Had no idea what to expect except the recommendation of great fried chicken. The waitress stated, you pick the meat we do the rest and she wasn't kidding. The food was way more than we could finish and excellent. Well worth the wait which was organized and not as bad as you would think.

Babe's Chicken started in little town North of Fort Worth Texas and now is in several cities. I believe all are in buildings from long ago. Menu: Fried Chicken, Chicken Fried Steak, Cat Fish, Pot Roast And perhaps one other I do not remember now. The Salad is so good could almost make a meal from it. One selects the... More

We went with another couple. The outside is very nice in good weather, as they have a welcoming patio area. The inside is made like we are eating on an outside patio, surrounded by buildings that seem vintage and are lit up. The food is ordered, and hope you have a big appetite be ause they serve way too much... More

Babe's was really good when it first opened but the quality of this location seems to be not where it was when it opened up. Also seating can be small. We drive to the Burleson location for the food and service we expect from Babe's.

Babe's offers fried chicken and a few other meats, and endless mashed potatoes, cream corn, green beans, basic salad and delicious rolls - all served family style. Babe's is hard to beat for fried chicken.

If you love fried chicken, creamed corn, homemade biscuits. Then you will love this place. It is down home cooking at its best!

Babes is some of the best fried chicken you've ever eaten and I don't care where you've had it before. It's served family style to your table with good sides, but the chicken is the star of the show. Atmosphere varies with locations, but both that I've visited were great. Wait staff is friendly, sometimes quirky and all have a... More
