Reviews for Max's Liquors

I bought milk with an pull date 4 days away. When I used it the next morning it turns out the milk was sour. When I went to return the milk the same morning, they clerk refused to issue a refund saying that it was not their fault it was bad. When I pointed out that it should not have gone bad, he went on to say that they can't open every carton to check before selling it, so it was our fault for buying it.

This is a pretty standard liquor store for this area;its not the worst but also not the greatest, and the guy who works the counter was nice to me when I came in last and seemed knowledgeable about what this store carried in stock. He also made an effort to greet me upon entrance and made an attempt to engage me in a light conversation about sports, so all in all; I'd say this is a decent store to obtain your "Liquid Courage".

This place is conveniently located at San Pablo and Solano and has short term parking in front so there are usually spaces. The proprietors are very friendly, which is why I prefer this place to other small stores in the area. It's clean and has a pretty good wine selection. I most often go there when I don't want to deal with the full-on grocery store experience - half and half, bottle of wine, snacks. Everything is always fresh - never had a 1/2 & 1/2 go full review
