Once again we ate at Babe's, and I think this was the best ever! Our waitress, Logan, was very attentive. I exercised pretty hard yesterday just so I could splurge on the chicken fried steak with homemade gravy. It was delicious--not too thick or thin, and just enough breading to cover the meat but not be overwhelming. My mom also... More

Ate here on a Sunday evening about 6:00 pm. We were seated fairly quickly. We were a party of 7. My husband and I both ordered the catfish. Three ordered chicken fried steak, one the fried chicken and one the smoked chicken. We enjoyed the catfish and the smoked chicken was declared good. Those eating the chicken fried steak thought...

Catfish is very light here. Excellent coconut creme pie also! Good friendly service on the square. Get there early you will also love vegetables and homestyle atmosphere.

If you are really hungry, aren't terribly choosy about selection and are fond of basic fried entrees, this place will probably be right up your alley. You have a choice of fried chicken strips, chicken fried steak, fried fish (are you seeing the pattern?), and baked chicken (and maybe one more). With a very generous portion of your selected meat,... More

Went to Babe's with adult friends who understood the ordering arrangement. At our table we orderend individual servings of fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and fried catfish. Everyone was served with family style cream corn, mashed potatoes, green beans and bisquits. Not your low carb/low fat/low calorie meal. The food quality and quantity were good and the service was very... More

Homestyle fried chicken and chicken fried steak, corn, string beans and rich mashed potatoes are the dinner choices. Fried batter is relatively light and good. Overall food is good but not great. Atmosphere is fun. Service is friendly and straightforward. Great place for kids and big groups of people. No beer or wine. BYOB.

Loved this place! It is a tad pricey but great for families since it is served family style. We were seated almost immediately for it being a Saturday night in Granbury. When the hokey pokey played our boys (ages 4 & 5) loved it and even joined in with the waitstaff in the middle of the restaurant. Afterwards, our waitress... More

I simply forgot that I could not order from the menu however when we stopped in the door we recalled that this is one of those family style places where you must be hungry when you dine here. The last time we were that was the case and we thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant and the food. It was still early... More

We did not realize that the meal would be served family style. The teen in our group did not like the meal, very traditional/plain food not what he was used to. Pricing was also a little confusing as we did not see where prices were listed. Older people in our group did enjoy. Definitely would depend on what your group's... More
