Babe's serves comfort food, fried chicken, chicken fried steak, ribs, family style(single bowls of vegetables for everyone). The food is excellent, service is friendly and attentive. It is not a cheap place to eat, spent just over $50 for three of us.

Great fried and smoked chicken, but the endless sides make it a great meal. The fried corn is my favorite, there's also salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, biscuits and the veggie of the day!

This is the best commercial chicken fried steak in Dallas. The potatoes, gravy and corn are also just about perfect. All you can eat sides make this place a real winner. The menu has several meats available, but it is hard to get to them because I can't bypass the chicken fried steak. We eat here regularly, just ourselves, with... More

We arrived for a family get together for a Saturday lunch. My wife and I, both, ordered catfish as our meat dish. This catfish was not too heavily breaded and was as good as you can get. The biscuits had a homemade flavor. The one bowl of green beans was burned on one side but that did not hurt the... More

On our recent trip to Dallas, our local hosts insisted we all visit Babe's, one of their favorite restaurants. Famous for chicken fried steak and all you can eat family style sides, this place combines family atmosphere with great food, fun service, and don't over look the ribs. Our party had catfish, chicken fried steak, and my wife ordered ribs.... More

Babe's Chicken is the BEST chicken around. Hands down! The Family Style serving makes you feel like you are at Grandmaw's house and I will wait in line anytime to eat there!

It may not be the healthiest menu in the area, but the food is down-home great, the service is fast and super-friendly, and the prices are unbeatable. My favorite is chicken-fried steak; but the fried chicken is Babe's specialty. The only down-side comment is that there is almost always a line - but the 20 to 30 minute wait is... More
