Tried the fried chicken, chicken fried steak, fried catfish and smoked ribs. They were all great! I will be back!

Babe's is a Garland institution. It is the epitome of tacky decorations, home style entertainment, and stick-to-your-ribs family style meals that you can remember from your childhood if you had a grandma raised on country cookin'. First, the decor. Babes has a mismatch collection of tables, chairs, wall decorations, and the bottom half of a flock of ducks glued to... More

They subscribe to the Henry Food theory, "You can get any color you want as long as it's black." when it comes to the menu. They have limited choices which isn't an issue for me (but they have Chicken Fried Steak but not Chicken Fried Chicken at a chicken place). They also have RC Cola on tap which puts me... More

I have visited several Babe's locations around the DFW area over the years. This one is by far my favorite. All locations have great food and a funky down home type atmosphere, but this one just seems more comfortable. The main reason I love this location is the ribs. Everyone knows and loves Babe's for the great fried chicken and... More

This is a garland institution in a good way. It is unique so it is high on everyone's list. Food is true family style. A bowl of corn or mashed potatoes for your table. It is of good quality for home cooking and is an enjoyable place. Like a friendly small town refuge in the big city

My family and I stumbled on this place by a friend's recommendation. It is small and located in a strip mall, so my first impression was that it was not going to be for me. The waitresses are very friendly and smile all the time. Hmm, ok check. Then the ordering process consisted of the waitress asking what meat we... More

I have been multiple times and ABSOLUTELY love this place! Every single item is the best I have ever had. The only negative thing I have to say is that the last time I went, the smoked chicken was a little undercooked. But I'm no professional. I have eaten here about 30 times and that was a first. I cannot... More

Do you go out for home-cooking? This is the place for you. In a hurry, call ahead and pick up a to-go dinner!

Food is served family style. The tables and chairs are like going to grandma's for Sunday dinner. Choices are fried or baked. I recommend the fried chicken which is moist, meaty with a crispy outside layer. The sides come in a big bowl for everyone to get as much as they want. They are seasoned to perfection. They atmosphere is... More
