Great Wines and Comfort Food all the Time
MAX’S first opened in Houston approximately 7-8 years ago. They are also located in Dallas, Denver, and Atlanta. MAX’S is known for its fine wines, comfort food, and overall fun dining. MAX’S is known for their Fried Chicken and Champagne, and their saying is, “Why the Hell Not”. This dish is comfort food combined with elegance all wrapped into one.
This place has the best appetizers and they keep you coming back for more! The Blue Cheese Bacon Balls are to die for, and they are a fried food lovers dream, and with the added bacon, you’re in hog heaven!
The Salmon Ceviche is for the more health conscious food lover or someone who wants something on the lighter side. It is served cool and the salmon was so fresh I felt like I was eating it right out of the Atlantic. It was combined with avocado and boy do I love avocado, and there is no skimping on the avocado! This dish is best served with the “Cake bread” wine, and I bought a bottle to take home.
The Local Greens is a meal all in itself; it is a salad with watermelon, strawberries, and walnuts. This is the ultimate health food with a sweet and sour flavor. The spicy balsamic gives it the sour kick without overpowering the sweetness. Absolutely refreshing and I forgot how healthy it was.
The Pork Tenderloin was delectable, and moist beyond comprehension. It was served medium, and I learned that lean pork tenderloin should be served medium (much like beef), to keep it juicy and not overcook, which makes it tough.
The Cracklin’ Chicken & Summer Succotash is one of the most creative and original dishes I’ve had, it is like having dinner with my Grandparents, one of those down home meals my Grandma used to make. This dish is the ultimate comfort food all rolled into one, it has butter beans, roasted chicken, and summer succotash (a squash) in one neat dish. It also heats up very well for later.
