Having opened way back in 1979, Max's is definitely old school, just like us. We've got golden memories of watching some of Phoenix's biggest ballgames from within the darkened confines of this West Valley sports institution. (Like when our voice went hoarse cheering on Sir Charles and the Phoenix Suns as they beat the dreaded Chicago Bulls in triple overtime during game three of the 1993 NBA Finals.) Sure, a host of bigger and flashier jock joints, like McDuffy's and Marc's Sports Grill, have sprung up nearby over the past three decades. We consider Max's the antithesis of those jacked-up, high-adrenaline establishments. At Max's, you can stay abreast of the latest sports action on almost 100 TVs, check out the collection of more than 250 football helmets on display, or head over to the off-track betting area to make a wager. It beats having some tatted-up, Ed Hardy-clad bro yelling in your ear while the game's on.

I absolutely agree with the customers commentary. Michelob is a domestically produced beer and should be priced at HH prices along with other domestic drafts.

I have recently taken over as GM of Max's and will see that this oversight is addressed.

I went to Max's and I asked if they were having any specials. The waitress advised all domestic drafts were $1.50. I ordered Michelob Amberbock. When I got the check, I was charged full price. I argued that Michelob is domestic but the waitress, the bartender and the manager made it clear that in their world Amberbock is a dark beer which automatically excludes it from the list of domestic drafts. I couldn't even watch the game because they kept coming to argue with me. I finally left. Beware of deceptive specials at Max's!
