This eatery is great!
You know it is hard to find fresh food that is not "fast food" or to find an alternative to food or salads that have been sitting on the cooler shelf for days at most airports. SFO is a great exception and Max's offers better fare than what you would expect for a small cafe airport operation.
Today I had a made-for-me salad with romaine, spinach, artichoke hearts, hard boiled egg, feta, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, green onions and fresh (hot) herb chicken with Caesar dressing. Delicious! An authentic sourdough roll accompanied the salad.
They also offer different salads, sandwiches, veggies and meats, and even breakfast items as well.
As an Airline Pilot I want to eat properly and Max's makes that easy for me! Comfortable seating close by.
