We were in Dallas for a wedding and decided to go to Babe's because of a suggestion. Glad we did. The food, the atmosphere, the service and the employees were all top shelf. They are known for their chicken and most of the table ordered it in some form. I ordered the catfish and lest the restaurant stuffed!

This is not fine dining. You pick your meat and they give you bowls of sides. Salad, corn, mashed potatoes (4th side varies). You also get a plate of amazing biscuits. This is a favorite place we keep on our list of go to restaurants.

... Or at least it should be. I have been frequenting this establishment for the past 15 years, as often as I am able to be back in my hometown. They consistently serve what many of us locals consider to be the best southern food in the area - and it is done family-style. With no menus to be found,... More

The wait can be long, the food is a little pricey, but the food is so good. And you will leave full. Very, very, full. You get a choice of entree served family style (fried chicken, baked chicken, chicken fried steak, catfish, or chicken tenders) and all you can eat sides and biscuits. There are slight variations of what food... More

The food at Babes is excellent. You order your meat of choice, either fish, chicken, chicken fried steak, pot roast, and another I believe. They bring all the vegetables you can eat. Normally, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans. Salad comes before the meal and it has the best dressing on it. They bring rolls and or Corn... More

We went on Father's Day and waited about 45 minutes at 530pm. So, our group of 6 had a good appetite by the time the food arrived. I did not try the biscuits, so no comment on those. All the ones served at our table were eaten though. Word of warning, do not fill up on the salad! It is... More

If you are looking for great food and awesome customer service. This is the place!!!! Everything they did during our visit awesome. Not only to our group but to all their customers. One of the best places I have ever eaten and I'm a senior citizen.

Our family has gone to Babe's multiple times in multiple locations and this one does not disappoint. First of all, come hungry. Come REALLY hungry. There's no menu cause there are two entree choices: fried chicken or chicken fried steak. You also get a steady parade of side dishes, including salad (the only thing I skimp on at Babes -... More

This place specializes in at home style dinning. You sides come in bowls everyone at your table serves themselves from. You meat, chicken in my case comes as several pieces on a plate. You start with an empty plate as you might at home. Then load up. Young but very attentive staff.

All of the meat choices are great... I would avoid the roast & catfish as you can get better tasting options from home. The baked chicken, fried chicken, ribs, and chicken fingers are OUTSTANDING. You can't go wrong! The sides come standard... creamed corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, and gravy... although the sides come standard, they are not your ordinary... More
