“It was ok ... not a one-of-a kind place in Granbury”
Reviewed September 6, 2009

I'll start off with the positive:

What is this place good for? If you are having a large party with kids or a variety of people then it is a good deal because it is served family style with some of the being unlimited.

If you are just going with a few people it isn't worth the cost. The food is pretty salty and fatty so if you're trying to keep from having another by-pass surgery then I would avoid this place. It is "home cooking" and the best thing is their chicken. If you want "home cooking" I would make everything else at home and just get the chicken.

The atmosphere is kinda country and neat with long table and mis-matched chairs, but it is very dark. Babe's is not one of a kind because they have another location in the DFW area.

Over all, it's ok, but I have no plans to go back.

“Ummmmmm good!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2009

Sandi, Susie and I eat at Babe's AT LEAST once a week regularly (sometimes more)and love it. Doesn't matter whether it is chicken fried steak, fried chicken, fried catfish, chicken fingers, baked chicken or pot roast. They have the BEST corn and mashed potatoes. The wait staff is awesome and have so much fun together dancing the Hokey Pokey and other routines. Babe's has been a great addition to Granbury
and is within walking distance of the Square

“Down home cooking that is AWESOME!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2009

Babe's never fails to deliver! This time we all had chicken strips and they were outstanding! The sides are served family style and the biscuits are excellent, the corn is outstanding, mashed potatos are yummy, and the green beans are excellent. Their simple iceburg lettuce salad goes perfectly with their style of cooking! Definitely go hungry - and come home full and with leftovers!

“Babes Chicken Dinner House- a great place for a great meal!!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2009

Delicious!!! We tried Babes Chicken Dinner House in Granbury, TX and LOVED IT!!! My husband and one of our guests had the baked chicken, which was so moist and flavorful...it was wonderful! My daugher loved the chicken fried steak and I had the chicken strips. Both were cooked just right and with just the right amount of breading. The chicken strips came with an unusual, but tasty jallepeno honey mustard dipping sauce that was wonderful! The side dishes were served family style and included; fresh baked biscuits with honey, salad, green beans and some of the best creamed corn I have ever eaten. It was a ton of food and of course, we had a take home bag afterwards, which tasted just as great the next day! I highly recommend Babes. Our waitress was so sweet and friendly. The atmosphere was casual, country and down home fun! A great place for a great meal!!
