Dallas Observer's Description

We figure there's something wrong with people who can't enjoy an occasional fried chicken dinner. Nonetheless, we feared we'd be wandering onto the documentary setpiece for America: The Obese at Babe's, a venerable family dining establishment exactly where you'd expect to find it, in a Garland strip shopping mall. We were wrong, sort of. Not everyone looked like they'd been feeding on fried chicken skin their entire lives, but all-you-can-eat places do tend to serve as magnets for the gluttonous. If we're going to overdo it, we thought, it might as well be with fried chicken and side dishes as tasty as these. Babe's serves up family-style dinners which include piles of super-crispy, thick-breaded monster chicken pieces, an iceberg lettuce salad (very fresh, with a sweet vinaigrette), tasty green beans, creamed corn (for those who can stand the sight of it), biscuits and excellent mashed potatoes. Everything, it seems, is doused in butter. Babe's has a few other things on the menu as well, including hickory-smoked chicken, pot roast, chicken-fried steak and fried catfish. Eat till you explode.

    Great chicken, I ordered catfish and it was really good, the side also very good. They make the best creamed corn I have ever eaten. If you can handle it or even take it home the chocolate pie is to die for. It's very casual and not too expensive. Let your hair down and enjoy yourself. They make you feel comfortable and feed you really well you wont leave hungry or broke.

    Green beans; tastes like straight from a can.
    Mashed potatoes boring but ok.
    Chicken fried steak fried well but no special seasoning or anything unique.
    I drove an hour to go eat at this restaurant and was then very disappointed. With such great reviews I expect something incredible and instead it was like a went to a rednecks house to eat. The chicken was fried well but no... More >>

    I liked the chicken... it's very juicy and crisp (if that makes sense... The thing that I liked was that they are very generous with their rations. I went there for a business lunch. I really don't know how much was paid as I wasn't the one paying ;), but the place doesn't look like it will bust your pocket. No reservations are required.
