Our favorite place to bring out of town guests!

Every time we have visitors, we come here. Great home cooked food that reminds me of my grandmother's cooking back in the day. They serve their food family style, and the meat portions are huge. Don't skip the banana pudding and the chocolate cream pie - best ever! Love Babe's!

The food is always great at Babe's! I don't know what is in those mashed potatoes that makes mealtime magic but they are glorious. Better than homemade in my case. The service that day was not as good as I normally experience. Some chatting among the wait staff slowed it down. The restaurant could use some freshening. Tables and decor... More

Waitress was very friendly and i guess we looked lost just us 2 when everyone had big parties. Its odd that they had no menus and the we had to ask our waitress to repreat the meat types 3 times. We still didnt know how much items cost. I dont like to feel the unknown on prices and i was... More

I've tied many entres and enjoyed them all. But the best part of my meal has always been the sides. I really recommend the chicken strips.

Babes is always a great place to take the family or a get together! Amazing fried chicken. Great Chicken Fried Steak! One insiders tip: try the Smoked Chicken!! It's out of this world!

What this place lacks in atmosphere is certainly made up with great food and service. The decor is rustic with life size posters of John Wayne and other famous people hung on the wall. The fried chicken is crispy and savory. You get a breast, thigh, wing and leg. The fried catfish is also a great dish to order. All... More

This was a family-style presentation of the sides with unlimited sides, and a meat selection from the menu to go with it. I had the chicken tenders with my group, and they were very good. Lots of veggies and biscuits to go around, but be careful about that final tally at the end. Really good food, though.

We were a group of 12 on a busy Saturday before Mother's Day. We were seated within ten minutes adapted feel of privacy even though they were packed. Our menu was a variety of Chicken, Catfish, Chicken Fried Steak, and Ribs. No one was disappointed. Servers were polite and efficient. This location is just as good as the others. Highly... More

All four of us ordered the fried chicken. The salad is the low point of the meal; just lettuce and a house dressing. However, the rest of the meal is excellent with there being more chicken than we can eat. The corn, mashed potatoes and green beans are delicious and are served as "all you can eat." I also like...

We were a bus of 52 that descended upon the restaurant...they were ready for us. Good wholesome food, good service. Food is served family style, and other than the mean/fish and desserts everything else is unlimited. I'd go back for a quick, good meal.
