I haven't been to a lot of delis so I can't compare Max's to any other deli. My husband and I enjoyed our meals here and he's vegetarian! We had enough food to bring home leftovers. The cabbage soup and noodle kugel were like nostalgic...More

Max's Deli and Restaurant in Highland Park has a reputation for serving the best bagels and corned beef in the area. I'm not going to argue the point. Bagels with cream cheese isn't my thing. I'm not an expert on corned beef, either, but Max's...More

I grew up going to the famous Canter's deli in LA with my grandfather. Ever since, every deli is compared to it. Sorry but Max's just doesn't meet the mark. I do love their cabbage soup. It is the perfect sweet and sour combo. The...More

Solid north shore deli. It's where breakfast business meetings happen in the area, and the very elderly get their morning coffee. They do all the basics well; I always get the corned beef on rye. The website is one of the weirdest I've seen. Today's...More

Max's is a reasonable deli. It is not a Chicago version of Katz's (there is no Chicago version of Katz's) so the pastrami or the corned beef is not "to die for". Nonetheless, the corned beef on rye ain't bad, and the pastrami, though not...More

Quality meals and efficient service describe Max's. Their nova lox and bagels are wonderful as expected. Surprisingly, their pancakes and tuna sandwich were yummy too. The restaurant is very busy and noisy which makes conversation difficult. Nevertheless, we will return.

I love their pickles. They bring it to your table soon after seating you. They also have the best Rueben sandwich. They are not skimpy with the corn beef. I can never eat the whole sandwich. Stop at the deli and bring home some bagels.
