This is a great place to eat for a family gathering. there is plenty of room in the place with long tables for up to 20 per table. There are small tables for for just couples and solo. The corn which is served is my favorite veggie.

Babe's has the best fried chicken around! Their family-style sides are all very good, but the green beans are my favorite! They taste like my grandmother's green beans. They are seasoned with wonderful seasonings (unhealthy, I'm sure). Their chicken fried steak is also delicious! No complaints here. If you want good, down-home cooking, you're in luck! If you're on a... More

Babes offers wonderful food served family style; however, it's very noisy. I imagine the waitstaff doing the "Hokey Pokey" is supposed to be entertaining, but it distracts children from eating, makes conversation difficult, and really isn't very entertaining. The food is hard to beat, especially if you like down-home comfort food like chicken fried steak, fried chicken, and biscuits. Each... More

Once you're past the wait time of about 20 mins, you are in down home cooking heaven! We were a large party of 8 so of course we had to wait a little bit to be seated. Once we were seated the rest was history. We've always like the family-style dining Babe's offers. It's really very much like everyone sitting... More

Babe's offers delicious fried chicken and fried catfish. All meals are served family style, with unlimited refills of the excellent biscuits and side dishes: mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, plus the vegetable of the day. Lots of fun for family dining. Can get kind of loud. The WONDERFUL home-cooking is the attraction -- you'll waddle out a happy camper!

If you are looking for good down home cooking, I highly recommend Babe's. Nothing fancy here, but the food is exceptional. They serve family style, with choice of fried chicken, other meats, and all the cooked vegetables you can eat. Everything was very tasty, and the staff was fantastic. Go early, because this place fills up quick!

I love this place . Very homely and you get enough sides to fill you up. I have had everything on the menu and the only thing you will regret is not trying everything at least once- if you have a large party they will not seat you until everyone is present. I also love how they celebrate birthdays and... More

The food is fantastic and it is good for the whole family. The chicken couldn't be better. The vegetables are so good that you could just eat them. They keep bring more vegetables when you run out. The waitresses are always there to bring more food and keep your drinks full.

everything we tried over several visits was mouthwatering delicious. Even the green beans are cooked "to death" like my family has always done. Expect crowds and for a good reason.

Best fried chicken I've had in years. The green beans were ok, potatoes and grave good, biscuits were great.
