Wonderful Food, Substandard Host

The good news is that Babe's has terrific food, and has had on every visit. Honestly, it it just plain perfect food.. exactly what you would want! Unfortunately, on our last visit, the terrific food was not as enjoyable as it could have been because the "host" (fellow that seated us) was rude and... read more

This is the best BBQ experience in the valley. The samplers are the best bet because you'll see how the wonderful their range of dishes are. The chicken ribs and beans are at the top of my list. It's a big place so there's no waiting. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. The opposite of other BBQ places we... More

My wife and I were recently staying in the Palm Desert area and we once again decided to eat at Babe's. We've eaten there a number of times and we've never left disappointed. We had a late lunch this time around. I would say the restaurant was about 1/3 full when we arrived. We both ordered the brisket sandwich and... More

The experience went from bad to worst..........we ordered ice tea that was sour and water that came in a tiny plastic glass. Unable to find filet mignon on the menu I ordered a rib eye at $35. I was informed that the sides did not include a baked potato or salad. At this point we decided to leave and were... More

My husband ordered the rib special that was offered the evening we ate there. He loved the taste and really enjoyed the food. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was yummy. We tried a couple different beers and they were good. Very busy when we were there so we opted to eat in the bar area. There were... More

This restaurant is funky fun. It has sort of a "peanut hulls on the floor" feel to it. The ribs are pretty good but the BBQ sandwichs are pulled pork or beef smothered in a sweet BBQ sauce. I am biased in my rating but am used to good ole Southern BBQ. Like in Alabama, Texas, Kansas City and Menphis... More

Big restaurant with great design and atmosphere. Lots of dining booths, perfect for a family of four. They have their own microbrewery and serve some excellent and award winning beers that go great with the food. The BBQ dishes are expertly executed and the portions are humongous. Great Flavours from their own brand BBQ sauce. Worth going back any day... More

Great restaurant, great food, reasonably priced. Family of 4 stopped for lunch, wish there were more of them throughout U.S. We travel enough that we are usually disppointed with restaurants, not this one! Would go back if we lived closer!

We were in here on a slow Sunday night. We had very attentive service. The barbecue is really good and the deserts even better. I was really liking the vibe. They kept playing the best turn-of-the-century hits from the Goo Goo Dolls, Lifehouse, Sheryl Crow etc with a sprinkling of Third Eye Blind. Hey cringed every time Jack Johnson came... More

Great barbeque. Fabulous beer. Sides were excellent. The sweet potato was amazing. Baked beans tasted like homemade. Loved the Barbeque sauce. The restaurant itself is very large and the décor is really warm and inviting. Love all the large pig statues.
