“Everything was spot on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I went to Max and Erma's to try one of their famous hamburgers, and they delivered. I ordered the Diablo Burger, cooked medium. It was cooked perfectly and the blue cheese coleslaw perfectly complemented the spicy mayonnaise. My girlfriend ordered a plain cheeseburger and it too was delicious. We ordered the soft pretzel sticks and they were excellent (the beer cheese sauce is an interesting and delicious combo of flavors). Finally, some cookies for dessert. I have to say I wasn't as impressed by the cookies as the rest of the meal, but the triple fudge are pretty fantastic. The interior was nice, kind of an artsy, bistro-like feel. And our waitress was superb. Prices weren't too bad, just don't expect to pay fast food prices because you're definitely on a whole different level than fast food.

“Great Burger and great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Was not in the mood for a burger, but the sign outside said they had the best burgers anywhere. About ten different kinds of specialty burgers. I ordered one with a THICK slice of fried and battered American Cheese. I ordered it medium rare and it was done perfectly. Burger was very tasty with an excellent beefy flavor. Very Juicy. My wife also ordered a burger and it was also done perfectly. Try the cookies for dessert. More flavor than any others I have ever had. A pleasant atmosphere and a very friendly waitress (Sarah) made it a great Lunch. price not bad either. Two burgers, an Iced Tea, a coke, and two cookies for about $30.00. We will be back!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Max and Erma's has great food. I think the prices are very reasonable, and the service is always great. Max and Erma's always seems to be very quick, and it is a great place to stop by for a quick lunch.

“Fun to dine outside!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Food was just great--nice woodsy bar area and tiffany lamp style/cozy factor going on inside. We ate outside on the second floor balcony area overlooking Pullman Square. What a pleasure to sit with a beer and food and people watch.
