Recently ate at Maxie's after having moved to another state 4 years ago. Food and atmosphere were as good as we remembered. We did think it was a little pricier than we recall.

Let me preface this with my bias... I'm from the South (Louisiana, to be exact). Calling this place "Southern Comfort Food" is a bit of a stretch, even for the most forgiving southerners. They serve very good "Southern Inspired" food, but the gumbo, jambalaya, and...More
