Max's in Glendale is that type of establishment where the "locals" go for real authentic food. From the outside, the restaurant resembles a log cabin that should be in the middle of a forest and not across the street from the Glendale Galleria. The inside is full of Filipinos satisfying a craving for familiar food. I went with a friend who is no stranger to Max's; she has, on occasion, gone to the restaurant with her cousins in the morning for breakfast in their pajamas. You could say she is a regular at Max's!

The food was as authentic as if I were in the Philippines. Quick service and friendly people. I could people in the booth behind us speaking Tagalog with generations of family members stretching from little kids to their grandparents.
