I can honestly say I have never been to a restaurant like Babe's but I am in love with it. The best chicken I have ever tasted in a restaurant. Also all of their sides you get down to the salad was so delicious!!

There are no menu's, no prices and the offerings are quite small...but it's so much fun! They have 4 proteins to choose from and all come with set family style sides. We had the fried chicken, fried catfish and smoked chicken. Overall, I'd recommend the fried catfish (if you are ok with cornmeal batter) and the fried chicken (obviously). The... More

This is for the entire family. Several meats to choose. 3 locations, Cedar hill, Garland, Carrollton. I have dined at all 3 location, the service is great. And love their chocolate pie and the corn is totally awesome.

Pick your meat and your drink, they bring you salad, sides and biscuits to go with your choice. Portions are awesome. The taste of the food, I thought my grandmother was in the kitchen like when I was growing up. Can't wait to visit Texas again and hit Babes.

I wouldn't eat there often if I lived in the area, but thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Friendly staff, fun surroundings, and of course, amazing food!

My daughter is a student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, and she discovered Bubba's chicken her first semester. Located across the street from the University on Hillcrest, very handy to campus. I joined her on a visit to see what the fuss was about and OH MY GOODNESS!!! It is hands down the best fried chicken I have every... More

We both had chicken fried steak as our entree, and it was the best I'd ever had. The side dishes are served family style and refilled if needed. Everything was delicious, and we were so stuffed when we left. Will return.

Took a drive out from Addison off the back of the reviews here and very glad I did. Best fried chicken I've had and the sides are a lot more interesting than you might expect. Pretty cheap too, I'm no lightweight when it comes to putting food away and I left stuffed with my wallet only about $15 lighter including... More

The best chicken I have ever had. Busy place with great atmosphere. The one we went to said Bubbas on the sign which was confusing.
