Don't go on Friday night

Ribs, one of my favorite meats, is no longer on the menu. The food is really good and delivered to the table piping hot. Friday nights are too loud and too crowded.

Fried chicken, with traditional fixins' (mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed corn, biscuits), served family style. What's not to love? And all this delicious home style cooking in a Texas old downtown setting, in the former City Hall building!!! Talk about character and charm...I just love this place!! I've been to one of their other another locations in the MetroPlex, but this... More

Babe's Chicken is THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!! Every Sunday my family and I enjoy food from Babe's Cedar Hill. Everything is cooked to perfection. I have always had a preference for dark meat, but this chicken is so deliciously prepared that even the breasts tastes good!! This is hands-down the BEST grilled/smoked chicken I've ever eaten. ...and the vegetables taste as... More

I started going to this place 10 years ago and still love it just as much as the first time! There food is delicious and now that they have smoked chicken, I don't see how it could get any better.

We usually eat at Babe's in Carrollton. The Cedar Hill resturaunt proved to be just as good. The biscuits are fresh and wonderful. I usually get the catfish and my son got chicken fried steak. We were not disappointed. Sides are served family style and refilled, but we were too full for seconds. Great service. Be aware you may have... More

A friend advised me that i wouldn't like this restaurant because she knows I know how to cook and make things from scratch...but I went one night with my daughter-in-law...my friend was right. The chicken was too dark and not at all juicy under the crust. The green beans were flavorless and the mashed potatoes nothing special. All in all,... More

After a very disappointing experience at another restaurant in Cedar Hill (very long wait and we were never seated) we decided to give Babe's a try. We were seated immediately and placed our order right away. We loved the family style service and we each tried different entrees so we could sample them all. The food was great as was... More

I've heard great things about Babes and we finally went. They have this creepy rabbit/cat that scares the little kids- you can't find the bathroom door which I didn't care for. The chicken tastes like Church's with extra breading on it. The vegetables were pretty good but they added pepper to everything. Biscuits we're good. They should just skip the... More

The wife and I have enjoyed Babe's for years. This is the 5th site of the 9 that we have visited. Everything was great as always. The Fried Chicken is almost as good as my Mom's and the same goes for the Banana Pudding. Needless to say we had to walk around the Downtown area due to over eating.

We'll I was surprised the chicken was really good. The mash potatoes, gravy, bread,green beans where awesome!! I really didn't like the sweet corn that's just because I don't like seer corn that much. Over all if your looking for some home cooking, try them out. And another thing the price was not bad at all. We paid $28 and... More
