Limited menu (family-style servings), crowded and loud atmosphere, mediocre service, lousy salad, and fried chicken which was fine but not amazing. You can do better elsewhere.

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.
