Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 24 car dealership in Brockton
names Maxie’s Delicatessen one of the best places for brunch in Stoughton.

Best Brunch         eggs benedict

Maxie's Delicatessen is one of Stoughton’s hidden gems. They go way old school, using recipes that dial back to the early 1900s, and make each specialty dish from scratch. Stop by between 6 am and 3 pm Monday through Saturday or from 7 am to 2 pm on Sundays to try one of their amazing omelets or the Maxie’s Eggs Benedict.

Subject: Thank You

My children and I have always enjoyed your Deli. We come for breakfast as many times as we can. Your Deli meats are the best and your knishes are mouth-watering. I would like to thank Steve for getting me a bowl of his delicious pea soup yesterday even though it was Sunday. Where else could you get this kind of service along with divine food! This is the best Deli we have ever went to and I have been to some in New York but Maxie's is number one in my book. I recommend this place to everyone I know that loves good deli and excellent service.

Thank You,

Stoughton deli offers a little slice of New York

My mother, God rest her New Yorker soul, would have loved Maxie’s Deli, a Jewish style deli in an unprepossessing strip mall on Route 27 in Stoughton.

But what’s not to love about a place that serves homemade matzo ball soup piping hot and a noodle kugel that’s cinnamony and light? All for prices that would have warmed my mother’s Depression-honed thrift.

Maxie’s opened in its current spot in the Cobbs Corner shopping mall in 1993. Open daily for breakfast and lunch, it attracts a steady stream of regulars of all ages. We went on a Saturday at noon, and our fellow diners included families with small children, middle-aged couples, and a fair number of the walker-assisted set.

Our friendly, if slightly harried, waitress quickly delivered coffee and enormous menus, with a vast array of omelet and pancake choices, as well as a long list of sandwiches. We focused on the traditional deli fare, starting with an order of potato latkes ($5.75), six small fried pancakes that were crispy and hot and satisfying.

A bowl of matzo ball soup ($5) arrived in two separate bowls — one filled with a chicken broth studded with carrots, celery, noodles, and pieces of chicken, the other filled with a fist-sized matzo ball that was dense, but light. Combined, they were the ultimate comfort food.

A grilled Reuben sandwich ($8.45) was overflowing with corned beef and had the requisite Russian dressing, sauerkraut, and gooey Swiss cheese soaking through the rye bread. We chose the homemade cole slaw, which was slightly sweet.

The Nova lox platter ($9.75) came on a fish-shaped glass serving dish, and a hefty helping of smoked salmon was accompanied by hard-boiled eggs, cucumbers, red onion, lettuce, and some pale tomato slices. The platter also included a bagel and cream cheese.

Portions were big enough that we packed away what we couldn’t eat for the next day’s lunch.

But we found room for noodle kugel ($3.35), a custardy noodle pudding-cake that was heavenly. Maxie’s brings in cheesecake and apple strudel from the Carnegie Deli in New York, and we couldn’t resist the cheesecake ($4.85), a massive slice of the classic dessert.

Maxie’s also has a deli takeout counter, where the offerings include chopped chicken liver, three kinds of knishes, and cucumber and tomato pickles.

Next Sunday, April 28, at 2 p.m., Maxie’s will hold a pickle-eating contest, with proceeds going to the burn center at Massachusetts General Hospital.

“The burn center is our cause,” said Maxie’s owner, Steve Robbins. “One of our employees was a survivor of the Station (nightclub) fire. He went through 115 surgeries and just had a hand transplant. He’s doing great.”

Maxie’s is a great place to go if you’re craving some real deli. Eat, eat, as my mother would say.

Maxie's Looking to Help Burn Victims with "Pickle Pandemonium" Eating Contest

The Stoughton deli is hosting a pickle eating contest on Sunday, April 28 to raise funds for the Sumner Redstone Burn Center at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The matzo balls have been traded for pickles, but the goal is still the same - raising money for a good cause. 

After two years of holding a successful "Matzo Ball Mania," Maxie’s Delicatessen in Stoughton will instead have a pickle eating contest, owner Steve Robbins said. 

Dubbed "Pickle Pandemonium," the pickle eating contest will take place Sunday, April 28 at 2 p.m. at Maxie's, 117 Sharon St. in Cobbs Corner (outside if the weather cooperates).

Like last year, all the proceeds are being donated to the Sumner Redstone Burn Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. Last year's event raised about $11,000 for the burn center.

Feeling like he was getting the same contestants for the matzo ball contest, Robbins wanted to change things up a bit, and possibly attract some younger participants.

"When you think of a deli, what do you think of? Pickles," Robbins said.
The contestants will be eating small garlic dill pickles from Regal Pickle Works in Worcester.  

They have a "nice crunch and beautiful taste," Robbins said. 

The object is to eat as many pounds of pickles as possible within the six-minute time limit. 

Pickles have to be eaten as is, with no toppings. Participants may eat either sitting or standing in their designated areas, and can drink water during the competition, but the use of utensils is not allowed.

If a Participant has a “Roman Incident” (throws up), he or she is automatically disqualified.

Jim Braude, WGBH and NECN talk show host, will be the emcee. 

While the contest itself provides the entertainment, for Robbins, and business partner Joyce Ann Silva, this event is about giving back to a worthy cause.

Massachusetts General Hospital has provided burn treatments to patients since 1821. The Massachusetts General Hospital Sumner M. Redstone Burn Center, dedicated in 1985, is one of the largest adult burn centers in the Northeast, treating hundreds of patients each year, according to a press release. 

It offers cutting-edge therapies for acute thermal injuries, as well as innovative reconstructive procedures, psychiatric services and an in-house makeup service.

One of Maxie's past employees, Joe Kinan, is a survivor of the February 2003 Station Nightclub Fire in Rhode Island, which killed 100 people. He was severely burned and injured, however, and has had more than 100 surgeries as a result. 

"I wanted to do a fundraiser with him in mind," Robbins said. "It's the 10th anniversary of the Station Fire; keep the awareness going."

Contestants will compete for the $500 first place prize. Second place gets $200. 

There will also be a silent auction with Red Sox tickets, golf, entertainment and more, for spectators. 

Current sponsors include: Boar’s Head, Accessible Transportation, Regal Crown Pickles, Rotary Club of Canton, Legal Seafood, and the Schlossberg & Solomon Memorial Chapel.

Alright, we get it. When it comes to delicatessens, Boston is not New York. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that some of our top delis do definitely give Carnegie Deli a run for its money in the category of tastiness.

Maxie’s is a place you’d hope to find in the city, but it’s unassumingly parked in a random suburban shopping plaza. From mouthwatering pastrami and corn beef, to fantastic knishes and matzo soup, they make all of their specialties from scratch using recipes that date back to the early 1900's.

The waitresses aren't afraid to voice their opinion on current events, or at an indecisive customer, but that's all part of the charm at Maxie's. A throwback in the most traditional sense, people with personality and many years in the business work hard behind the glass counter, in the kitchen and delivering the meals. The food is what you'd expect of such a hard-working place -- lean pastrami and corn beef, unbeatable knishes, matzo soup and potato latkes, and incredible omlettes.The feeling is reminiscent of the legendary. but defunct Jack and Marion's in Brookline, Mass., where it almost seemed like any race or creed was part of the family. The atmosphere is part of that homey feel at Maxie's, as it could be mistaken as a big, overly-lit basement. Atmosphere doesn't matter in a restaurant, however, when the food is great. from: http://www.visitingnewengland.com/cheapeats.html

With roots in Mattapan, Dorchester and Brookline, the deli is built on a reputation of great food, high-quality service and large portions... .http://stoughton.patch.com/listings/maxies-deli

New England Sinai's Person of the Year - Steve Robbins

Maxie's Delicatessen is a neighborhood institution where, just like the TV show "Cheers", everyone knows your name. While at the deli coffee reigns supreme and folks drop in at the start of the day, both places are warm and friendly where people of all walks of life enjoy relaxed conversation catching up on the latest news - from politics to home repair tips.

At Maxie's, the place where friends meet to eat, the spotlight focus is on owner Steve Robbins - the Mayor of the Deli who you can find every morning welcoming young and ld to sit, have a nosh and enjoy some local color. In Stoughton, Sharon and surrounding towns, almost everyone knows Steve, and all agree that he is one of the most generous, community minded guys you will ever meet.

He loves to "work the crowd," introducing his deli patron's to one another ... and he loves New England Sinai. Steve is an avid supporter of the business community, an honorary life member of the Sinai Men's Associates, a trustee of the Sinai Foundation, and member of the Stoughton Chamber of Commerce, which recognized his leadership and community commitment by naming him their 2008 Business Person of the Year.

A people person, Steve enjoys getting together with friends, going to the theater, and sampling restaurants - where he can relax and let others do the cooking! And most of all, he enjoys spending time with his son Jared - the apple of his eye.

On March 7th, the Sinai Men's Associates are recognizing Steve as their 2010 Person of the Year. The event features a sumptuous brunch at the Lafayette House in Foxboro where once again, someone other than Steve can worry about what's doing in the kitchen. The brunch begins at 1 pm and all are welcome. The cost is $45, and to make a reservation, please call ext. 1328.


Old Style Jewish Delicatessens for non-Jews.
The Bottom Line This cuisine is not so much about taste and smell as it is about memories and good times years ago.

There are only two places in the world where you could get real Jewish delicatessen--New York and Boston. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Boston 'cuz I hate the Yankees. Boston and New York style delis have much in common, i.e., counter help with sarcastic mouths, REAL half-sour pickles and pastrami.... The only place in the entire South Shore area now that even faintly resembles those places is a restaurant in Cobb Corner in Stoughton called Maxie's. click to read full article

Thank you for having our group of 15 from State Street Corp. in Westwood in today for lunch. Everything was delicious - from the latkes, knishes, and matzo ball soup we had for starters to the various pastrami, tongue, whitefish, stuffed cabbage, and various other sandwiches we ordered.

Great Place: Maxie's is a favorite for us for breakfasts on the weekends. There lunch is quite tasty, too. The prices are right and the portions are
huge. Banana pancakes, my fav! Most of the waitresses have been there for awhile, we've watched them come and go. Watched many of them go off to college and grow-up. They're like family!


by Jonny99
Love this place because they save me a trip into Brookline to find good deli. Really deserves 4-1/2 stars because the atmosphere is basement-like and on occasion you'll find something that's not great. Overall, though, it's very good.

Maxie's is the tri-town (Stoughton, Canton & Sharon) area deli. Loyal patrons dine here almost everyday, because the food is worth it. There is not a better sandwich money can buy for lunch. "Lean" corn beef that melts on your tongue, piled 3" high. Whatever you want, Steve will make it for you and deliver it to your table with a smile. Take-out is equally as popular and good, always with sides included. Ruebens w/kraut are fabulous. Breakfast has its regulars, too. Lox, eggs, bagels, etc., it's all here and made to order, served up hot.

Dinner is now being offered due to popular request. Where on earth can you get a complete "lean" brisket dinner for $10.95 which includes homemade soup or salad , fresh veg. potato and a heaping pile of brisket, followed with a choice of homemade bread pudding w/whipped crème or warmed, grapenut pudding. In the mood for cheesecake? That's available, too! I got the plain cheesecake with blueberries and whipped crème on the side to share with my husband. Delicious! Friday night is dinner night. Stuffed chicken breast, homemade meatloaf, brisket, it's all the same price, with weekly specials added in. There isn't a friendlier, casual place to dine in the area. Eat like a king and queen at Maxie's with personalized service putting most other places to shame.
See for yourself

Pros: Consistently outstanding deli-style dining, lot's of homemade specialties & the nicest family around.

Cons: None that I can think of. Prime time can get very crowded, especially lunch, so plan ahead.

If you want a throw back to old deli's than Maxie's is a must (we are there at least twice a week). The food is fresh and there is so much to eat you can have another meal. The best corned beef brisket, cabbage soup, and blinzes that melt in your mouth. Good service. Great Breakfasts.

Jewish soul food like your mom should have made

GREAT chopped liver, and their scrambled eggs and whatever-you-want-mixed-in is a real battery-charger!

Pros: Friendly servers, Great food, OK parking
