Lots of people love this place, but I really don't see what's so special about it. The atmosphere inside is very nice but the food was just so so and a little on the expensive side.

Didn't have a good idea what I was getting into here but glad I got into it. You get 5 choices of meat - fried chicken, smoked chicken (amazing smokey flavor), chicken fried steak (excellent!), some kind of fish and I forget the last one. It'll come with biscuits (heavenly with honey), salad (just lettuce with dressing), green beans (hello... More

Newer looking Babe's. Very spacious which gives a different feel from the ones in the DFW are I have been to. Food is the same....salty, buttered, and fried!

Neat atmosphere, good food but sometimes a bit salty. I'd rate them a 4.5 Stars except they quit serving my favorite dish, the pot roast. It was the bomb.. now all you can get is chicken and chicken and chicken or fried and fried.. fried catfish and Chicken Fried steak. I used to go here once every week or two...... More

This restaurant serves huge portions. The fried chicken was made the old fashioned way, came out hot, juicy, tender and not greasy. Accompanied with large family-style bowl of green beans cooked with bacon, and mashed potatoes with white cream gravy. Wonderful homemade biscuits are included. The mashed potatoes and gravy were the best I have ever had anywhere. Staff was... More

Like all of the Babe's in the metroplex, this one does not disappoint! It's family style and offers 5 menu choices. All are wonderful. Can't go wrong, but do go early, there is almost always a wait!

Babe's is a family style dinner in a casual atmosphere. You choose the meat you want and they bring unlimited sides of salad, biscuits, mashed potatoes, green beans, and creamed corn. The fried chicken and chicken tenders are delicious. The chicken fried steak is huge and my daughter's favorite. The waitresses are all friendly and outgoing. When particular songs come... More

Babe's has great home style cooking, served family style. I particularly love their fried chicken and my husband loves their chicken fried steak. The staff is friendly and it's a fun place to go. Love the way the staff in between serving food, provide entertainment by dancing in the aisle and some sing to the jute box. It's located in... More
