Great food and good service! Unexpected surprise!.
I'll be honest... until a couple of weeks ago, I hadn't been to a Max and Erma's in nearly twenty years. I thought the restaurant was geared to seniors as it was one of my grandparents favorites forever ago. I was so surprised by my experience. The food was delicious. I tasted the hamburger and was initially jealous that I didn't order it... then I tried my soup (the tortilla soup) and salad (hula salad) and that jealousy disappeared! The soup was delicous (I tried not to think about my caloric intake) and the salad was fresh and a delicous blend of flavors and textures. The only negative for me was the minimal booth options (because we are booth-preferring people), but we sat in the bar and were very comfortable.
I can honestly say that Max & Ermas has the best cheeseburgers. Not to mention the service was great. You have to try the BBQ Cheeseburger, I know that it sounds weird, but it is so good!!
Castleton's Max & Irma's.
I've not been to the south-side M&I's, but the Castleton location is outstanding! Great food, great drinks (that's more the bartender, though) and the servers are very good. All in all, a very good place to eat one of the best burgers in town!
REAL man's burger.
The burgers at Max and Erma's are thick, juicy, meaty burgers fit for a man's appetite. Not just a burger for the men, but an Erma burger for the ladies! Excellent taste, quality, best burger in town!!
