The reviews don’t lie.Excellent fried chicken, the sides are delicious, the service excellent.
My first time visiting Babes chicken.Besides the 35-45 min wait, the smoked chickendefinitely made up for it!!! Unlimited sides at noadditional cost was a plus. The added bonus for me was my waitress Emily, she was great! I remember Emily greeting me & stating she had been there sense 11am & how they were short staffed, i arrived around 7pm on a Sunday. I could tell she had a VERY BUSY day but she stayed with a smile on her face & never showed not one sign of frustration, and for that she wasrewarded very well in the end of my visit. I HIGHLY recommend Babes chicken “simply the best, better than all the rest” The smoked chicken was darn delicious!!!! Thanks Babes
Was very disappointed paying so much for so little. I feel our server was very discriminating towards us. we watched other servers treat their tables much better. she brought 1 tiny bowl of each item for our party. some didn't even get anything and the 3 that did it wasn't even a spoon full. we asked for more and she got upset and took forever to bring another bowl. They say it is unlimited vegetables but that wasn't true for our table we paid bill then left. If i go back it won't be Arlington location. what little we were able to get was very good.
Everything was delicious and the service was amazing!!! As you can see it was delicious we ate it all
Best chicken in Texas. The fried catfish was also amazing. The sides were awesome. You have to try this place. Staff and waitress were so friendly. I felt like I was at home. The banana pudding pie was out of this world.
Good food, nice, friendly, cozy atmosphere, great place to hang out with friends and family.
Chicken tenders were cooked good and Catfish, but both didn't have no flavor. My cousin loves there tender and she loves the dipping sauce( honey mustard) so she doesn't know the tender has no flavor lol.. I was then able to try the roasted Chicken, they were so nice to let me try, now the roasted Chicken had flavor. I do think they over cook there strings beans, but they do taste good, the sweet corn was good, but I wished it had a fresh off the cob texture.. today I want to try their homemade vanilla pudding, I am hoping it is not the instant jello pudding box..... and my server was really nice, I really enjoyed her, everyone was so wonderful. I am wanting to go back and try their Chicken Fried Steak
The food is average at best. What I really can't stand is the manager standing in the corner, leering at his young waitresses singing & dancing. Most of the girls look uncomfortable and looking around the room, watching the men in the audience makes it even worse. Why is this even a thing? I might go back if they stop the girl show.
You MUST eat here! Food is like Grandma used to make.. Serving sizes are HUGE! Sides served family style. Gluten free Hickory smoke option too! And the Chocolate Meringue Pie!!!???Old American style decor with a toy train to entertain! Our server Rocked! Everyone was very friendly. It felt like we were among family. Thank you! ? ? ? ? ?
They were able to please my mom and that takes initiative itself. Lol. Great customer service and bathrooms are clean. Minus one star because my mom Is a senior citizen and cannot finish her food and only wants to take back the rest of her meal and they don’t have to-go boxes. C’mon Babes, let’s make accommodations for our elderly by allowing them to bring out the rest of their meals. I understand the general public but not senior citizens. She paid $20 for her meal in which she couldn’t eat it all. Going forward let’s accommodate our senior citizens in this manner.
Unfortunately they gave us the wrong to go order, gave us less than what we ordered, but one call and manager made it right (thank you, Sir!)We were too tired to head back out to get replacement, ended up with fried chicken dinner and chicken strips dinner, everything was hot, flavorful, delicious. Gravy was on point. Green beans and corn were tasty. Chicken was crispy and fell off the bone. Will definitely go back. Looking forward to try the desserts!
It was delicious. Had the chicken fried steak, along with the vegetables they put on the table for you. The corn was good and so were the green beans.
Wendy was our server and so amazing! We never had to ask for a drink refill. The food was delicious and I LOVE the atmosphere at this location!
Babe's is a must have for anyone from out of town that has never been here. Home cooking at it's finest along with all the good stuff to cook it with....grease, gravy and butter! You choose 1 meat from a list of 5 options, fried chicken, chicken tenders, smoked chicken, chicken fried steak and fried catfish. It also comes with unlimited family style sides (corn, green beans and mashed potatoes) salad and biscuits! Make sure to wear you loose clothes because when you leave they will be tight. Sssooooo good!
A fun family style fired chicken dinner. You should be prepared to wait for a table when you arrive. The outdoor waiting area is quite large with seats in the shade. The fried chicken is very good. Not the best fried chicken you have ever had but quite enjoyable. The family style servings are like the large Amish-style restaurants in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
