Best Philly cheese steak I've had.. Been to a few others but by far Max's has been a cut above the rest. The line could be a little long but trust me it's worth the wait..

I was a hardcore fan. But there appears to have been a change of personnel and the quality has gone down. They put less meat on their sandwiches and the cooks are a lot slower and less organized. They have a policy of not writing down orders which means they screw up orders repeatedly. I am looking for a new cheesesteak spot because I have been sorely disappointed

Everyone talks about Geno's & Pat's all the time but the REAL Gem of philly steaks is at Max's. By far the best Hoagie's & Cheesesteaks in all of Philadelphia. Each time I visit from Las Vegas, Max's is a mandatory stop... Don't buy in to the HYPE of the other 2 joints.

Don't go. Don't even waste your time. They fell off completely. The hospitality is horrible and the wait isn't even worth it. There's a guy who cooks the food and a guy for prepared it for you. The guy that cooks the food takes out the trash as well. (Who knows if he wastes his hands when he returns.) The guy that prepares the food is a complete jerk. He feels like he has the power to say anything and make you feel like you need their food or something. His attitude makes you want to walk out without the food. Not to mention that I tried to order a bottle from the back of the bar and they didn't even know the price of their own product. This is the last time they will see me up in there. I will tell all my friends not to support this scary/hood/poor/unclean environment! I got a better sub from WAWA the next day!

yeah i ate from there in the past but...it's not clean nor safe & the owner & manager are crooked. the more you learn, the more you know. They have judges & lawyers in their pockets sending our black men to prison but yet our ppl buying their sandwiches. Google shootings at Eagle Bar. Cops been trying to shut that place down for years! Knowledge is power!

On march 5 2016 at 1150pm my wife wanted to go get a steak from Max's for the first time. So i went inside and notice it was crowded. There were at least 20 people in front of me. So i stood in line and waited. While i was in line i seen a few times people was coming out of know where and say something to the cooks or the cashier and next thing i know they are at the cash register cashing out and leaving with at steak. Meanwhile the line was going real slow. So as i was coming around the line to order my steak. The cook ask me what i wanted so i told him. He says my is number 4. Next thing i know i seen two guys come out of nowhere and told the cook i need seven steaks. So they stop fixing my order and the three people in front of me order. To get these guys there steaks. So they hold up our order for 15 minutes. To get these guys that came out of nowhere there food. It was at least 6 people who did that. So i started to get pissed i wanted to leave but i knew my wife was hungry and it was late. The time i cashed out it was 1250am. The lady that cash me out ask me how was the service. So i told her that it was bad business that yall let these people bussed in line like that and yall let that happen. She says im the wrong person to talk too. Then i told her about the last two guys that ordered the seven steaks. She going to say with a straight face that was her nephew's. Im looking at her thats the best answer you can give. Like that was right. Well im not coming there again.

Best cheese-steaks in Philly hands down. The customer service can do much better since it can be inconsistent from time to time. The area isn't the nicest either, so I expect they have to develop tough skin with some of the patrons, but being consistently nicer to customers is key for this place to be better than what it is today.

There's a reason why I avoided this place. I finally goes back here after a couple years. The little ole head that makes the steak meat talks over the food,takes out the trash, and I caught him digging in his ear. Then the other Bul that actually prepares your sandwich has a big attitude problem like people have to kiss his ass for some unflavored cheeeateaks. Couple of people in line including myself wanted steaks with wiz. He gonna say cheese wiz is for white people and slams the can of wiz with actually two white people in front of him. I wanted to put hands on Bul he came real close. And the owner wonders why he don't get the same business as pats and Geno's. People want a pleasant experience not some ghetto hood crap with ockee buls all over the place trying to sell you something. Will never come back plus they dirty anyhow.

A friend of mine from Philly recommend this place as the second best cheese steaks in Philly, considering her recommendation for number one was amazing, I figured I'd try it! Plus the place was featured in Creed, so two reasons to go! Once again, she was right, these are amazing cheese steaks and subs!

It has its own free parking lot, which is a big plus and inside dining in the bar attached bar. And having an attached bar, they sell beer.

The food was made fresh, as it took a while to come out. Based on the big chicken steak sign, we ordered one cheese steak and one chicken cheese steak, plus a ham sub for the kids.

Everything came out very hot and the subs were pulled high with meat! This was some flavorful steak, sirkoin per the sign behind the counter. It was nice and most without being too greasy. There chicken steak was also nice and most, and over packed with flavorful chicken. The kids could cut ham cub had some great tasting ham. I don't know what type they use, but it was so good that it almost overshadowed the chase steak sub;

Overall I will concur with my friend that this is the second best cheese steaks in Philly. I say second because there needed to be either a little bit cheese or better distributed in the sub to the amount of meat. It's not even that they skimped on cheese, they just stuffed it with meat! Next time I might eat some with a fork first to get the distribution better per bite.

But if you are birth if the city, this is the place to go!

The best, heartiest cheese steaks in Philadelphia. No place compares. Their pizza steak truly is worth the trip itself. Tough, but SAFE environment. Assert yourself, make your order and you'll be fine. Staff jokes around but are never disrespectful or out of line. And are VERY clean with cooking surface and utensils. Good place to visit the "other" Philadelphia.

Max's food is very good! My only complaint is that I had to wait well over an hour just to place my order, but I guess that's what happens because everybody seems to love this spot. I would definitely come visit again!

Came from SC to visit family and we went to Geno's. Their cheese streaks at Geno's have no flavor so my family from Philly was like no go to Max's they are the best. Man it was late at night and I got me a half cheese steak and I swear that was the best cheese steak I've had In my life. Even my entire family that came enjoyed it. Definitely is my spot from now on!!! Highly recommended

I went there a few times and my steak was good, but this last time , 🙄the staff was rude, the cooks were dirty , eating over the food, touching the raw steak , bringing supplies out the fridge, raw steak frying next to the pile of onions. He never change his gloves., 😐

The manager needs to get with the program. The slicer area was dirty. 😳They make good steaks , but the food handlers are the worst, no safe food ethics from any of the staff but the Muslim lady. They take the trash out without changing gloves. I was disappointed!!!!!😒

They need to tidy up on their cleanliness!!!!!!!!!!😒😐😒

The way they handle food is terrible!!!!🙄 and sad!!!!!

I was good this last time, didn't buy nothing. I was afraid of getting sick from poor hygienic habits.

Always great steaks. They make travel steaks for you if you want to take them on the plane. They put the steak on paper between the bread so it doesn't mess up your sandwich while you're traveling. Best steaks in philly

I came from DC to get a cheesesteak at 10am & they weren't open yet. A guy came outside stating he was the only one here & I asked if everyone else was late & he said we don't open til 11am. I told him that online it says 10am & he said "I know what online says". It doesn't take much to edit the online info. Customers were walking up from all directions. This is bad customer service to have people drive/walk to a place knowing that the online information is wrong. Service needs an upgrade.

I've been to several cheese steak places around Philly. This is by far my favorite. They season the meat perfectly and the rolls are so fresh. The neighborhood is extremely sketchy looking but I felt perfectly safe. People on the street say hello and are very friendly. This place is a neighborhood institution.

The cheesesteak was out of this world, but the line lasted over an hour. I guess I'm not taking away any stars because I knew right up front how long I'd be on that line, and I chose to wait. The one guy that got frustrated and hopped off the line when I first got on appeared an hour later because he changed his mind and absolutely needed to eat that steak, so I guess even the impatient follow the pied piper's call.

This is more like 10 stars, I'll tell you why. I'm prior service and and a vet. I decided to stop by here on Memorial Day to see what's the hype about and because it was featured in the Movie Creed with Sylvester Stallone. Trust me it's worth standing in line and waiting. The beef tastes better than the other two famous places here which are Genos and Pats. It's costs less, it's bigger, tastes better, and I'll never go to any other place again. I'll even drive the hour or so from Jersey just when I want a Philly Cheese steak. I wish I could meet the owner to personally thank them for being the best. You are truly number 1 after trying out the rest.

Btw try and go as a group the place can be a bit intimidating especially with the bar next door. Go in the day time

Probably the best sandwich I've ever had. No joke. The only reason I didn't rate it five stars is because of the wait. I stood in line for an hour forty-five minutes. I'm not exaggerating. I'm told that's typical for the weekend. but it's not nearly that long at other times. The "half"costs about $9 and is about a foot long. The whole is double that in size and almost in price. I heard some say they weren't going to get it with ketchup. GET IT WITH KETCHUP. I asked for whatever was most popular and it was fantastic. It starts with mayo, grilled onions, American cheese, then, after the meat (oooh, the meat!), they added ketchup, salt, sweet peppers, spicy peppers, and pickles. I think that's it.

When you visit Philly it's always a good idea to have cheesesteaks before leaving Philly. I would have loved to write a positive review however, we arrived here at 11:15. Although it states that the restaurant opens at 11:00 it was not opened yet. The workers were just arriving when we arrived so we waited until 11:30 at 11:30 we called before entering back in and they told us it would be another half hour before they opened. So we left. Not the way to do business if you call yourself a well established business. We headed to Jimmy G's instead and was not disappointed with the food and service.

I wish I could give this place more stars! The best cheese steak hands down I've ever had in my life the meat was fresh and so tender with the cheese melted in perfectly there was not one bite of gristle or nasty fat whatsoever the roll was buttery and toasted to perfection it was humongous!

It took me 3 days to eat a large. I ate half of a half at the restaurant and took the rest home with me to New York and was reheating it in my toaster oven and it was just as good .

There is a bar connected to the sub shop and the bartender was so nice we had the best time there.

The jukebox had great music and it was just an all around fun time they have a free parking lot in the back which makes life much easier it's almost worth a trip back down just to get another cheese steak! Yhey also have a seafood menu to die for !!!

I'm from NYC. I've never had an authentic Philly cheese steak before, so naturally, my girl and I head over to Pat's and Geno's cuz, you know, that's what you're supposed to do. Now, don't get me wrong, they were good, but I felt like there was something missing. Then our cab driver told us about Max's. Hands down, it's the clear winner. The price is right, the portions are huge, and it's connected to a lounge! It's kinda in a hood location, but that's what makes it better, in my opinion. If the locals like it, I love it.

Being from Philadelphia, but now residing in Baltimore, I was truly excited to have a chance to go back home for a youth convention and end the trip with a visit to Max’s Steaks.

When I was living there Max’s wasn’t around. I took my wife there and church family and they loved the steak. I’m sorry I did LR take a picture, but I was hungry, they were about to close and I had a half hour drive back to the hotel.

I got my steak and my wife got a chicken steak and she lived it just as I did. It was a enough for me to even take back home for the road. They give you enough steak for your buck. Thanks Max’s for marking my night.

Oh yea, even though there was a line and a wait, again, it was worth it because they are so popular.

On the recommendations of others, I made the trip on the Broad Street subway to this steak place/dive bar. There were only a few people ahead of me in line but it took a long time to get served. The sandwich itself - I got a half with mushroom, fried onions, whiz and hot peppers - was very good. Beware - do NOT get a whole for yourself unless you have some kind of herculean appetite because it's literally almost three feet long. A half is a foot long. Also, just a heads up, this place is in the deep hood so if you are not comfortable being in such an area, take note. Personally, it doesn't bother me. I'm just here for the food.

I love this place !.... BUT PEOPLE ARE LEAVING MAXS SHOULD BE CAREFUL!...This is one of the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia. I was in line for 2 hours and the usual wait is 45min.

I saw at least 12-20 people walk away and the same 30 people were in line for 2 hours. They waited on everyone in the bar and took all their orders while letting everyone else stand outside in line for their to go orders . There were people in front of me who were in line 90 min by the time I got there.

Sure the food is good but Max's is losing a lot of business. I'm sure they are making good money but because of bad line management they are probably losing about 25 percent or more potential profit just because they have 1 or 2 people making steaks.

While I was there at least 12-20 people walked away. I guess the place is making enough money so they don't care

It's almost like they are reaching their hand into a pot full of cash and spilling half of it on the ground.

There are a lot of people making steaks good steaks downtown and in the northeast. I will never come back to Max's on a weekend and many in line today said the same.

Heard about this place. The guy thinnks he has a handle on all the orders but out of 5 sandwiches he got one right. I asked him twice about my order and he brushed me off with "I got you". Well, he did not get anything.

Also, there are signs that say "No Tipping" but he makes a point of asking which is okay, whatever because they are busy. I did tip gladly. But I do expect my order to be correct if that is your brag.

Big meaty sandwich, but if it isn't what you wanted there is no point. Won't go back, too many other places with better sandwiches.

Kind of a long wait, but in line with some similar steak places. The meat isn't chopped enough for my liking, and it isn't left in slice form either (like Steve's would be), it's someplace in between. Made the meat seem very chewy to me. I've had better, I've also had a lot worse. Worth checking out if you're in the area, but it's like a lot of other neighborhood places that you probably wouldn't go out of your way for.

I wanted raw onions instead of the cooked onions I was given. Also, the meat was bit dry and tough for me to bit through. I will still support in other ways though.

Waited in line for over an hour, two people walked in the back asked for sandwiches, and they were served before the 25-30 people that had been standing in line already. Finally got our sandwiches and they were not hot, barely Luke warm, the meat was not chopped fully, and by not chopped fully I mean there were huge chunks of steak, that I didn't trust were cooked completely. The staff was friendly, but there was no sense of urgency with the 25-30 people staring them in the face. The line cook had informed us that he had been working for over 24 hours straight, which in my mind would effect the businesses performance and quality.. will not be returning, and will make sure my loved ones stay away.

Cheesesteak was on point. Flavor and lots of meat. Bread was soft and soaked in all the flavor. Line was long but worth the 25min wait. Next time I’m a get it with no ketchup. It really didn’t need it.

Authentic Philly Cheese Steak.... But I really don’t get it. Yes the sandwich was tasty. I just don’t understand the big deal about Philly Cheese Steak. It was fresh and cooked to order. Very friendly service. I was there after 7pm and was served very quickly. I heard it could be over an hour other times. Don’t let the neighborhood scare you,people were very nice and friendly. I would absolutely recommend... if you like cheese Steaks.

I don't want to upset anyone and I understand what kind of place this is. I love the steaks here but be prepared to wait about an hour if any line exists. A lot of the staff is friendly but this ain't Burger King so you won't have it your way. It is sorta like the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld but I still hit it up over some of the other places in Philly which operate similarly.

Great mushroom cheese steaks; so good😋 I can't ever finish mine because its sooo much! One thing for sure is that you won't be hungry after that much steak; their not stingy with the steak.😊I can't speak on anything else there because that's all I've ever eaten from this store.

I must say this steak shop is in the Top Five steak shops in The City. The steaks are husky and delicious, the cooks are entertaining and customer-friendly, good with the public never a problem. The lines will wrap around the corner at any given moment. Must-try, must-visit this place, and another key note: this place made cameo features in the A-Movie "Creed". Much Love Max's.

I haven't been to Max's in a long time; they were good back then. Now, they knocked my six off with their hoagies and cheese steaks. If you're coming to Max's bring your appetite, the sandwiches are meaty and large.

I took a ride up to Philly with my sister and she took me to Max's. I'm a Jim's South Street cheese steak kind of girl, but hey she was driving..lol. When you step into Max's be prepared, the line is LONG and you will be there for a while. The people working behind the counter keep you entertained and the wait was well worth it. I got a whole cheese steak and it was DELICIOUS! I am definitely making a return trip.

This is a no frills type of restaurant, but the best place to get a cheesesteak. Waited at least an hour to get delicious sandwiches. I would do it again because it is well worth it.

The food must be amazing. The line was long, and not moving so I didn't get to try it this time. I suppose that gives me a reason to come back. It was highly recommended as THE go-to spot for cheese steaks by a friend that used to live in that area.

Was in Philly for the weekend and had to stop by Max's. Steak subs are definitely good & the people are very cool. While standing in line some guy just walked up to me and gave me $20. Told me to pay it forward. Much respect Philly!

My wife and I came here yesterday from New York to get some steaks. I didn't think it was going to be that mind-blowing until I ate my first bite. Excellent customer service, friendly people, and the far better steaks than the ones we tried at Pat's and Geno's.

Recommended highly by a number of people as the best place for Philly cheese steak. We ordered a cheese steak with onions, peppers, provolone cheese which somebody said was a traditional cheese steak. I don't eat much beef but decided while visiting Philly I wanted to try what people said was the real deal. It didn't disappoint. Wish I had asked for extra sauce, cheese, peppers and onions. With all the meat you get the additional toppings would have made it even better. Eat in or take out. There's a wait but wasn't bad especially since people watching the action on the street while waiting is entertaining.

I asked around town where the best place to get a cheesesteak was I was told Max's by several people. The atmosphere is a little urban there were people constantly trying to sell you something. The line was wrapped around the building which I didn't mind it was a Saturday that's to be expected. When I was trying to place order the guy was Rude, obnoxious and belittling everyone that passed through. I'm not sure if he was having rough day because it was a sunny day in Philadelphia( no pun intended) and he didn't want to be there. This was the rudest customer service I ever received at a restaurant in my life. He had everyone on edge when placing order. The cashier wasn't any better she was on her phone half the time didn't greet patrons or anything just took cash. I would never go there again. Overall the food was good but not worth the hassle dealing with unfriendly workers.

The food is beyond amazing. I am from Ohio, and every time I go to Philly, this place is a must. The portions are huge, and super flavorful. The area is a little rough, but I love urban landscapes, and I felt no danger, at all. The workers were fast, and friendly, and the food was served, in a reasonable time. I usually come to Philly, on weekends, and there may be a 30 - 50 person line, on a Friday, so be aware. But, the food is so good, I will gladly wait, again, and again. They even have take home sandwiches, where they put the cooked meat, in foil, and put the bread, separate, along with your toppings. I was able to bring a few, home, for my friends who never had a real Philly. I love this place!

I wish I had a picture to show how good these cheese steaks were. Just so you know, this is one of those hood spots (urban atmosphere) that, in my opinion, has the best cheese steaks in Philadelphia. I been to Geno's, Pat's, and even Steve's prince of steak but Max's takes my vote.

Was recommended this by a friend for authentic and excellent Philadelphia cheese steak. I got the basic Philly cheese steak with onions and provolone. You have your choice of Swiss or provolone here. I got the sweet peppers topping.

You have to wait awhile as the steak is prepared right in front of you. Walk-in give your order and get your number and wait. Whole process took about 15 minutes. Well worth the wait!

Was up here on vacation from Atlanta and have found the best cheesesteak in the area. More than enough to feed two or more people for a full size sandwich that is 2 feet long and packed with tasty meat...

It is a little bit hard to find and parking can be a chore as well. Lots of traffic but make the effort and you will be rewarded.

This place does not disappoint. It is all that you hope it to be. First of all, the service is pretty good for being super busy.

Shout out to the staff--who made sure that we had everything that we needed without being overly present in our conversation. They were great!

5 stars because of the high quality of the steak. Unassuming place that excels at what they do - Philly Steaks. Have been told that the line can be long but our wait was less than 15 minutes. My only complaint - no steak sauce. Looking to go back when in Philly. Will bring my own steak sauce!

Max's Steaks! My mouth is watering as I write this review. If we get anywhere near Philadelphia we go to Max's for a Philly Cheese Steak. We've eaten at the "so called famous" Gino's & Pat's they DO NOT COMPARE to the quality of Max's period. Max's IS on the corner of a rundown part of town. But don't let that deter your visit. The people are just people trying to get a good cheese steak like you. You will be hooked once you try it. A couple tips #1 Its CASH only. #2 Get the foot long. Eat half and save the rest. You will want more later and won't have to drive back. Don't miss this experience if you go to Philly. Enjoy!

It was really good but not the best. Definitely hit the spot, portions are huge, a bonus. You get a variety of customization on it, really good. Line was long but I understand why, but I mean prepare for a 30 minute wait. Cash only, with an ATM option, but that's extra ATM fee

Loved the steak, wish the neighborhood was cleaner. Food was prepared in front of us staff was very friendly.

Loved listening to the stories of the restuarant's growth.

The sandwich is well worth the cost. The taste stood out from the others with it's soulful flavor.

I loved the food, but didn't appreciate the little old white owner wearing his stripey "going out Saturday night" shirt and adorned in gold jewelry placing "please no tipping" signs behind the all black staff workers who were doing an excellent job cooking, handling complex orders and keeping the atmosphere light and funny. Is he trying to break their spirits by telling customers they aren't deserving of tips? Are they offered benefits and 401k's?

Usually Max's is excellent but tonight my steak was burnt. I'm out of $18.00 as I live across town so I'm not taking it back but it was horrible, non edible. I tried to eat it but I couldn't bare the taste. I should have known not to except the steak that was cooked and then reheated. Whom ever. Is on the grill doesn't need to be. I'm so upset. Won't be ordering if that guy is on the grill. You can also tell he's new and out of place. Not African American, though that shouldn't matter but it does in this place.
