Max's Sport Bar & OTB

Max's Sports Bar & OTB was established in 1979, making it the Glendale area's first sports bar. After a complete renovation and remodel in 2002, Max's Sports Bar & OTB, now stands proudly where its roots first took hold.

As the Valley's preeminent sports bar Max's features more than 95 television screens located throughout the facility, including the patio, and broadcasts almost every major sporting event for fans to watch and follow their favorite teams. One of the things Max's is famous for, besides the HUGE helmet collection, is the Jocko Bird. The Jocko Bird is the mascot of the bar created by the original owner, Max Beyer, who will greet you right inside the entrance.

The kitchen and restaurant have turned home-made items like the Iowa Pork Loin Sandwich, its famous half pound Jocko burgers and sandwiches into fan favorites. From tempting homemade soups to mouth-watering desserts, Max's menu has something to suit every taste.

The wagering center features numerous big-screen televisions and 28 private-betting carrels equipped with personal television monitors. Both thoroughbred and greyhound races are simulcast daily from around the country and available for wagering.
