This is the 2nd Babe's of their group of family style dinner houses that I have visited. The building is a bit different inside and out but serves the same great home style food. There kitchen looked much cleaner that I and friends could have ever expected. I love the large chicken fried steak and special corn. Others in the... More

They have raised the prices again. This is just fried chicken and should not be almost $14.00 a plate. The food is great. The vegetable plate is $8.00 which is ridiculous.

Chicken is just chicken until you've tried Babe's. Seriously, I love good food but I always thought of chicken as a boring choice. And then someone recommended Babe's. We went, fell in love, and talked about it for the next 10 months until we came to Dallas again, and proceeded to plan our trip around another trip to Babe's. Yeah,... More

This place was very weird. The food was super greasy . The choices were limited. The atmosphere was nasty dark and smelly. I would not go back.

This place has been reviewed so many times it speaks for itself. I wanted to comment on the parking at this location. The lot is tiny, the spaces are narrow, and if you're driving a truck, it's nearly impossible. If no rain, park on the street or in the lot on the square. You'll save yourself some door dings and...

This place is always crowded so plan ahead. A little loud as the dining room is a huge space. A cute waitress will serenade you as you dive into a fried delight. Obviously the chicken is great but so is the catfish. The chicken fried steak is as big as your plate. All the sides are family style and all... More

Out of towner who visited Babe's for a business lunch. I was immediately faced with my most difficult decision; Chicken Fried Steak or the Fried Chicken. Both are legendary. I went with the fried chicken and was not disappointed. Other than the entree, everything is served family style. They start with hot biscuits right out of the oven -- delicious.... More

When I take friends and family to Babe's Chicken Dinner House, I always tell them that they have the best fried chicken in Dallas. And after we finish our meal, they always tell me that I was right. Lots of other reviewers (on TA and otherwise) seem to agree with me. Babe's has the formula down pat: lots of great... More

Babe's Chicken House was simply a joy to be a part of. The wait staff was great, the atmosphere was delightful, and the Fired Chicken and Chicken Steaks were a pleasure to your taste buds. Then they bring you home made biscuits, creamy corn, green beans, mashed potato's and gravy. One of the few times I wished I had a... More
