Loved the fried chicken! Fun decor too, my first time at Babe's and it felt like I walked into a restaurant at Disneyland. Fun theme inside. Food was really good.

Super yummy fried chicken with a fun assortment of sides! Ordering is easy as you only have to pick your protein. The fried chicken is crispy, crunchy, and juicy. It is very well seasoned but I wouldn't call it spicy or zesty. The chicken tenders are great too with a bit of a different flavor than the chicken pieces. The sides are all tasty but the biscuits stand out from the pack as the best. The atmosphere is fun and kitschy. The wait staff is very, very accommodating and deserves a raise for their performance.

Best fried chicken,roasted chicken, corn and salad. I would visit more then one time.

A bit of a wait, but well worth it! Generous portions of chicken, chicken fried steak, fish, or chicken tenders. The sides with green beans, corn, mashed potatoes, and biscuits was delicious! Good southern home cooking like grandma would make! Prices are reasonable.

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.

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.

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!
