Clayton >Max's Bar & Grill
Biggest and Best Burger. Max's gets my vote for best burger around town. Why? Its hand pounded into 9+ ounces of burger beef. When others brag about 1/2 pounders, why not get the biggest. They will also cook it to your request, not necessarily available at other establishments. Slug down a beer of your choice, domestic or foreign, together with ample serving of fries and you been well fed.
Friendly service and patrons, and loads of classic memorabilia make this suburban sports bar a low-key diversion..
With everything from '82 Cardinals paraphernalia to Marshall Faulk's jersey on display, Max's is a home-team sports bar, with TVs situated around the circle bar, always showing the important St. Louis games. A mostly 30- to 40-something crowd, many on first-name basis with the friendly staff, gives Max's a Midwest "Cheers"-like atmosphere. Being cool and trendy isn't necessary here--feeling welcome is easy.
Sure, it's St. Louis, but skip the usual Anheuser Busch and try a Boulevard Hefeweizen, a Midwestern brew gaining citywide popularity. The surprisingly extensive menu includes scallop chowder, a creamy and smooth alternative for those who find clams too chewy or fishy. An unbelievably crunchy batter makes the chicken fingers a prime starter, too. But the Chinese chicken salad, served with a bland dressing and wilted lettuce, is disappointing. The three-cheese pizza is also average, highlighted only by the tangy kicker of little onions sprinkled in the sauce.
