Had a nice dinner with family (8 of us). The wait staff was very nice and the kids liked doing the "Hokey Pokey". The food was hot and plentiful. Like the title says, good food and good value.

If my Mom were alive and cooked food like I got today at Babe's, I would disown her. I've given Babe's a 5 star rating before. What happened?? Way, way to much salt in nearly everything. They had burnt, over-cooked and very greasy green beans. The corn had corn-silk still in it. The gravy was too salty for me to... More

Don't see what all the fuss is about: lines out the door, crowded parking lot. I like the family style and all you can eat sides, but it is not the best fried chicken ever.

Babe's food can not be beaten. It is just like Granny used to cook. We have been eating at Babe's for 19 years...since it opened. We have never had a bad meal. The only negative is the noise level is loud! Great place to eat.

Fantastic food served family style very quickly. Quirky decor reminds me of road trips on the back roads of Texas. This is the ONLY good country gravy I have found in a restaurant.

Family style servings - best thing is that they make you feel welcome! Great food - Chicken and Fish excellent, and the sides arent too bad either!

Both my husband and I were taken back to Grandma's house and happy childhood memories as we ate at Babe's. It is old fashioned home cooking for those who grew up in the South. Look for fried meats, mashed potato's and gravy.
