I went here two times for a company dinner and again with friends. It was requested many times after that. The southern fried chicken was good. The sides...omgosh! UNLIMITED SIDES!! How can you not go there and enjoy. The corn is the delicious creamy corn and the mash potatoes were perfect every time. I will say that I did have... More

What a great meal at this fun location. The food is delicious, served family style and worth every penny. I can't wait to go back sometime when I'm back inTexas.

My friends and I decided to drop by this place as we had seen such great reviews a few weeks ago! First off, Hat's off to the interior designer of the place, felt like I am back in the Old Days visiting a small town and of coarse a farm. Kids especially will love to look around inside the restaurant.... More

This down home restaurant is for those seeking serious comfort food including fried chicken, chicken fried steak, fried catfish, fried chicken fingers , cream corn, mashed potatoes with cream sawmill gravy, pole beans, and yes a salad (gotta have something green and light) . the décor was set as a 50's small town with lots of neon. The place is... More

Loved it. The chicken was incredible. There is no menu. You choose one of five main dishes and then the unlimited sides are served family style. The staff was friendly and the food was great. My only two complaints would be how dark it was inside and the fact that they served RC.

I had a very good meal at Babe's with a group of colleagues. I'm not sure why there are previous reviews complaining about the salad - this is clearly a chicken restaurant, and it does chicken very well. Forget about the salad. The meal started with some delicious "biscuits" (not like UK biscuits!) that were served warm, with maple syrup... More

I agree word for word with Texmark comments below. Good food and atmosphere, but the salad is the worst I've ever had.

I've eaten here many, many times during the past 2 years and Babe's never disappoints. I've also been to the ones in Burleson and Sanger (I prefer the decor in Sanger - more rustic). The food is consistently the same at all of their locations. They make very good fried chicken, but not much better than a Church's or a... More

What a great place to eat. I have never seen the amount of food in my life. My family of four each ordered the chicken tenders, and even after eating, we took a large bag of leftovers. Other than your drinks, the only choice we had was the meat. Veggies (corn, mashed potatoes, and green beans) came family style. Two... More
