I am saddened to write that as of Sep. 26, 2014, Colfax Max has closed down. The owners are moving out of state--no doubt due to this state's anti-business climate (but that is MY personal opinion based on recent legislation by this state's assembly and...More

Terrible. Employees complaining about working; burger was RAW...; owner (I think) was very abusive to a woman employee (his wife?) and to his young son. He actually flaunted his abuse of the boy as if he was proud and expecting the customers to back him...More

First of all, the food was outstanding. Great quality specialty burgers. The nice husband-and-wife owners were working very very hard and seem like a fine tuned machine working together. The man asked us several questions trying to clarify the way we wanted our bunless hamburgers....More

Best hamburgers at the oldest diner in town. It's where the locals go when they want a great burger. Jason, the owner knows just about everybody and is on the city council. Great, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Free WiFi. Lousy location - but worth finding.
