Description: Have you ever told your family what you’d do different if you opened a restaurant?  Well, that’s exactly why we opened Babe’s Chicken Dinner House. We wanted a sit-down restaurant where people really feel at home. Where your neighbors wait on you and your whole family.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Whenever we go here, we always eat until we are practically about to BUST. The food is soooo delicious it feels like a sin to leave so much behind. Even then we still end up not finishing it all. The fried chicken is awesome - but my FAVORITE is the smoked chicken. I thought their fried chicken was of a different realm...and I fell into the "can't eat ANYTHING else off the menu here except this one thing because it's just so darn good" - until I finally veered off hesitantly one time. Holy Moly!!!

“Always a must when i visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is a great place for some great fried chicken or chicken fried steak. For that matter thats all they have on the menu. Pretty simple really, those two meats with two sides. Everytime i go to keller Tx to visit family, Babes is always on the list. You can place an order and take out or you can dine in. Expect a wait to be seated if you decide to stay, your food will arrive quick however. It is located in the old section of Roanke so that makes the atmosphere petty cool.

“Best Chicken Around!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Our out-of-town guests always ask to eat at Babe's. We love everything about it. The chicken is always plump, hot and tasty. The family-style sides taste as good as grandma's. The chicken fried steak is huge and cooked just right. Great at any location!

“Loved it! Fantastic fried chicken and biscuits!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our friends who live in this area took us to Babe's, what a treat! Great family style chicken dinner, with delicious biscuits and honey, salad, corn etc. The concept of having only two entrees to chose from for the family style dinner was novel. We loved the fried chicken, it would be nice to live close enough to try the chicken fried steak! It is all you can eat so they keep bringing food out as you want it. Our servers were personable, helpful and fun. Loved it!!!!
