What a pleasant surprise. More than it appears. Nothing fancy, but talk about delicious. This was my first time here. 10 bucks gets you a bowl of delicious chicken chili, a fantastic italian sub, AND a Caesars salad. Absolutely crazy good tasting food. They offered me tastes of a couple of salad offerings, as well. This is gonna be a... More

Haven't been here in several years, but it's just the same as the last time I was there -- yummy salads, quiche, soup and sandwiches. Today we went all out and had the salad sampler -- a HUGE plate with a giant portion of their caesar salad in the middle, circled by their other 7 salads in smaller sample portions:... More

Cafe Max has wonderful salads, and I would challenge lots of folks to find better. This is a very casual place to eat, you come in and go thru a line ordering the salads you want. The folks behind the counter will fill your plate - and I do mean fill - and hand it to you at the end.... More

I love the salads here and have gone here for years. Always good, always consistent, always busy! I usually get the salad trio, but the quiches are really great as well. The portions are huge and are great for sharing! A must!!

I usually get the salad combo which consists of three different salads. The seafood salad and chicken salad are always in my three and I vary on the third. Not much atmosphere, yet the food is genuine and the servers are great. It's cafeteria style so be prepared to stand in line!

Cafe Max has the best salads in DFW. Their Caesar and their Grilled Chicken salad are superb! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
