“Did not disappoint!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This was seriously the best fried chicken I have ever had. We don't eat fried food that often and usually pick off the skin, but this was delicious just the way it came. Perfectly cooked. The kids gobbled their dinners right up. Yummy!

“Fried Chicken Anyone?? YES!!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Went on a Saturday evening. The atmosphere was great. The place was packed. We were told 45 minute wait. We thought that was generous since it was packed. True to word -- less than 45 minutes. Alcohol is not served here but did see people bringing in from outside. No worries as you do not want anything to dull your tastebuds. A 4 piece chicken meal and two chicken fried steaks plus ALL THE SIDES -- SALAD, GREEN BEANS, MASHED POTATOES, CREAMED CORN, AND HOMEMADE BISCUITS LATER!! We left completely satisfied with the food and the price. Would recommend to anyone that loves fried chicken.

“home cooking like mom wishes she could cook.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I've had Home Cooking and diner food coast to coast and border to border. NOthing is better than Babes for consistent Southern Delicacies. it may be chicken and catfish and chicken fried steak, but it's delicately prepared by chefs who take their Art very seriously. Based on family recipes, this is food that so good it's almost impossible to name your favorite...it is All that good.

Last time we ate at the Carrollton Babe's, we both ordered the catfish, incredibly well seasoned and perfectly prepared. the veggies are incredible, served family style, all you can eat. mashed potatoes and gravy, grilled green beans and sweet cream corn that they could make a pie out of. but then you might not want to order their pie. and That would be a shame.

trust me. Dallas is known for its restaurants and Babe's is one of the Best.

“Great food for a great price!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Come hungry. This is not a restaurant that allows for meal sharing. Although their specialty is chicken, depending on the location you go to (there are several), there are other options. Each person gets salad and rolls with their meal, and then the "sides" are unlimited and served family-style. If you have guests, this is a fun place to go. In many instances, there is a wait, so be prepared, but the wait is worth it!

“Great fried chicken”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I'd been to one of the other restaurants previously.....so knew what to expect. Great fried chicken, a mountain of sides and friendly service, this restaurant was no exception.
We both chose the chicken tenders, which are served beautifully crisp and hot but not at all greasy. There are other steak, chicken and fish options available. Sides were very tasty and unlimited portions. I particularly enjoyed the mash and the creamed corn, however you do also get biscuits, gravy, greens and beans. It's definitely a place to arrive hungry!
Service was very friendly and the atmosphere is extremely relaxed. 2 meals with 2 soft drinks came to $27, which is reasonable considering the portion sizes. Would happily go back.
