Smoked chicken, fried chicken mashed potatoes, it's always delish! One of our favorite places to go but it very busy so go during off peak hours.

Planned a vacation from New York to Texas, after reading about Babe's, made sure we did not go back to NY without trying Babe's Chicken, the best fried chicken by far that I've ever tasted. Service was excellent.

I always get the chicken dinner for one and take it home and share it with my boyfriend. This place is pretty darn good.

Babes is a family style chicken place with great food at reasonable prices. Everyone should try it at least once

The meat (chicken and fish) was delicious. The side dishes too bland for my taste. The dessert was mediocre, my friend tried two different desserts and she didn't like either.

This is a great family restaurant with a pleasing menu for all ages. The food is consistently good but rich in butter with a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend it.

We wanted a sit-down restaurant where people really feel at home. Where your neighbors wait on you and your whole family.
