Max's used to be a favorite. Their chicken and pork dishes as well as desserts used to be enough reason to go back again and again. But the last visit was a bit blah. Chicken not as nice as it used to be and even the service was quite slow. And to think there were only a few patrons in... More

This restaurant has been by far the best chicken that I have personally tasted. And the place is very convenient for families or of any group. Meals are delicious, a bit pricy, but delicious.

I had dinner here with family. I like Max's before but the standard has deteriorated over the years. It was not so tasty as its used to be. I didn't finish my meal. I went on to have halo halo instead

Delicious and reasonable prices to eat Filipino cuisine. This restaurant serves good adobo but it is not available anymore. It is clean, spacious for a group of people to dine here. But the chicken is sometimes dry and overcooked.

Max's is synonymous to fried chicken..before the heavy competition among chicken-unlimited rice food chain.Max's is the byword of the juicest and tenderest chicken in the Philippines..I think Iloilo can claim that they have the 1st mall-based Max's restored in Western Visayas..they have lots of menu to enjoy.
