I love the consistency of Babe's. The food will always be delicious. I am partial to the chicken strips because of the moist white meat and crispy batter. The honey mustard has some kind of pepper (jalapeno? green pepper?) that keeps it from being totally sweet but perfect dip for the chicken strips. Mashed potatoes, corn, rolls, green beans -...

We have been here on several occasions. Love to read all of the cute sayings on the walls and the waitstaff sings, which always brings a smile to my face. We first started going to the one in Carrollton, on the square. But now we live in Garland and was pleasantly surprised to find another very close to home. The... More

When this place opened, they had one thing on the menu: fried chicken. Now they have hickory smoked chicken, ribs, catfish, pot roast and chicken fried steak. I have tried them all and while all selections are good, the fried chicken remains my favorite. It has a crisp batter, is seasoned well and is juicy inside. The meals are served... More

Met some friends for lunch at the Frisco location. We had fried and smoked chicken with all the sides. All the fresh veggies and potatoes you can eat! Smoked chicken was great but fried chicken had a bit too much batter. Nice young lady made sure we had everything we needed. Location has a very interesting outside with old farm... More

Killer atmosphere. Laid back, country. Always has really great food. Family style sides. Cannot beat their chicken anywhere. Wait staff is always awesome and funny and take really good care of us. We eat here every chance we get.

We have a place similar in Nashville that is family style farm to table called Monell's but I had never been to a Babe's Chicken Dinner House before now. We had a large group during a business trip this past August. I had the roasted chicken which was similar to rotisierrie chicken. With the sides such as fluffy mashed potatoes,... More

This is the best home cooking you'll find anywhere except grandma's house! They have a terrific family atmosphere and a family attitude as well. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is one of the cleanest I've ever seen. (yep, I got to see the kitchen.)
