If you like ribs, and the usual cole slaw, baked bean, fries, etc., that accompany ribs, then this place is retry good. They brew beer, and, while I didn't have any, I'd be willing to wager it was pretty good. The ambiance was pleasant and, typical of a bar-b-cue restaurant, a bit cowboy themed, but not hopelessly corny and tacky.... More

Babes knows how to Que better than any restaurant I've been to. The ribs, the coleslaw, and most importantly their in house beers... They can brew a wonderful batch of craft beer. The service is always excellent. and the food is to match. Great place for a date, great place for a group of friends to come and relax while... More

My wife loves bar-b-que. I don't particularly like it. My wife tried the boneless beef bar-b-que and really liked it. I may try it myself the next time we visit. I wanted the fish and chips, but they were out of fish (or almost out of it), so I went with the burger and it was sizeable and excellent. The... More

Love this place - the "pig decor" alone makes it fun to come to. They know how to do ribs, and the beer brewed on site is delicious. Even on a hot day the patio is comfortably shady with misters. We had a rack of baby back ribs with to-die-for garlic mashed potatoes - love Babe's - we go there... More

I really wanted to like this place. I was there years ago and vaguely remember liking it. This time I thought the St Louis Ribs were nothing to write home about. It's average at best. Waiters were friendly and told us the owner is the son of the founders of Marie Callendars. So knowing that we ordered the corn bread... More

I thought the ribs were a bit too dry, and the sauce it lacking the kick. On the good note is that the full rack was quite filling.

Very convenient as it is right off Highway 111, excellent and friendly service. We were serviced very quickly and food was very good pub food. We had a pulled pork sandwich- very good! Prices were good as well.

The food here is very good. We had the sausage platter, cornbread, a couple of pulled pork lunches and ribs. I had the classic sampler and the beer is mediocre. I only really enjoyed the blackfin beer sampler. They have a lot of bottles of guest beer but at $6 a beer, you are better off just going to the... More

A great many restaurants serve, and claim to have the best baby back ribs. I've to many of the "rib joints", only to find disappointment in the flavor and quality of the ribs. So, we took a try at Babe's BBQ and I was not disappointed at all!!! The ribs were absolutely tender, tasty, with a terrific BBQ sauce. Couple... More

I was looking forward to some good ribs but unfortunately didn't get them here. The baby back ribs were dry and tough, not the marinated, slow cooked, falling-off-the-bones ribs I'm used to from trips to the south eastern states - that'll teach me to order BBQ in California! The garlic mashed potatoes were nice, the "seasonal mixed vegetables" were just... More
