“Best of Kind”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

It is the best of it's kind because it's authentically local, truly tasty, it doesn't take a long time and it doesn't cost much. The atmosphere borders on being a tad too atmosphere-y for me - if you like kitschy, this is for you. That aside, the food is simple, bountiful, well-prepared, satisfying and can be had for a song - and sometimes they provide the song, too!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The waitresses will sing and dance for you. Environment reminds me of restaurants back home. Food is incredible! A must-see if you are visiting the DFW area

“Great family place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had dinner at Babe's with 2 children, aged 4 1/2 and 2 1/2. It's family style -- all the mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, rolls and salad you can eat. The fried chicken dinner is 4 pieces - breast, leg, thigh and wing -- more than plenty and delicious! My husband had the chicken fried steak, and said that was great as well. Babe's is casual, and noisy - great for young families. There's also staff 'hokey pokey' and singing. A fun place. Go earlier to avoid wait times.

“Texas classic - country fare!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is not a fine dining experience and doesn't even try to be. What you get is good, wholesome, traditional country cookin with all the trimmings. The wait staff is friendly and professional, constantly offering refills of food and beverages. Skip the salad which is merely iceberg lettuce with some type of awfully sweet dressing. The fried chicken & pot roast are outstanding along with the mashed potatoes, gravy and corn! Don't forget the biscuits which truly do melt in your mouth. Whenever I visit Texas, I visit one of the Babe's restaurants. To make things better, the prices are very reasonable -

Have been there several times food and service both excellent.service is super fast and fresh. It takes you back to your childhood and Sunday lunch with the family that your grandmother spent all day cooking!
