Gluten-free or 'regular', the Bad Ass Fried Chicken will have you licking your fingers.

Max's Wine Dive is a trendy place to dine on classy comfort food that is taken to new heights of flavor. Located in an old neighborhood that was re-gentrified into 'Uptown' in Dallas at the corner of McKinney and Lemmon Avenues, there is plenty of parking in a convenient (and free) covered garage just behind the restaurant. Their slogan is 'Fried Chicken and Champagne?... Why the hell not?!?'

Max's could also add another tag line too - 'Gluten-free choices?... Why the hell not?!?'

Max's has a large outdoor porch for dining, as well as a big bar and huge indoor dining area, too. On a recent Sunday afternoon, there wasn't an empty seat to be had. Reservations are recommended. Once you see the menu and taste your meal, you will understand why.

Besides a great assortment of brunch entrees ( eggs any style, 'Hangover Pot Pie', and Creme Brulee French Toast'), Max's also offers gluten-free plates with side dishes like jalepeno cheddar corn grits - which will change your life. The big star of the gluten-free menu has to be the 'Bad Ass Gluten Freindly Fried Chicken.' Crisp and not greasy outside, moist and flavorful inside, this chicken is the one entree to starve yourself for all week so that you can indulge in every last delicious bite. Take a look at their online menu ( and start salivating.

Max's Wine Dive (also in Atlanta, Chicago, and Denver, and around Texas in Austin, Ft. Worth, Houston, and San Antonio) when describing their establishment said, "Inspired by restaurants and wine bars we love, the Wine Dive provides a unique dining experience where you can pair hand-picked wines with your comfort food and jam out to rockin’ tunes on the jukebox."

Note: Max's will be participating in the 2014 Dallas/Ft. Worth Restaurant Week with a special 3-course dinner menu from August 11 - 24 (Yes, it is more than a week, so there is time to make dinner plans... Why the hell not?!?)
