Have you ever told your family what you’d do different if you opened a restaurant?  Well, that’s exactly why we opened Babe’s Chicken Dinner House. We wanted a sit-down restaurant where people really feel at home. Where your neighbors wait on you and your whole family.

Once again Babes has provided the finger lickin chicken they are known for. Stpped in for lunch and was throughly pleased with all the fixins. The waitress was delightful and the entertainment was foot stomping boot scooting boogie. This area has been revamped into a beautifully streeted up and coming city. Its always a delight to eat at Babes

So I was introduced to Babe's by one of my friends several years ago when I was in terrible need of a soul food fix. My friend said she had just the place. I was a little skeptical and surprised when she drove us to a small town chicken joint in the north Fort Worth suburb of Roanoke. However when... More

We have eaten at Babe's on several occasions. In fact it is always on our list to take out of town guests. Thus far Babe's has not disappointed. This is a very family friendly eatery with ample dinning area. However, the line can get long outside so go early to beat the crowd.

The best fried chicken I've ever had and I thought mine was pretty good. I loved it when the waitress said, "you want chicken or steak?" My husband asked, "Do we order anything else?" Nope, except our drinks. If you're anywhere near Roanoke, Texas, make sure you go to Babes!!!

Wow, great chicken. Comes out hot, tender and juicy just like grandma's. Had mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and some hot biscuits. Samantha is best waitress EVER. Always had our drinks full. Sweet young lady.

This restaurant only serves fried chicken and chicken fried steak. That was not a problem since I went there for the chicken. They do have great biscuits and sides at a reasonable price. Service was very good and everyone was friendly.

So the babes in Roanoke is the original one and it is a mix of chairs and tables but very home cooking food. All you can eat for the sides and 4 pieces of chicken. Great fired chicken. But the prices have gone up a lot for the fried chicken dinner

We've been visiting Babe's in Sanger for years, whenever we travel to Texas. We are drawn by the food, and even more so the down home environment. Today, on a trip from Forth Worth to Denton, we decided to hit up the Babe's in Roanoke. First of all, Roanoke is a little gem of a town. Babe's fit in perfectly.... More

We would never have known about Babe's were it not for a blessed soul on our flight to Dallas who told us this place was a must. After eating there tonight, we have to agree. Best fried chicken we have ever tasted, and the biscuits and sides are pretty dang good too. If you're in the area, make plans to... More
