This location totally sucked. Went there to celebrate my mom’s birthday but could not hold a conversation due to the loud music. Babes does this so you are forced to watch the staff perform a line dance. Ask me if I care about the stupid line dancing! How about the “side dishes”? Awful. They refused to bring me a menu... More

The food is delicious. My school regularly uses Babe's to cater dinners. We all flock to the chicken tenders, the mashed potatoes, the creamy gravy, and the biscuits. Babe's understands sweet tea. There is no menu so pay attention when the server rattles off the meat choices. I love the variety of music played. (Note: The wait staff dances the... More

It is not only the atmosphere that people love. It is the food, especially the fried chicken. You choose your meat item from fried chicken, fried chicken strips, fried catfish, chicken fried steak, or smoked chicken. You do not choose the vegetables. They just bring them to the table. The vegetables and buttermilk biscuits are FANTASTIC! They are also all... More

We went here for dinner. Near Cowboy Stadium. Expect some wait outside. Once seated, serves was quick and good. This place serves family style so keep that in mind during order. You can get free refills on the vegs (includes salad that was first served). Biscuits are great, try them. You can get fried chicken, smoked chicken, and chicken fried... More

Based on terrific TripAdvisor reviews, we went to Babe's. The only thing we wish we would have known before going is that all of the sides are unlimited refills. We enjoyed both fried and smoked chicken. Although we thought we would favor the smoked chicken, we actually preferred the fried flavor, although both were excellent. Come ready to enjoy the... More

As a place to get homework done and eat lunch, this was awful. It was the first time I had been to this restaurant, and my waitress was unbelievably snobbish. She didn't seem to like that I was working on homework, and when I asked for a menu, and said that they don't give out any. When I asked her... More

It has been over two years since our visit to Dallas/Arlington area and this meal still is in the back of my mind as the best meal of my life. We were able to choose a single meat each, along with fried chicken, vegetables and homemade biscuits. The fried chicken was very succulent and had some of the best flavor.... More
