Babes is an institution and our children love it. I like healthier fare and smaller portions, a bit out of the ordinary, I know.

Food is served family style. All you can eat sides include salad, corn, biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy. Each person has the choice of fried chicken or chicken fried steak as the meat. Sides and drinks were refreshed often and food was yummy.

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.
