Had amazing comfort food here with family and want to go back very soon! Everything was dynamite from the fried chicken and waffles to the peach butter and collard greens. It's very small and sometimes hard to get a seat. Connected to the back of a convenience store.

You must eat the chicken and waffles! Absolute perfection! I had the blueberry waffle with chicken wings and it was fabulous! Full of flavor and love! The sides were great as well! THE CREAM CORN IS A MUST! The collards were good but I wasn't too crazy about the man cheese. I can forget about the awesome service! Very sweet... More

This was our first time to Marines. The service was very attention and helpful. They had lots of choices on the menu. The sweet tea was the best. We left full and happy, great way to start the day. Can not wait to go back

Chicken and Waffles great at $11. Chicken tenders were big, moist but not greasy, and nicely seasoned. Waffles were delicious. Our waitress started out great, but sat down to eat just when we were ready to leave. Respect your customer, you'll get better tips.

Absolutely delicious chicken and waffles. Friendly service and all, but I would come every day for the chicken.

We went to Maxine's specifically for the pan-fried chicken dinner. We were greeted at the door with friendly faces and things just got better from there. Kamilah was our server and she took great care of us! At our request, she brought us complimentary fresh cornbread muffins and peach butter to enjoy while waiting on our pan-fried chicken. (They tell... More

I used to visit Maxine's Chicken & Waffles for lunch and would normally put up with slow service from time to time. Last week was my last visit here. A friend and I visited for lunch arriving at 11:30am. The room was nearly full and they only had two servers working. While I was willing to wait a bit, I... More

I ate here with a senior group for lunch & got to sample their cornbread muffins with peach butter. Liked it so well I bought an order to bring home. I had one of their waffle sandwiches with scrambled egg, cheese, & turkey sausage. It was good & I'd order again. Came with home fries (chopped potatoes cooked mushy style).... More

Nothing fancy about the atmosphere, but the food is out of this world. Best chicken I've ever had, hands down.
