We went here with some friends to this, the original Babe's location. It is different from other locations in that the menu is different. At this location, the meat choices are fried chicken and chicken fried steak. Both are excellent. The vegetables which are served family style consist of salad with house dressing, mashed potatoes and corn. All meals are... More

I was introduced to Babe's while visiting Roanoke by my friends Dan and Kat (thanks so much!). I was shocked when told the wait was 45 minutes(!) but it really didn't matter. I was with friends and had no where to rush off to. I was actually encouraged by the fact that so many people waiting outside had obviously decided... More

Family style dining. The wait to get in was long and parking in Roanoke is limited so expect a walk. The food did not disappoint.

We always take out of town friends here!!! No menus, they only serve Fried Chicken or Chicken Fried Steak. Sides come family style, lettuce salad with a sweet/sour vinaigrette, biscuits, mashed potatoes, gravy, and corn. You can only take home leftover meat in a small plastic bag. This is because they bring you unlimited sides and don't want people to... More

Delicious chicken and endless sides served family style. This place never disappoints your tastebuds, but warn your stomach: there's almost always a wait. (It's totally worth it though!)

Worth a little wait in historic Roanoke where there are several shops to check out while waiting to be seated. Good home style cooking altho did find out this "original site" does not have as many menu choices as several of the other Babe's. Still enjoyed sharing a delicious chicken fried steak, house salad, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed corn, biscuits... More

Best Fried Chicken ever! You will not leave hungry. Great for famalies . Casual . On your birthday you get a chicken hat on your head and have to do a chicken dance. The biscuits are delicious! Sides are like Grandmothers!

I'm not all that thrilled with chicken-fried steak. I am a California transplant and didn't grow up on the favored Texas fare. I've had it a few times, but it's never my go-to order, too bready for me. Wow. I'm a convert! This chicken-fried steak was scrumptious. Lightly battered, cooked to perfection and so flavorful. The fun entertainment (including the... More

If you love deep fried chicken and tons of carbs this is the place for you. Great mashed potatoes, great biscuits and great fried chicken. I have to go here at least once a year.
