“Huge Portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stumbled across this delicatessen in a huge rain storm and found myself looking through the huge menu choices! Would eat here again. Very friendly staff and quick service.

“Best Corned Beef in Birmingham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The best Deli in Birmingham. On any given workday you could have to wait for awhile to get in but it is while with the wait. The food is not kosher but still amazing! The hamburgers are better than any I have ever had.

“NO NEW YORK DELI HERE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

They claim to serve New York deli style sandwiches. I lived in Connecticutt, just about 30 minutes on the train from NYC. Oh, how I miss the delis & the pizzerias along with many other things that only NYC can give you. Max's Deli can only offer a false claim to a NYC deli. The pastrami was so tough with little flavor. The latkes are not any better. There are certain items that you do not take out of a jar & call made from scratch. Please do not spend your money on this establishment. One last thing. If good, friendly service is what you are looking for then do not even consider this place.One word -- RUDE . They cannot even speak when you go in or thank you for coming.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Nothing special. Just your average Deli. It's just an upscale subway. Subway is cheaper. If you are looking for an enjoyable meal, I suggest eating somewhere else.

Visited Max's several times. Staff was always nice but I found the food to be average. Haven't returned for some time.
