Max's Take Out
In Max's Take Out—the oldest hot-dog stand in the area—spatulas perform acrobatics across a grill that sizzles happily beneath locally sourced, never-frozen beef patties and Chicago-style hot dogs. The warming aromas deliver dispatches to visiting nostrils and share the stories of cheery cooks and regulars, accumulated during the half century since the eatery's inception as a food cart. Laudations from the Vienna Beef Hall of Fame festoon the walls, and chicken basks in a marinade concocted from a recipe known only to the chefs and secret agents undercover as sesame seeds. In addition to traditional fare, Max's also offers a halal menu.
