Max's Wine Dive

The place for elevated comfort food

With the motto “Fried Chicken and Champagne — Why The Hell Not?” Max’s Wine Dive announces upfront that at this restaurant (which Texas Monthly named as one of the Top 10 Places to Eat in Texas in 2008), the only culinary rules that apply are the ones you set. How about a nice shiraz to go with your Texas Haute Dog or a merlot to compliment your Max and Cheese (cavatappi pasta slathered in a sauce of Gruyere and black truffles)? Anything goes at this rowdy establishment (which keeps the kitchen open until 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday) with a jukebox that blares the latest indie rock. There’s an extensive list of reasonably priced wine, a wide range of beers including a Houston-brewed ale, and a dark-chocolate, ancho chile-flavored dessert appropriately called the “Big Ass Brownie.”  

When afflicted with a case of the Mondays, stop by and let a Riesling and the live music relieve your pain.
