Dallas Observer's Description

The small menu here reflects the predominantly fried All-Stars of Texan and Southern cuisine. There's fried chicken and chicken-fried steak, natch. There's fried catfish and pot roast. There's fried chicken tenders and smoked chicken. That's the entire selection of main dishes at Babe's Chicken Dinner House. No joke. And that's a relief to see in a market chock-full of Southern/soul food shops slinging what seems like infinite permutations on the fried. The selection of side dishes (gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet corn and green beans) and desserts (pineapple upside-down cake) is similarly tiny. But what's not tiny? The portions. They're served in true down-home style, with helpings as large as the elastic-waistband pants needed to eat at Paul Vinyard's 11,000 square-foot homage to poultry.

    eat here, but don't plan to eat much for the rest of the day > best fried chicken you've ever had!!

    Some of the city's finest fried chicken is served up family-style (meaning, you can eat as much as your stomach will hold) alongside sides like mashed potatoes, corn and salad. [Eater 38 Member]

    You can't go wrong either option...warning its all fried so leave your diet at home!

    The chicken here is the best you'll ever eat, but don't get bogged down with the bird. My family goes to eat the sides, you can always take the chicken and biscuits home with you.

    Tough call, both steak and chicken are just great. No dessert though, go next door for that, best in town.
