it was our first time to try max's fried chicken in jersey city about a week ago. we purposely steered clear way from this place for a good while because of what we were told were horrendous wait times for a table. so what we did- we hied off to jersey city at 10:00 AM on a tuesday. it was easy to find parking. their doors opened at 11 AM, and we were the first customers. the space is clean and comfortable enough. though they only had 1 toilet stall for men and 1 for women. one could imagine how uncomfortable that would be during a crowded weekend. i also noticed that in the second floor where we were seated, each table basically had its own dedicated floor electric fan- probably due to the heat when the place is filled up. again- we didn't have a need for it as the entire second floor was just occupied by us. the food came fast enough. the crabmeat fried rice was a huge serving at $9.25. our server, noting that there were only two of us, did inform us beforehand of the huge rice servings. the fried chicken was authentic max's of manila. but the winner was the crispy pata. we also had pancit (a little too salty), tilapia filets (nothing earth-shaking), and the husband had a couple of red horse beers (quite expensive at about $4.75 each). overall- it was a pleasant experience and we burped to our hearts' content. we also visited nearby red ribbon for take-out desserts. great tuesday mid-morning meal, and we are certainly planning on doing it again!
