My waistline can not afford to go here often. I can make a meal just on the mashed potatoes and cream gravy. In case you don’t know it you have two choices, fried chicken or chicken fried steak. You get 4 pieces of fried chicken....More

Babe's has a limited offering, however, the Chicken Fried Steak is fantastic. The restaurant serves family style, mashed salad, mashed potatoes, green beans. Service is alway great. Get there early or wait outside in a long line.

The original Babe’s is awesome. Great speedy service and they can move the people through. Even so, expect long wait if you go at peak time or special occasion dates. Will keep coming back for more!!!

Babes is a staple in anyone’s diet who likes chicken. The chicken is fried perfectly and the vegetables are wonderful. It is the place to eat great fried chicken.

At Babes, you get two choices for entree... fried chicken or chicken fried steak. We had the fried chicken, and we were not disappointed. Crisp and breaded perfectly. One half chicken per person! The sides are served family style and are included in the price....More

I no longer make my own fried chicken, because Babe's is as good or better. There mashed potatoes and gravy are amazing as is their corn and I love the dressing on the salad.

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.
