Great deli food and typically good service. Can be a little bit loud at times. Best coleslaw I've ever had. Was not impressed with the brisket but I think I spoiled myself on my own recipe at home.

Corned beef tasted funny and fries arrived cold and flavorless. My husband ordered mushroom barley sound which was good but his BBQ sandwich hardly had any meat on it

Best deli in the area. Combo sandwiches are great. Keep up the good work but get better sour pickles for the table.

We went as an extended family, say 12 people. This is the second time that we were there as a large group and it will be the last. We have been there as a couple for a sandwich with no problem.

Great deli to have lunch at! Their Corned Beef sandwiches are humongous though... enough for 2 servings. Does not come with fries, but they're large enough that you don't really need them. I went with my Dad for lunch, and we each got a sandwich and a side order of fries. Should have gone with one order of fries! Plenty... More

Earlier this month I was out with my family and we decided to try Max & Benny's for lunch. This is a spacious place in a strip mall right near the interstate. They have a full Kosher Jewish Deli and Bakery along with a breakfast/lunch/dinner restaurant. While we waited a few minutes for a table we perused the deli and... More

Thank you for trying us and I'm glad you had a great time. One correction, however, we are not Kosher, but Kosher style. More

Service was quick but we needed to wait average time for food. Service as was good and helped our friends to also sign up for anniversary dinner even though they were members already.

Corned Beef Sandwich, Chicken Matzo Ball Soup, and many ethnic dishes just like "grandma" used to make is what makes Max and Benny's an authentic delicious Deli. Besides sandwiches and pastries, a large menu provides a variety that will satisfy everyone in your party.
