Because of that, I probably wouldn't go there again. I expected hot food to be served hot.

For those not familiar with Filipino food, this is the place to go. Unlike other Filipino restaurants where you choose your meal from a steam table, at Max's, you are seated and order from a very nice menu with lots of photos and good descriptions of the menu items. They are known for their fried chicken, so as a first-timer, on of the chicken plate meals would be preferred. Some come with just chicken and rice, other include Pancit (noodles) and Chop Suey. One on my gorlfriend's favorites is the fresh lumpia, as opposed to fried. A much healthier option not found at too many Filipino restaurants. I enjoy their all-day breakfast plates with garlic fried rice and your choice of meats- Tocino (sweet cured pork), tapa (marinated beef), longanisa sausage, or Bangus (marinated milkfish). All n all, this is my go to Filipino restaurant when dining with non-Filipino friends.
