WARNING: the Habanero wings are extremely hot. I tried to eat eight of them, but wimped out with only a half a wing left. Regardless of the sauce chosen, it is applied halfway into the cooking process, allowing it to blend in with the seasoning which in turn produces a very nice product. Compared to other places in Downtown Memphis (including Kooky Canuck) that have better equipped kitchens, Max's hot wings are among the best in the area.
The only alcohol served at Max's is beer, but many patrons go BYOB with wine and liquor without having to pay a corking fee. Among the beer choices, my favorite is Pabst Blue Ribbon because at $2.50 a glass, it is a bargain.
(Recently, Max's got its liquor license. It is now a full-service bar, which is something to drink to.)
Overall, Max's Sports Bar is a great place to hang out and meet people while watching sporting events. The food, other than the wings, is "OK," but Max's is more about having a good time than anything else, which this bar is perfectly suited for.
