“The story of Max's Restaurant began in the Philippines with the owner (Maximo Gimenez) befriending American occupation troops after World War II over food and drinks,” explained Cathy Ferrer, Max’s Manager. “Hosting Military Appreciation Day is an opportunity to celebrate our troops for all they do and pay homage to the back story of our business success.”
Max’s Restaurant is legendary for its delicious fried chicken, crispy yet tender and juicy. The story of Max Restaurant can be traced to the culturally-rich country, Philippines. After World War II, Maximo Gimenez, a Stanford-educated teacher, befriended American occupation troops stationed in Quezon City, Philippines.
A few would come to his house for a drink or two. Eventually they insisted that they pay for their drinks. It was then that Maximo decided to open a café that served chicken, steak, and drinks.
Over the years, Max’s Restaurant’s popularity grew and became known as “the house that fried chicken built.” Today, Max’s Restaurant has expanded with over 150 branches in the Philippines, Middle East, U.S.A. and Canada.
In addition to the famous Max’s Chicken, Max’s Restaurant offers traditonal Filipino favorites such as Pancit (noodles), Lumpia (egg rolls), Adobo and Halo Halo.
