We're visiting Georgia for a few days and wanted barbecue; everyone in the area recommended Babe's. Not much to look at, they said, but the food is awesome. I agree with that assessment: it's some of the best barbecue we've had. The sides are delicious too: we tried the macaroni and cheese, the baked beans, and the Brunswick stew; all... More

Lots of hype, but we will not be back. It looks promising from the outside when you see the stacks of wood waiting to cook what you think is going to be real southern BBQ. The inside is dark and felt like a bar, rather than a restaurant. There were two men there who barely looked our way as we... More

The reviews don't lie. Babe's has some of the best BBQ I've ever had in my life, let alone in Savannah. You can smell the hickory as you pull into the parking lot and know you're making a fantasic choice. I highly recommend the Redneck Reuben. This brisket was on it was perfection--melt in your mouth soft. Get it on... More

We happened across this BBQ joint after getting turned around--it was a very happy accident: I don't lightly say that this could be the best BBQ I've ever had in my life. Staff are friendly, portions are generous, and prices are reasonable. We both dined in and got orders to go in our four day trip to Savannah. We actually... More

I have been in this area for a few years and guests last week were saying they wanted BBQ. My hairdresser had just bragged on the entire menu from Babes so I shared with my guests. I started thinking about it and went to check it out for myself! A storm broke out and winds were blowing but I trekked... More

It may not be much on decor, but they certainly make up for it in the pallet. Some of the Best BBQ (and sides ( especially the collards) I have had anywhere. I go there every visit to Savannah and have never been disappointed.

This was quite a treat, a Lil hole in the wall with some of the best chopped pork I have ever had. Seasoned and sauced just right. Great find where the locals hang out! Alot of meat for a little price!

This place was recommended to us from a local and we are glad he did. We had great brisket and chopped pork. I also tried the Redneck Ravioli which I thought was good but not all agreed. This is mac and cheese with Brunswick stew on top. Both I believe would be good separate.

I had the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and it was delicious. I have ate at other places in town and this is one of my favorites. I would definitely recommend you try it out.

I rarely eat BBQ because growing up with Texas BBQ spoiled me. But finally enjoyed some great BBQ at Babes. Wish I wasn't just passing through town as I would enjoy having this restaurant as a regular stop. I would change just one thing and order sauce on side not on the BBQ. Enjoyed it very much
