Went here with family in mid August. It's an interesting concept being a Brit who hadn't seen this style of dining before. You order one of four or five (ish) mains, steak or chicken mainly, fried in bread crumbs. There was one dish of grilled chicken I think.

I have eaten at 3 different locations and... More

I went to Babe's with my sisters and niece. The waitress was friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our food. The food was delicious and they give you a lot. I would recommend this restaurant.
