Babe's never disappoints. The smoked chicken is wonderful. All veggies are served family style. Salad is always served with house dressing. Mashed potatoes and corn are daily favorites. Other veggies are determined on a daily basis. All veggies are "bottomless." However, Babe's does not allow guests to take leftover veggies home. All entrees may be taken home. Homemade biscuts are... More

Family style dinner with all the best sides dishes. Babes was on Food Network for the best fried chicken and it does not disappoint! The mash potatoes and freshly made biscuits will melt in your mouth.

You can't go wrong with anything here. All great country cooking including green beans with bacon and creamed corn. Smoked chicken is my all time and the sides are unlimited served family style

Babe's was talked up by our adult children who live in TX, so we decided to pay a visit. We ordered the Catfish, Chick/Fried Steak and Ribs. I had the ribs and they were very good, tender and off the bone. Fish looked good and they said it tasted good. Steak was a bit on the tough side. The sides... More

There is ALWAYS a wait when you go to Babe's in Garland. Don't give up! Well worth the wait! Family style servings of veggies. Just decide what meat you want. You can take any left over meat home. Not real crazy about the salad, but everything else is wonderful! The desserts are good too..... usually too stuffed to eat those!

A trip to the area isn't complete without a family gathering at Babe's. It's a comfortable place for families with homestyle cooking served family style. Each of us has our favorite main course and we've never had a bad meal there. The staff is friendly and accommodating, keeping both drinks and vegetable bowls full. The biscuits are served warm; the... More

Traveling with little ones we needed a place where the kids could be kids and not have to worry if they were talking too loud or not sitting still. The food was good old country food. Not for those on a diet. We got fried chicken and catfish and couldn't finish it all. We could have taken left overs but... More

We visit Babes often and enjoy the quality of food, atmosphere, and concept. Family style service works well. The chicken strip dinner will serve 2-3 people. They allow sharing entre with small up charge which we don't mind as all sides are included.

My wife, our daughter, and I enjoyed lunch at Babe's and shared three of their offerings. I had the fried chicken which was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside; perfectly fried and delicious. My wife had the smoked chicken which was equally delicious, having a crisp skin and delightfully moist and smokey meat. The chicken fried steak,... More

Babe's is always a treat. It's like a holiday meal with the relatives. Delicious food (and plenty of it!), noisy guests, delightful servers, entertainment (if you're lucky!). and lots of familiar satisfaction. Go for the chicken; stay for the incredible veggies and homey desserts. There's catfish, ribs, and chicken-fried steak too.
