Max's is right next door to a really nice Colorado rest area just off I-25. This local restaurant was busy at lunch with good reason. We had a club sandwich (one of the best ever), cheeseburger (handmade patty), grilled cheese (tons of cheese) and a turkey sandwich. All of these plus the fries were delicious! Max's also has homemade pies, muffins and cinnamon rolls. Their soft serve ice cream cones at $2 each are a steal. The ice cream swirled on top is more than twice the height of the cone. Plan to share. Service was small town friendly. The place was clean. It was a little warm with no A/C. Portions were generous and prices were very reasonable.

This is a small town restaurant. Staff was very pleasant and placed was packed. We had lunch there for 6.50 including tea and dessert. Lunch had 11 different options. I had a burger which was awesome. CASH Only.....but they have an ATM machine. Also the restrooms were very clean as was the kitchen.

This is one of those unexpected delights. It is not a very big place and just off I-25 in Colorado City but it is well worth the stop. Great food and fairly large menu. Breakfast and lunch are great and the service is too. The variety of desserts isn't too shabby either if you want to indulge. Really enjoyed it. May be a little harder to get into but worth it.

I had heard about this restaurant from my parents and we decided to try it. Iam certainly glad we did. They have a great menu. The breakfast was excellent. We had the Max's special, 2 eggs, hash browns, your choice of 3 slices of bacon or ham or sausage, and all you can eat pancakes for 7.25. When they brought the food I was so surprised at the amount of food they set in front of us. The food was delicious. If you are traveling up or down I25 south of pueblo make sure to stop by. One thing to note, They do not take credit cards. There is a cute little gift shop next door in another building, they have some nice local items in this shop to take a look at it.
