“Great Food and Family Dinner”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We took some friends visiting from Chicago to Babe's to give them something local to eat. Babe's did that very well. It is very casual and relaxed so it was great for us and our small kiddos. It was a bit loud so be prepared for that.

The staff was great along with the down-home style dinner.

“This place is problematic for me”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

the service is not consistant. Some time good, some times horrible. Some of the wait staff really bust their butts, but not many. And maybe the most annoying, the "greeters" or whatever you want to call them. Meeting you outside in the courtyard "how many." "Through the door". Not opening it for guest or anything.

The food is good, not great. The sides taste familiar, like banquet or some other frozen dinner. The desserts are good. Fairly expensive for what it is.

VERY LOUD!!! An old trick used to turn tables, most places have done away with it because people did not return since they couldn't visit.

Its worth checking out, but not raving about.

“Yummy”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This place is amazing. Your experience begins with the wait staff reciting the few dishes on their menu. I tried them all. All are very delivious but among my favorite ones are catfish and pot roast. Every hour you will glance at wait staff dancing country music and sometimes you are invited to join them. Desserts are homemade pies. All you can eat side orders and biscuits. I love this place!

“Go to Babe's”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Hungry? They have fried and smoked chicken, chicken fried steak, chicken strips and fried catfish. Everything is served family style. The food and vegetables are brought out on platters for everyone to share. Mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, and biscuits. Everything is to die for. YOU MUST GO!!!! Everytime we go to Frisco, we have to eat at Babe's. You'll love it... I promise.

“We eat here everytime we visit our children”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Once again we had a fantastic meal. This Babe's has more menu options than some in the DFW area. We had fried, smoked and chicken strips. All were cooked to our liking. The mashed potatoes are good without adding anything but gravy just elevates them to a new level. The meal also comes with melt in your mouth biscuits and honey is on the table. The banana pudding is a little too sweet for me but would be great for most people.
