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

popular BBQ joint. Good food and a fun atmosphere. Totally kid friendly. In a shopping mall, so you can walk around afterwards and do some shopping. Brisket sandwich was delish.

Another remnant of the fading BBQ chains that were so common until recently. The fare is typical and the service comes with smiles but not speed. The bar is not a happening place, nor do they seem to want it to be. Unless you know the bartenders do not expect much attention. They seem to cater to their clique of... More

The best ribs I have eaten so far, was going to just have steak, yet this place smelled, looked, and smiling faces yelled what are you waiting for "RIBS! please". I tried the sampler of New Orleans style ribs, they was juicy, just right, smooth to the bite, and the sweat tangy BBQ sauce was a perfect coating of bliss.... More

Great place for beers and bar-b-que. Had a flight of their beers and really enjoyed them and the bar-b-que tri tips were outstanding. Good smokey flavor and prepared just right. I liked that the sauce was minimal, they let the flavor of the smokey beef stand on its own and it worked. Casual atmosphere and good service made this an... More

This is the perfect example of an ok place. Nothing to really complain about and nothing to tell your friends about. I had the St Louis Ribs which were very nice, my wife had the BBQ chicken which wasnt as nice, it was very, very dry. Service was ok, friendly enough but you didnt feel like the staff really cared...

Not sure how you classify the bar be que at Babe's, nothing like the Texas Bar be que we like, After a long day playing looking for a great bar be que , this is not, atmosphere is nice but food far from expectations and expensive for the amount on servings. The brew was OK, maybe a good place to... More

The restaurant is nice. Cool interior with pigs in every size and shape. The food was good, but nothing special. My husbands food was partial cold, so he sent it back. Big portions for European standards.The waiter was attentiv and nice. The prices are a bit high we thought.

My husband and I both had the tri tip and St. Louis rib combo. The food was very good. Each dinner came with two sides. I got the corn on the cob and the French fries. The combos were $28.00 each.

We always make Babes a plan for dinner whenever we go to Indian Wells. It is in a nice area called The River where there are several good restaurants, a huge movie theatre and several shops. You are greeted by huge bronze pigs outside and the atmosphere inside is upscale bbq. The food is really good and they are also... More
