Expensive and just ok.

Mom and pop kind of place. It took awhile to get food. It actually was a little creepy to me. Kind of reminded me of a whole in the wall place you would see in a horror flick like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I stopped in out of curiosity after driving by Babe's many times. It's a little restaurant on Wardlow Road in Long Beach that doesn't really feel like any restaurant in this century. It reminded me of the A & A Café on Compton Blvd. in Compton when I was growing up. We called that the malt shop. It had the... More

Cockroaches scuttering across the counter cause me to scutter out of the door! The place was empty - I wonder how they passed their last Health Department inspection?

Small little mom & pop shop that serves a great breakfast. Homemade bread, jellies, highlight this place. It seats maybe 25, but don't let the size deter you. The bacon is thick, the home fries are yummy, and the atmosphere is friendly,

The place is simple, unadorned, plain. The food is hand-crafted home-made diner food. The staff is friendly and have been at Babe's for about 25 years.
