Babes is a family restaurant. Not a good choice for a couple. The food is fine, and the atmosphere very "family". My problem is the noise. It is so loud, one has to yell across the table to be heard. Not my idea of dining.

Went with a large work group. They served us promptly and the food was good. It is served family style, so you will have to agree on some things with other. A couple of birthdays while we were there and that was fun to watch. It has a neat atmosphere, but is a bit dark (in case that bothers you).... More

Love this place. The location is convenient. Only problem is I don't get here as much as I should. The food is always fresh. Great staff and very attentive considering they are always busy. Fried chicken is always fresh tasting. The veggies are steaming hot and delicious!

The chicken is tasty but the cost of everything is not worth it. My wife and I went there to see if it was a place to bring a large group. We decided against it because the prices were to high.

Great price for alot - you will be hard pressed to not take home a doggie bag! They will not let you take home any sides - only chicken and biscuits - so start with the sides first - everything is yummy!

I have been to Babe's several times and have never been disappointed with the food and service. You will not leave hungry because the food is served family style and the sides just keep coming. We do not live close to Babe's, so when we go to Texas we try and go there. We always have a great time enjoying... More

this was our second visit to Babe's. My relatives who live in the area go there all the time. Food served family style.... not a lot of choices (fried chicken or chicken fried steak) but plenty of food and fixins. The biscuits are great and the family style service makes you feel at home. Save some room for deserts.... I... More

The food is consistently delightful and the staff is very friendly. Arrive early for a shorter wait time. This place gets very busy! The gravy is closest to granny's that I've seen...
