Located nearby the SAIC campus, Max's Take Out is a hole in the wall that packs a punch. The burgers (a made-to-order cheeseburger, fries and a drink) will set you back less than $5, though hot dogs and Italian beef give the burgers a run for their money in terms of popularity. Early morning diners can expect tasty French toast, egg combos and killer coffee for just a couple of bucks. Though most diners grab-and-go, a dozen stools provide the perfect perch for enjoying your meal off your feet.
