I had eaten at a different Babes location so we decided to try this one since we were going to AT&T for a game. Arrived about 11:45 on a Saturday and we were seated immediately. Drinks were brought promptly. It didn't take long for our food. Some of our party arrived late due to traffic, no problem, our server took... More

Babe's is a wonderful eating experience. Great décor, great servers and the BEST chicken you have ever eaten. The family style dining is a unique experience and the sides are soooo delicious.

Where has this place been all my life! A friend of ours took my wife and I to Babe's for lunch. We ordered fried chicken for the table with mashed potatoes, cream corn, green beans, and I don't remember what else. The chicken was cooked perfectly! The breast was very very tender and very juicy. I ate way to much... More

Recommended by a friend so I am passing along the recommendation. Expect to wait a bit for a table (we waited 30min) but well worth the wait. But if you are going when it is cold take a jacket because you wait outside in a patio but they have a fire pit going. The service and food were excellent and... More

Babe's is a very fun, unique place. The food is excellent, and so is the fun atmosphere. I am not a big salad fan...but their green salad and its dressing is to die for. I have been trying to duplicate it in my home for years to no avail. My husband always gets the catfish, and I always get the... More

We stopped here after being recommended by a friend. We had less than an hour to order and feed a party of seven and the waitress was so helpful in telling us the right amount to order and getting our food out quickly. Everything was delicious (particularly the creamed corn) and we were talking about the chicken fried steak for... More

Fun restaurant with a great atmosphere. Family style dining here with your individual choice of meat. We went with the fried chicken which was better than most fried chicken places. Servings were plentiful and our favorite sides included the green beans and biscuits. Overall a very good meal and we left absolutely stuffed.

Thank Maverick1904
