We dine in Max’s Original simply because it is located next to Holiday Inn San Francisco Airport South, where we stayed for two nights. It is convenient as we were too tired to go out to find our dinner. It is only within 1 min walking distance from the hotel.
Once we entered, we were quite delighted at the setting of Max’ Original Restaurant. There are many photos back in the olden days hanging on the wall of the restaurants. I have a good walk around the restaurant and found out there are few different sitting arrangement including a bar area and some live entertainment.
Once seated, you will notice the restaurants also serve as a fun and casual atmosphere. As we were still very early when we arrived at the restaurant, around 6 pm there were not many guests as yet.
The signature of this restaurant is corned beef and pastrami as the owner Max (long dead) would love to order himself. When you open the menu, you will find lots of Jewish dishes.
On the of the table, there is a “Happy Hanukkah” special menu. Hanukkah is a special Jewish holiday which usually occurs during end of Nov and Dec of every year.
We ordered some chicken wings and lamb with quinoa. The complimentary bread served to us were hot and own made by Max’s. Really tasty and goes well with butter pickle mix.
Max’s Original is a nice dining experience for me as we don’t get to see such setting from where I come from. It also offer customers large portions of high-quality comfort food for reasonable prices.
Don’t forget to try their comfort food such as chocolate cake or other flavor as they have variety of cakes for you to choose from at the cake counter.
