A few months back my husband and I (new to Bastrop at that time) gave Maxine's a try...we weren't impressed and sort of forgot about it. So today, needing some lunch and in the mood to give it a second try, we went to Maxines.\r
Let me tell you, it just isn't anything it claims to be... I had the Monday special, Pot Roast, I ordered mine with green beans and mac n' cheese. Nothing could have tasted further from home made. The roast was bland, I mean really bland. No flavor at all, just real wet...kinda gross actually. The green beans were the real-thin type, straight from a can, and again (the theme of the entire meal) no flavor. The mac n' cheese is exactly what you get from KFC, I mean exactly like KFCs to the point where you would not be able to tell the difference...just awful to be marketed as a home-made meal Mecca...it's a real shame.\r
My husband had the chicken salad sandwich, and truly couldn't even eat it...it was that bad.\r
We really aren't picky eaters, we love to support the local joints whenever we can...but, Maxine's is a total sham...a waste of time and money. Just because you serve tea in a mason jar, you still need to make some great-tasting food...\r
We would never ever waste another moment or dollar at Maxine's.
