“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

I was in town for business when a customer recommended Babe's for lunch. My expectations were somewhere between KFC and a small fried chicken shack. Oh my goodness was i wrong. The atmosphere was oldies themed, and it was like being in a small town in the 1950's. The surroundings made you feel nostalgic, and the service was very good. Now to the food. WOW! The veggies are family style and all you can eat...not to mention delicious and home cooked. I went twice and had the fried chicken once and the smoked chicked the next time...and it was top notch and prepared just right. All this for around $12!!! A memorable restaurant and experience.

“Family style restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

When we were there it was crazy busy. It's a good place to take your family since it's all served family style and the kids really dig in. The portions are huge so it's really easy to walk out "thanksgiving stuffed" from this place. Here's a place that seniors should share entrees.

“Country gem hidden away in Old Arlington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

Go here if you haven't been. Limited menu, but it doesn't matter. The few things they serve are great. We ordered two plates and shared. It was phenomenal. Plus the atmosphere is awesome.

“Simple but yummy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

So, this is not "healthy" joint, nor does it have any healthy offerings. I did not realize this, but played along and decided to indulge in small portion of southern fried goodness. You pick from a specified meat selection, most of which are fried. They bring it out with several sides (which are southern prepared veggies and starches). And they bring a ton of it too. I tried the fried chicken and chicken fried steak...and they were awesome! And dont leave without tasting their pie. Atmosphere is appropriate for the cuisine...very eclectic. And our waitress was terrific!
