My SO and I got to check out Max Burger in West Hartford Center yesterday. It was a beautiful day and early enough to not have to wait for a table (3pm on a Sunday). Let me just say...I LOVED MY MEAL!
First off...it's not cheap so if that's what you're looking for in a burgery meal nearby you could do cheaper maybe at The Counter Burger in nearby Blue Back Square. But, Max's is Max's and nothing is "cheap" at their places. With that said...let me gush about my meal. I'm not a huge ground beef girl so I was slightly cautious when navigating the menu at a place that's meant for burgers. There were so many non-burger options though that I felt safe ordering something else. I had the Pulled Pork Sandwich and it was AWESOME. It comes with two (yes 2) buttered and grilled hamburger buns, a large bowl of pork topped with slices of red onions, a lil stack of pickles (couldn't tell what kind but they were good) and some yummy cole slaw. Hence, you build your sandwiches. I'm pretty tiny and I made and ate both of them and still had plenty of pork to fork up and eat out of the bow. It was wicked good.
I also tried the "Fatty Melt" which is what my SO had. That's the burger sammiched between two grilled cheese sammies. My goodness...it was big but the meat was good and juicy. She could only eat half of it and I was swatting her hand away from my pork. Ha ha!
So, two orders of food, two sodas...and it was $30 not including tip. Pricey but you know you're going to eat good food.
Check it out.
