This is one of my favorite places to eat. The amount of different dishes brought to your table is something else. The salad is lettuce only-but the dressing is wonderful. Creamed corn is so good and many other veggies. You have many choices of meat besides chicken. Ribs, meatloaf are both good as well. A happy group of workers who... More

A true Texana kind of place. The salad is all I can think about on my drive (approximately 30 minutes) every time we go. Have taken friends from New York and Florida and no one can agree on what is best, the chicken, the corn, the mashed potatoes or salad. I get hungry thinking about it.

This place has fried chicken just like my grandma used to make. I don't eat chicken fried steak, but my husband says it's the best. We also love the family style service.

Baby's is one of out favorite restaurants. Amazing home cooking! The chicken is awesome and the sides are just as good. A complete meal served family style. We live in Oklahoma and Babe's is a "must stop" destination every time we are in the Dallas area. The kids look forward to it as much as we do.

The best chicken fried steak dinner I've had in years. Be prepared for a steak that covers the plate that is perfectly breaded and covered with gravy. The portion was enough to share with my friend and I still took home a doggie bag. The waitress gave me two fresh rolls to add to the bag. The family style sides... More

We had the fried chicken but there were other selections as well. Excellent flavor with juicy meat. Well cooked. I did not experience the greasy chicken that another reviewer noted. Sides were typical for fried chicken being mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans which were exceptional with bacon added, biscuits. The service is family style. The 2 of us ordered... More

Babe's is legendary and their reputation is absolutely deserved. You order a meat and then veggies are brought family style. I've only had friend chicken and it is wonderful. Family members have selected quite a variety - every one raves about their food. Highly recommended
