Comfort food can transport the stomach to a time when meals were always home-cooked, ingredients were always from the garden, and beverage sips had to travel uphill both ways. Put down-home flavors on the straight and narrow with this Groupon.

$15 for $30 Worth of Gourmet Comfort Fare

MAX's Wine Dive

The culinary ideology behind MAX's Wine Dive lies in a simple slogan: "Why the hell not?" With the gourmand irreverence to unite fried chicken with champagne, chili dogs with an Australian shiraz, and grilled cheese with a French sauvignon blanc, chef James Moore's menu of eclectic and upscale comfort food has earned MAX's San Antonio location several OpenTable Diner Choice awards, including Notable Wine List and Hot Spot.

Though the cuisine evokes the flavors of a rustic diner, the ingredients are all gourmet—chefs spangle dishes with fresh seasonal produce, piquant cheeses, and unique sauces such as chipotle aioli and wasabi crème fraiche. Meanwhile, an extensive inventory of world wines pours freely from a temperature- and humidity-controlled Enomatic wine dispenser, sending selections to tables by the glass even when the menu lists a varietal as bottle-only, thanks to the restaurant's two-glass commitment policy. On Sundays, brunch bravely blends fried chicken and pancakes, available in traditional or red velvet, and the signature MAX 'n cheese puts a twist on an original in a more critic-friendly manner than editing a high-speed chase into Casablanca.

Though the cuisine evokes the flavors of a rustic diner, the ingredients are all gourmet—chefs spangle dishes with fresh seasonal produce, piquant cheeses, and unique sauces such as chipotle aioli and smoked jalapeño honey crème fraiche. Meanwhile, an extensive inventory of world wines pours regularly, sending selections to tables by the glass even when the menu lists a varietal as bottle-only, thanks to the restaurant's two-glass commitment policy. On weekends, brunch includes eclectic dishes such as pulled pork hash topped with a red chili hollandaise sauce along with their famous southern fried chicken, and the signature MAX 'n cheese puts a twist on an original in a more critic-friendly manner than editing a high-speed chase into Casablanca. MAX's Wine Dive can also comfortably accommodate large gatherings in their semi-private dining area.
