Ate here 2 years running when on vacation in Palm Desert. This year ate here several times! Food - OUTSTANDING! Like nothing anywhere in the UK. Excellent quality, fabulous flavours. Pulled Pork fantastically tasty but the St Louis Ribs have to be tried to be believed. Drinks - EXCELLENT! Micro brewery beers brewed on site. My personal favourite is the... More

Had dinner after a movie recently. I ordered the St Louis ribs (half rack). They were tender and came off the bone and they had a tasty BBQ sauce. My companion had the tri tip menu item and I tasted some. As is typical of tri tip is was not the most tender cut of meat, but had a nice... More

It is close to the Hilton Garden Inn hotel. If you like meat it is good place to go. They have a variety of BBQ beef, pork & chicken. Their micro brew is nice and prices are not bad. It can get crowed but middle of the week is really nice.

We love Babe's. Usually we order the pulled pork sandwich which is terrific but the seafood salad is also excellent. Nice outdoor patio with misters - too warm this trip so we ate indoors.

Second visit, didn't like it first time and liked it less the second time. Ribs were tough and a little under done. There seemed to be attitude from the servers both times I visited. Certainly not usual in this fine neck of the woods. Atmosphere deadpan and tables were sticky. Seasonal vegetables was a bowl of carrots. So, it was... More

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
