“Good Hot Dog and fries”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Just as good as Portillo's but without the atmosphere. It's a whole in the wall near the Palmer House. Their fries were a pleasant surprise as well.

“Great dog and fries!!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

This place is not much to look at but the hod dog I had today was delicious. Who knew that onions, peppers, green relish, mustard, a dill pickle spear, celery salt, tomotoes, and a beef hot dog could taste so good. The fries were great too. If you're in the neighborhood definitely grad a dog at this place. You won't be sorry you did.

“Max's Hits the Spot”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Max's is small with bar stool seating along a wall shelf, very Chicago. Friendly, fast service gets you the best hot dog, fries, soft drink combo on the Loop for a very reasonable cost. Max's is worth a visit again and again and again.

“Fast service and good food.”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

I stop there as I am transferring buses. The service is always fast and accurate. The prices are a little high but it is in downtown Chicago.

“Best hot dog in the Loop”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Max's consistently serves the best value combination hot dog, fries and drink in the Loop. In fact, Max's fries alone are the best in the Loop.
