Real live comfort food. They have a very limited menu, but everything they make is out of this world. Their fried chicken and banana pudding are so Southern that I thought my Grandmother was alive and well and in their kitchen. Unbelievable.

Don't come if you want to count calories, because butter and cream are the main ingredients. My only complaint is that they don't have sweet tea only unsweetened. Now that is a Southerner's nightmare because sugar never dissolves well in ice cold tea.

My cousin and I tried Babe's a couple of years ago at the Roanoke location. Then we tried the Sanger location, then the Carrollton location. All Superb! We will typically order two entrees per person and try to finish both off while at the restaurant. I must be the only patron that can eat three bowls of mashed potatoes all by myself! But I was prepared and went to the restaurant hungry. My cousin ate every piece of her fried chicken AND her chicken fried steak. She had three bowls of the corn to herself as I do not care for corn. Between the both of us we ate a dozen biscuits. So I guess you could say we DID get our money's worth there. We discovered quite by accident that the salad dressing will double as a wonderful exfoliator for the face and neck. I just happened to take some home with me and had a date one evening and I thought to myself, why don't I try that salad dressing with the vinegar as an exfoliant. I have to say it worked much better than pricier exfoliants that I've purchased at department stores.

You cannot go wrong with Babe's they are absolutely the best at down home, southern cooking. In fact, we are visiting the Carrollton location tonight and I would imagine our bill will run the usual $180.00-200.00 range....but it's worth it. I love Babe's!!!!

Pros: Everything!!!

Cons: Nothing

There are things that I love about Babe's, and things that I don't. The fried and smoked chicken, both just fab, and I don't mean maybe. Love the family style serving in shared serve yourself bowls, and the potatoes and gravy are great. I also like the creamed corn, although it does have that canned tase. The chicken fried steak is okay, not terrific, but the roast beef looks so bad I won't try it. Haven't tried the tenders, but they look pretty good, too. The green beans are just okay, the salad dressing is, uh, unusual, but I like it. But, the biscuits have no flavor whatsoever and in my opinion are worthless carbs. The desserts are great (best pineapple upside down cake I've ever had, and the coconut cream pie is to die for). For the price, it's hard to beat Babe's -- $10 for a ton of good, Southern bad for you food. What I don't like is the hokey service, where the really young servers try to be down home and josh it up with you. There's something about that too familiar thing coming from a kid that irks me. Also, the song and dance routines that they engage in are just dumb. The seating can get crowded (make sure you go at off times, or you'll be sorry), but if you can manage a place on the side it's much more comfortable. All in all, it's good food and a great value.

Pros: Mostly terrific home cooking Southern food

Cons: Despise the "all too familiar with you" service from really young servers and the dance routines

I've been a fan of Babe's for years, but over the Christmas break I made an executive decision: Babe's is my new favorite restaurant. It is a great place with great food, and the atmosphere is perfect for bringing as many friends and family as you can. I have never ever had a bad experience at the Roanoke or this Babe's. If you visit Dallas - eat here! If you live in Dallas, and have never been... what's wrong with you???

Babe's is awesome! You just don't get tasty, home cookin' like this anywhere else. The corn is just like my grandmother use to make. Babe's is a family fun atmosphere. We LOVE Babe's!

Have done the Take-Out feature of Babe's a couple of times and love it! There's a separate entrance for take-out which is great because the restaurant is always packed! We order two meals for three of us and it's always plenty with enough left over to pack for lunch the next day! Food is wonderful - especially the corn, and the chicken fried steak! Service is quick - especially when you call ahead! We'll definitely use the take-out option again!

This place is known for their chicken but I must say the chicken fried steak is a good as you can find and as large as your whole plate. You will definitely be asking for a to-go box.

Babe's is the best fried chicken in the Metroplex. This Carrollton location is better than the original in Keller -- more meat items (chicken fried steak, fried chicken, chicken tenders, smoked chicken, fried catfish, pot roast) and desserts (banana pudding, coconut creme pie, peach cobbler, and more). Family style sides are served as if you were family, yum yum yum.

For around $14 per person, you order your meat and get all you can eat sides (mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, rolls). Chicken friend steak is as big as a plate and chicken tenders are about 8 to an order. Not low fat but definitely southern fav.

When I think of Texas I think Babe's, 'cause it's so darn finger lickin good. The fried chicken, mash potatoes, corn, biscuits, oh la la, its all about needing to visit your gym an extra hour the next day, but so worth it. If my arteries could handle it I would go every week, but seeing that I want to be around for my two girls Ill have to stick to a once every six month schedule.

Pros: Yummy finger lickin' good food.

Cons: The fear of a heart attack.

Great for families or big groups. Whenever we have more than 8 people on an outing, I recommend Babe's. The Carrollton location offers a couple more meat options than the original, so everyone can try something since its served family style. Its a great value - about $10 per person, and BYOB. Good fun atmosphere, although it can get loud and difficult to talk to the person across the table. You get a huge serving, plus all you can eat sides of veggies and rolls. Good fun.

Babe's was recommended to me by a bus driver, of all people. She gave me a flyer with their menu, and I knew my fried chicken craving dreams were soon to end. At least for now. Babe's looks like an old honky tonk, lots and lots of tables, mismatched chairs(if you don't like the one you are sitting on, go get a diff one from another table, like I did). Within minutes, literally, my husband and I had a big platter of fried chicken and chicken fried steak, and about 5 bowls of veggies and gravy and biscuits. I traded a leg for a good size piece of steak, and dug in. MMMM...the green beans tasted like they had been simmering for years with a big ole piece of fatback, the juice was so tasty i slopped it up with part of my biscuit. Creamed corn that was mostly corn, not that wimpy canned stuff that you have to search for a kernal or two. Mashed potatoes nice and stiff, just beggin for some of that peppered cream gravy. I saved my thigh piece(you get a half chicken fried up for $9.50 and all the veggies you can eat), because I really wanted more vegetables(even after sharing said veggies with quiet spouse on other side of table, he too enamored of the chicken fried steak to more than mumble until we had finished). Couldn't make it, was stuffed already. But I got a couple of extra biscuits to take home(they were huge and light and fluffy, how de do dat?) with my lonely piece of chicken. I just wasn't ready to finish my Babe's experience yet. Had to have some tomorrow...for you know, Tomorrow is...another day..:)

PROS: Food, hot fast delicious, service was attentive and polite
CONS: do I have to find one? Not enough room to eat more veggies?

I love this place because they always have consistent tasting food at a good price. This is truly some serious down home cooking. I highly recommend trying at least once.
