Witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational burger station!”

That’s right, beef lovers — Max’s Burgers & Steaks is officially ready to serve you from the Avenue X and East 1st Street storefront. And it’s about time, too. This place, with its creepy sign featuring a plump toddler that we really don’t want to mentally associate with beef, first popped up in February and has been making our mouths water (for baby meat) since then.

Our tipster Paul Kundel notes that, while they didn’t have a menu in print, he “saw they were serving hot dogs, euro dogs (whatever that means), salads (Caesar), gyros, burgers, steaks etc.”

To show how giddy we are about the opening of an eatery dedicated to the comprehensive needs of the carnivore, here are some quotes about beef.


  1. Just curious, why is it when somebody writes a positive comment about a restaurant, suddenly they are “the owner’s friend” or “getting paid to post?” Maybe it’s actually a good place and the commenter is giving their honest assessment.

  2. Liked what? what dish did you try?
    Are you the owners”s friend? Or getting paid to post?

  3. tried a steak sandwich..overpriced and tasted like cardboard..never again. better steak at roll n roaster hands down

  4. 718-688-9070 this place is has some of the most amazing burgers ive tried in a while in this area deff 2 thumbs up

  5. Sheepshead Bites occasionally covers news out of Coney Island and Homecrest as they are so close to the area, going ons there are relevant to Biters.

  6. I tried this place and its pretty horrible. The burgers are very dry, the buns are stale. Wont be coming to this place again

  7. Ave X really needed a reasonably priced fast food joint. I hope this place is good.

  8. There has been an increased number of references to science fiction. This is nice.

    This neighborhood could use a good burger joint. Might go try it tonight.
