Good BBQ Chicken, Salad...

Babe's Bar-B-Que was conveniently located near our hotel and within walking distance. It had an inviting exterior, relaxed atmosphere which one would expect from a BBQ joint and the food did not disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed our orders of 1/2 BBQ Chicken and their Classic BBQ Salad with... read more

This is our second visit in 2 years. The food was delicious, and the craft beer selection as well as their own brewery choices are top notch! Fun ambiance and cool western ranchy-pig motif decoration. Great for family, couples, and small grouos. Our waitress, Michelle, was a doll! Will be back!

Excellent service and excellent food. You will not be disappointed. This will be a staple place to eat every time I am in Palm Springs. Menu is excellent. Fried green beans were perfection. The free strawberry pineapple sorbet at the end sealed the deal. Excellent job Babe's!!!!

Nice western atmosphere. Good home brewed beers. Tri-tip was very good. Baby back ribs were good. The corn bread was excellent. Had to buy some to eat with the leftovers. Only negative comment would be that it was a little pricey for BBQ. Overall a good time and would go back.

We had hoped that since they featured Bar B Que ribs, which we both love, they would be the "best" but unfortunately neither of us were satisfied with Babe's ribs and lack of a variety of side dishes. Parking at the River, where Babe's is located, is horrible!

Who knew you could find great bbq in a high end shopping center in the California desert. The restaurant is at the end near the free parking lot, which is helpful in the summer heat. Great happy hour. Great selection. Great craft beers. Great food. We came in at the end of happy hour and there was some confusion about... More

When the best part of the meal was the complimentary sorbet after dinner, that gives you the idea. Nothing was bad, but nothing was better than average. Couple that with high prices, and I can't recommend Babe's. The beers were also sub-par, which is disappointing since they brew it. Perhaps being from San Diego spoils me for most breweries, but...

Stopped during afternoon with family. Fabulous service. Food was excellent - ribs amazing. The restaurant looks really well and the owner is very nice and a very interesting man who explained all about the brewery within his restaurant. Would highly recommend.

This appears to be a very trendy place to eat and the building itself is a very nice place to eat. I thought the prices were a little expensive but the food did taste very good. The beer was excellent and I would highly recommend the house brews. Could not fault the service very friendly and attentive.
