I try to sample chicken and waffles wherever I go across the country. Maxine's stands out not only for good food but very good service. We had the cornbread with peach butter as our appetizer. Sort of like small corn meal "pancakes". Good. The chicken was moist and the deep fried batter was crunchy. Just like it's supposed to be.... More

My wife and I recently visited here while in Indy for a short getaway. We both love chicken and waffles so we had to check it out. The location is right on the edge of downtown and easy to get to. The staff were friendly and on top of things. We both ordered chicken and waffles and they were amazing.... More

Had amazing comfort food here with family and want to go back very soon! Everything was dynamite from the fried chicken and waffles to the peach butter and collard greens. It's very small and sometimes hard to get a seat. Connected to the back of a convenience store.

You must eat the chicken and waffles! Absolute perfection! I had the blueberry waffle with chicken wings and it was fabulous! Full of flavor and love! The sides were great as well! THE CREAM CORN IS A MUST! The collards were good but I wasn't too crazy about the man cheese. I can forget about the awesome service! Very sweet... More

This was our first time to Marines. The service was very attention and helpful. They had lots of choices on the menu. The sweet tea was the best. We left full and happy, great way to start the day. Can not wait to go back

Chicken and Waffles great at $11. Chicken tenders were big, moist but not greasy, and nicely seasoned. Waffles were delicious. Our waitress started out great, but sat down to eat just when we were ready to leave. Respect your customer, you'll get better tips.

We went to Maxine's specifically for the pan-fried chicken dinner. We were greeted at the door with friendly faces and things just got better from there. Kamilah was our server and she took great care of us! At our request, she brought us complimentary fresh cornbread muffins and peach butter to enjoy while waiting on our pan-fried chicken.
