is known as the house that fried chicken built, but I wouldn't eat here on a regular basis.
