Husband, baby and I stopped during a trip north. Friendly wait staff, yes young, but attentive. Husband had brisket which he said was dry. I had the pulled pork which was good. The Mac and cheese was flavorless. I would say a safe bet for a burger lunch but not running back.

We love dining at this restaurant. The smoked barbecue dishes are always scrumptious and the servers are always attentive.
We dined on the pulled port, ribs and chicken which we and our guests enjoyed with the great choice of sides.
We will return!!

Long wait for the food. Had to contact owner where food was. Food was sitting under heat lamps. Don't know how long. Food was moderately warm. Service was terrible. Food was average for spare ribs. Did enjoy the Hanger Steak. Do not see myself going back or recommending this place to others.

We have tried many BBQ places and always return to Max's. Dan, the manager is engaging and super helpful. Love the BYOB, if you like, policy. They do have a full bar.

We travel 1/2hour to Max's Memphis BBQ for their always delicious food! Especially come for the cheesy grits. My entire family has their own special choices and all of them are great. It's a relaxed, clean and friendly place at a reasonable price.

The food here is absolutely delicous. We are from NYC and whenever we travel upstate we make it a point to eat at Max's Memphis BBQ. We LOVE it!!! The food is unbelievable and the portions are generous. We recently ate dinner there for my husband's birthday and as always, we enjoyed every bite. It's an absolute MUST if you're ever in the area.

We rush from the city to get there before it closes. The staff is young, friendly and eager to make things right. The brisket is my favorite. Sometimes I have a meal and sometimes a sandwich. The special look good, but I look forward to the brisket.

My wife and I ordered the Smoked Beef Brisket - no smoke ring, meat was gray in color, no BBQ seasoning or rub if you will - tasted like Yankee Pot Roast - very disappointed - neither of us ate much if it- sides were good - but not good enough to go back again - sorry

I took my wife to Max's for Mothers Day dinner along with my son and his wife and 2 children. We were very disappointed! My wife ordered St.Louis Ribs and they were very dry. The Garlic Mashed Potatoes were very watery. Our desserts were lousy also, My Pecan Pie was obviously stale and my wife's blueberry dessert had tasteless crumbs on it. The sole exception was the whipped cream, which was delicious. This was our first time at Max's and we were expecting a lot more.

Food as usual was very good service on the other hand was terrible. I ordered a beer wife ordered wine. Waitress brought me the beer and no glass, wife's wine glass only had small amount in bottom of glass. We had to ask for the bread and as there were three of us they only brought three pieces not the basket they usually serve. Some of the side dishes were missing and we had to beckon to the waitress in order to get service.

I've been to Max's many times over the years, and the service often seems rushed because they are so busy, but I have to say that we received the worst service we ever have this time.
I had made reservations for 645 pm and we got there at 643. The hostess said that there would be a twenty minute wait. I asked her what the point of having reservations is if we were going to have to wait and she responded that they had booked too many reservations too close to each other. A manager (?) came over and offered us a high top table in the bar area, which we took. We were seated and the waitress came over to take our drink order, asking if there was anything else that we needed. Our response? Menus. She brought them over and we eventually ordered and received our drinks but then we had to ask for corn bread which we normally receive automatically. The food was the best than it ever has been but I am questioning going back because of the problem with the reservation and the feeling that we were an afterthought.
