This place has the best fried chicken around which explains the large and long lines. It's well worth the wait. Take the family or go with your honey. Sides are yummy and the chicken is exceptional.

Place is very noisey,food comes family style and you have NO CHOICE. I do NOT like dark chicken meat so it was limited for me. Had better chicken dinners at home.

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.
