Some homeless people recommended this place so we gave it a try. It is obviously popular as indicated by the long lineup. The menu is simple two choices only: fried chicken and chicken fried steak. We split the chicken it came with salad, corn, and mashed potatoes. It was all delicious.

Babes is one of those eateries you have to try once. I've eaten at babes in Carrollton and Arlington both of which I enjoyed. Roanoke location does not serve Catfish or Chicken Tenders nor do they serve green beans like the other locations. Take note of these exclusions if deciding to eat here.

How can you beat fried chicken and all the sides. Salad is simple, but it works! Chicken is juicy and crunchy. Chicken fried steak is thinly breaded and great crunchy crust just like the fried chicken. Mashed potatoes are smooth and creamy. Biscuits with honey is perfect for dessert. Gravy is perfect and not floury tasting at all. The best... More

We have probably eaten at Babe's CDH in Roanoak 20 times and it never disappoints! The staff is always inviting, friendly and attentive! The chicken fried steak and bone in fried chicken are amazing. The salad and the sides of mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed corn, and biscuits are all a perfect compliment to the meal.

Family styled service. Choose your meat - chicken, chicken tenders, and chicken fried steak and have un-endless sides. BYOB A fun family place to eat. Great service and enjoy the chicken dance as well.

Not much of a variety at this location. However, what they do have, they have perfected it! The chicken is amazing and sweet corn reminds you of home. Great place for families.

You sit down and have 2 options: fried chicken or chicken fried steak. As you wait for your meat, your waitress will bring you biscuits (delicious), salad, mashed potatoes, green beans (not so good), and creamed corn. I've never had dessert because I'm too full. Be prepared for a food coma afterwards!

Seriously. Go here. Please, do it. Go hungry. Prepare to eat a lot of amazing food. The chicken fried steak & fried chicken are both delicious so whichever you choose will leave you satisfied.

The line out the door to get in should tell you how good this place is. There's always a wait to get in. The food is amazing! They also have take out if you can't get in. It's not a very large place.

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.
