Max’s has been in business for a long time. It is like going back in time. We loved our corn beef sandwiches and fries. Perfect location if you are staying near by.

We were famished by the time we checked in at the Holiday Inn Expeess South near San Francisco airport, so we walked next door to Max's for lunch. I wasn't expecting a Jewish deli wannabe anywhere in the vicinity. This is the kind of place...More
