Great!!!!

My husband and I shared th baby back ribs and agree with other reviewers that they were delicious. They had a lot of meat on them and were very tender. Our friend had BBQ chicken and said it was wonderful. Great service. We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.

This is THE place to go for great ribs. No reservations taken, but it's a big place and the wait isn't too long, but worth waiting for!

How do you beat Babes? Great food and great brewery. Excellent ambience, reasonable prices and engaged staff. Wish I could eat BBQ more often. Best in class for BBQ brewery.

We were told the ribs were good and we were not disappointed. We avoided the starters and went straight for meat which was juicy, tasty and fell off the bone. We will go back!!!

I don't understand why this place is so popular. We waited 30 minutes for a table. All the food was steeped in sugar. Too much sugar in the bbq sauce. Sugar on the sweet potato fries! Really!? The bbq 1/2 chicken was overcooked - especially the white meat portion. The traditional coleslaw with was pretty good - not too much... More

We stopped in to see a packed house, and a 30 minute wait for seating. We ordered a 1/2 BQ chicken and a pulled pork BBQ sandwich, plus a couple of draft brews. The brews were just fine. So was the side of cole slaw, with a crisp and clean flavor. The wait staff was friendly and courteous, and working... More

This place tries to be good. BBQ is easy to do in an average way, but so so hard to to do it really well. This place produces only average BBQ. The brisket was the toughest I have ever eaten and really undersmoked. I guess they rushed this batch to keep up with orders and pulled it out way too... More

Then Babe's is the place. The ribs are slow cooked not par boiled. They are not slathered in sauce, but you can add more to taste. No reservations - a buzzer and the wait is usually not too long. If you like crowds eat inside. The patio is smaller and quieter.

Great restaurant in a very nice mall. Nice décor and casual ambiance. Great patio with outdoor seating. Wonderful food. Service was very slow for lunch, but very friendly! You absolutely must try the freshly made strawberry lemonade! I normally don't like super sweet drinks, but this one is outstanding!
