BABES!!!! This is our number one choice for comfort food. Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Chicken! Get an order of each and share. The sides are served family style, and they will keep the refills coming! I like the simple dressing on the salad! The biscuits are moist, the gravy is great, the corn is creamed and the taters...

We have eaten at Babe's Chicken on numerous occasions, but still don't understand what all the hype is about. They have a limited menu. The fried chicken and chicken fried steak are mediocre at best. The price is alright, the ambiance is nice, but the wait to get in is usually a long time. I have friends that travel from... More

went here a couple of days after Christmas with the entire family. We have been going here for years, and they never disappoint. The food and service is always excellent. Family style and plenty of it! Be prepared to wait if you don't get there early. And BYOB. Lots of people sit around in the warmer weather, but they do... More

This place was actually recommended by a coworker before I even traveled here. I dined here twice while in the area on business, because it was so good! The menu is very simple... there is no menu. You have the choice of either chicken fried steak or fried chicken. With your meat selection, you get all of the fixins' you... More

I've been to Babe's 3 or 4 times and I either love it or hate it. This time I loved it. I like the fried chicken better than the chicken fried steak. This time the chicken was so good. It was tasty and moist. The salad is swimming in dressing and meh. The mashed potatoes and creamed corn are ok... More

we ordered a huge spread of fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and sides. being an out-of-towner, it was a great experience: i felt like i was experiencing a bit of "real texas". the decor was really interesting and the servers were friendly and the portions were truly gigantic. but, i have tasted better fried chicken elsewhere. for me, the batter...

We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed! You have to be careful though as it can get very busy so go early if you can! Very good waitstaff and pleasant atmosphere!

I've been going to original Babe's Chicken in Roanoke since I moved to Texas over 10 years ago and they never disappoint. Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, cream corn, biscuits and a salad (all the sides are all you can eat). I typically go with the chicken but I've had the chicken fried steak as well and it was up there... More
