Max's Wine Dive owes its unusual name to the combination of a terrific Texas “dive" menu with chili dogs cheese fries and mussels steamed in Lone Star beer alongside an innovative wine list that was light years ahead of the rest of the city when it was introduced. The company's mantra, “Fried Chicken and Champagne?...Why the Hell Not?!” pretty much sums up the place. The food selection consists of year-round favorites like “Famous Southern Fried Chicken” and “Shrimp & Grits,” as well as a changing seasonal menu that provides Max's regular patrons with great variety throughout the year. Don't know anything about wine? No problem, the staff here trains on a weekly basis, which gives them the knowledge to help both casual wine drinkers and more experienced imbibers make informed selections. Guests can even buy bottles to go at reasonable prices. Texas beers are on draft for those who want to change things up, or just refuse to do vino.
