I've been to this and other Babe's locations many times and it's definitely a staple for eating with large groups, families or just whenever comfort food hits the spot. This past weekend my brother came to visit who lives in another country and had never been to Dallas. We knew we had to take him to Babe's for some chicken and they did not disappoint. Our wait to be seated was about a half hour, but it was a holiday weekend and Babe's is a popular place so it's no surprise. Once we got inside we were greeted by our server, Morgan, who took the time to explain to my brother and another friend who hadn't been to Babe's before how things were done. She rattled off the different meat options, explained the side dishes, took our drink order and returned promptly with drinks and Babe's salad and fresh biscuits. Not long after our order arrived, which consisted of four orders of fried chicken and two orders of chicken tenders. The sides of corn, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans all arrived as well. Drinks were refilled and they even took a musical request from my daughter to play the Hokey Pokey so she could get up and dance with the waitresses. We had an early celebration of my brother's birthday and they had him wear the chicken hat and dance like a chicken while they sang happy birthday to him. We saved room for dessert and had some apple cobbler with ice cream to top off the night.

This restaurant is not for the diet or health conscious, but it is a very tasty and yummy place to eat.

If anyone told me they wanted to start a restaurant that had no menu, gave only 1 choice (entree meat), everyone eats the same sides and the salad is only lettuce with dressing, I'd say they were NUTS!
Babe's works!
Great family style food, relaxed casual atmosphere and DEFINITELY valued priced!
A wonderful place to take a family of all ages.
And....the salad is addicting!

Babes is not only the best chicken in Texas...it has good Texas hospitality to boot! Babes is an icon around here and a must visit establishment! They even serve a roasted chicken for those on a lighter diet! Be aware, this place is all about good southern comfort food. After church on Sunday morning chicken !

We picked this restaurant base on TripAdvisor reviews. Go hungry because there is plenty of food served family style. We split an order of fried chicken which after having salad and biscuits and all the sides was plenty of food. Our server was friendly and efficient. Quite a few people we celebrating birthdays and they put a chicken head and beak on the birthday person.

The name is right, the chicken dinner is awesome. They bring you salad and biscuits before you order. Order the chicken, comes with great southern sides (green beans, cream-style corn, and mashed potatoes with gravy), then sit back and eat till you're stuffed. Sorghum and honey are on the table to go with your biscuits when you're done with the chicken. Prices are more than reasonable.
