They have great food! The hamburgers were great, I also love their sweet potato fries! The place is casual and very friendly people were ready to serve us.

If you are familiar with the Max group of restaurants you know that you will almost certainly have a great dining experience at any of their restaurants, and Max Burger does not disappoint. The food and drinks were excellent but what really stood out was the waitstaff-our waitress on a recent Tuesday night visit was fantastic-friendly, knowledgable, and professional; I... More

This is a really great restaurant for all types of burgers, but I don't think many travelers know that you can order take out! Sometimes the place is packed and you can't get a table or you just want to eat at home or in your hotel. So call them for gourmet burger take out.

Max, oh Max, how can a Max ever be bad? According to this foodie and numerous others not one. Max Burger has been a favorite casual dining destination of ours since its inception, as well as, the Max Groups growing diverse array of quality eateries. Max Burger, for my family, became one of few offering a high end Gluten Free... More

They have text message waiting system. After you sign in, you can see how many are ahead of you on the app. When I first arrived, there was one party ahead, after 10 minutes, there were 7 ahead--apparently, call-aheads get put in in front of walk-ins. The app is worthless as a time predictor. Wait staff attentive, beer ice cold,... More

Went to Max Burger for a business lunch. I ordered the Miss Daisy burger medium. It comes with brie cheese, applewood bacon, apple honey dijonnaise, tomato, lettuce on a toasted brioche bun with fries. The burger was cooked to my liking, exactly medium. (Many places don’t get this right). The bread was perfectly toasted. The burger was really good and... More

I enjoyed my meal here, but there was nothing memorable. Basically your typical non-fast food mid-range burger joint. Kudos to them for having a very burger, but it was really bland. On the plus side, the sweet potato fries were awesome.

This was my third visit to Max Burger the first two were disappointing, both shortly after they opened. A friend told me to try it one more time and it was worth the visit. I had a burger stuffed with blue cheese just outstanding, my wife had a burger that was nestled between two grilled cheese sandwiches. I thought that... More

I didn't used to be a burger person... that is, until I tried Max Burger. The restaurant itself is clean and stylish, on a weekday at lunch time it's filled with men in suits having their business lunches. I ordered The Alfred and it was delicious. Best burger I've probably ever encountered. Never thought I could have so much love... More

Plan B or Max Burger? That's the debate and everyone has their opinion. I'll vote Max Burger as the best option. The burgers are delicious. The different variations are a little more upscale and the sides are great. Nice bar, albeit cramped. You cannot go wrong at Max Burger.
