Description: 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.

“Prepare to wait but well worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We love the fried chicken and fixin's here. There is always a wait because it is the best. My only complaint is the lighting is pretty bad. We can't take our visually impaired family member here because it is too dark!

“We tried it again, cause it sounds great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes and gravey... sounds great, huh?? We gave it another try after coming away totally dissatisfied the previous time we tried it and swearing we would not go back. Both the chicken and steak were literally dripping grease or oil. The steak is so full of gristle that you can hardly chew it. The highlight of the meal is the iceburg lettuce (only) salad and the biscuits. They do provide quantity, if you are really hungry and can tolerate the chicken or steak. The corn has good flavor, the mashed potatoes and gravy are not bad. We did have the sweetest little waitress... she was a gem. This place packs them in, so it does hold a certain fascination for some folks, just is not our cup of tea. We will not be returning.

“I don't get it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The food is bland. Tried it twice and it doesn't get any better. Chicken fried steak was tough and nothing special. Side dishes aren't great. It's not that good. Don't know what the hype is about.

“Best Chicken Fried Steak ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

You get your choice...fried chicken or chicken fried steak. Both are AWESOME! Served with family style salad, mashed potatoes, gravy, cream corn, and biscuits. Take-out is just as good!
