Max's in Wheaton, HORRIBLE!!

Bob099 | Jul 15, 2004 10:01 PM

I just went to Max's in Wheaton after hearing numerous reccomendations on this board.

I walked in with a shwarma/gyro craving. They had a 1/2 ($4.95), a full ($6.95) and a shwarma platter (can't remember but more expensive.)

It was overpriced. I mean $4.95 for HALF a piece of pita bread and a little meat? Come on.

So I ask, what is included with the platter. (is it salad, sides, or what) and the guy can't speak English well enough to answer after 3 attempts and send me to the falafel counter where I proceed to ask. They can't answer the question either. Oh well. So I order a "full" shwarma. During all this, I neglected to add, that the staff at Max's was horribly rude and insensitive.

The sandwich itself is dripping with tablespoons of oil and the salad parts are not very tasty or fresh. The salads themselves don't look very fresh or very authentic. I've had significantly better, fresher and more intricately spiced sandwiches with double the meat at complete hole in the walls in NYC for $4.00.

I'd also have to say that the Lebanese Taverna in Rockville is a much better & tastier bet than this overrated and overpriced place that is better known as a local hangout for the local Jewish population than a good place for falafel or shwarma.
