Maxine's has made its way into the mouths, and subsequently, the hearts of a great many Hoosiers. Over the nine years since opening, Maxine's has been mastering the art of one of soul food's staple ingredients, fried chicken. Following with a tradition popularized in 1930s Harlem, waffles have been paired with the chicken to make a mouth-watering and belly-filling combo. While this is the eponymous dish at this food spot, there are plenty of other options such as the perfectly fried catfish, the classic fried green tomatoes, or a twist on a southern staple fish and grits. No matter what you order, the will be “a taste of love in every bite.”
