Served family style, the chicken is always juicy and tasty. The cream corn is a star. The mashed potatoes and gravy round out an unforgettable meal. It's better than grandma used to make.

There are limitations, they cook fried chicken. Very good fried chicken, but still fried chicken. Well actually, the waitress welcomed me with a recital of the menu. She said, we only have two items: fried chicken and chicken fried steak. All the sides were automatically delivered. Service was excellent. Price was very reasonable.

Babe's is an original in the building, interior décor, table settings, wall décor! But this is the best family style fried chicken dinner! You meet people who talk about fried chicken and the question always comes up, "have you been to Babe's in Roanoke?" Really worth the search to find it!

We loved the chicken. You get more food than you can eat. People wait hours to get into the restaurant. We stopped in and ordered and got our food in five minutes! The atmosphere is nice, but not worth waiting that long.

I had family in town and they had been to Babe's before and wanted to go back to have that great family style dinner. The amount of food would feed a family of 6 and there were only 4 of us, which left us with plenty to take home. The mashed potatoes were the best I ever had and the... More

We had friends visiting from Arkansas and, after a few nights dining at high end bistros around DFW, we decided on a casual dinner at Babes. We had a standard 20 minute wait for a table but that gave us enough time to tour "The Unique Dining Capital of Texas" to get an update on the local eateries. Once inside... More

Haven't been here in a couple of years. It was just like the first time. Great food served fast and smoking hot. They don't have many options. Only 2 to be exact but there is no need to worry. Chicken, homemade mash and gravy served with a veg and biscuit. They have found food nirvana.
