Max & Erma’s FREE Cookies Wednesday + a Gift Card Giveaway!

Max and Ermas Gift Card Giveaway

Update: This giveaway has ended. Winners are #60, Melissa K and #28, Susan J.

Have you been to Max & Erma’s lately? I used to frequent Max & Erma’s for lunch weekly when I worked in downtown Columbus, and now I like to take my family to dinner there when the mood strikes. With a family friendly atmosphere, kids meals priced under $5 and awesome burgers, Max & Erma’s is a fun and yummy place to eat!

Last week my family and I went to Max & Erma’s to check out their FREE Cookies Wednesday promotion. I love Max & Erma’s salads and burgers, so I ordered a side salad in place of fries and a mushroom/mozzarella burger that I chose to ate without the bun (see images above).  My husband had the Tortilla Burger and he gave it rave reviews!

After we ate our burgers and fries, salad and chicken and fries (the kids), our server brought these out to us:

max and ermas free cookies wednesday

My kids were in heaven! We each ate a cookie and had 4 to take home to eat the next day! Here is how the Max & Erma’s Free Cookies Wednesday promotion works – for every 1 menu item that you order, you receive 2 FREE cookies! You can eat them at the restaurant, or take them home. I know that we will be going back again soon to take advantage of this offer.

WIN IT! Does this look like something you would like to try? Max & Erma’s has given me (2) $20 gift cards to give away to 2 lucky winners!

The cookies are fun, but if I have to choose real food – it would be the Watermelon Harvest salad or the Apple Pecan Chicken salad.
