“Southern Cooking”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you like the downhome southern cooking, you will enjoy this place. The food is good, but just not for the waist line. It is truly a family enviroment and a busy place.

“Great food---but not healthy”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

My daughter waited tables at Babe's when in high school 10 years ago and we ate there a lot!! The food is good but for the most part, not very healthy so if you're dieting, don't go. The roasted chicken is about the only thing halfway healthy. Biscuits are wonderful along with the gravy. You'll find yourself VERY thirsty as the evening wears on which I believe may be due to the amount of salt they use in the preparation of their sides. The floor could use a good scrubbing but never had an issue with the food or the service when going there. Still go occasionally
when I'm not worried about what I'm eating. On the week-ends, be prepared to wait awhile for a table. Doesn't serve alcohol but you can bring your own and they'll provide a cold mug.

“Great family style dinner”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Very casual atmosphere. Always very crowded so arrive early or be prepared to wait. Each person orders the type of meat they want then all the sides are served family style. All you can eat but you can only take the meat as leftovers. Great food, fun atmosphere and reasonable prices.
