Quality meals and efficient service describe Max's. Their nova lox and bagels are wonderful as expected. Surprisingly, their pancakes and tuna sandwich were yummy too. The restaurant is very busy and noisy which makes conversation difficult. Nevertheless, we will return.

I love their pickles. They bring it to your table soon after seating you. They also have the best Rueben sandwich. They are not skimpy with the corn beef. I can never eat the whole sandwich. Stop at the deli and bring home some bagels.

If you like Jewish type food like Corned Beef, Blintzes and other such items this is the place. They are playing off the name Max and Benny's that is the king for Jewish type food.

If you want deli or just a good meal, Max's is the place. Service is efficient. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Near many hotels and plenty of free parking. Clean and well run. Bug menu. Everything tastes good. Good recipes.

After reading some of the reviews I expected the wait staff to be slow and indifferent. Instead my experience was complete 180 degree, our waiter was friendly and attentive without being brother some. We have been to the famous, well know delis in L.A. and...More
