Babe’s Chicken in Arlington, Texas is such a Great Family Fun Place with Delicious Food! It is not only the atmosphere that people love. It is the food, especially the fried chicken.
The inside of the restaurant is built like a town with chicken all over the roofs of the stores. This restaurant reminded me of one of my favorite restaurants in Branson, MO because the wait staff sing with a microphone while walking around the restaurant. The wait staff at Babe’s engage the audience even more while leading songs for everyone to join in. A lot of people actually get up and follow along to YMCA, the Hokey Pokey and more.
You choose your meat item from fried chicken, fried chicken strips, fried catfish, chicken fried steak, or smoked chicken. You do not choose the vegetables. They just bring them to the table. The vegetables and buttermilk biscuits are FANTASTIC! They are also all you can eat! All the food is served family style in large bowls to pass around the table. I love restaurants that serve food family style. My blog is all about spending more time with your family around the table. To me, there is no better way to do this than putting all the food on the table and passing it around. No one needs to get up and go to any buffet. Family style is more relaxed and allowed us to communicate better. Although my only negative to Babe’s was it is a little loud in the restaurant, BUT it is a party atmosphere and everyone has a great time. I even saw an elderly lady throwing her hands up and doing the YMCA. I loved watching her. She was having a great time.
While eating we watched Babe’s celebrate two guest birthdays. The guest had to wear a chicken on their head and bite a plastic cup so it would cover their nose. The cup represented a chicken’s beak. The guest did a chicken dance while everyone in the restaurant sang the Happy Birthday song. It was hilarious!!
Back to the chicken, you know I love fried chicken. If fried chicken is on the menu, I am ordering it. I compare fried chicken to two of my favorite places that serve it. These places include AQ Chicken House in Arkansas and LAMBERT’s in Foley, Alabama and Ozark, Missouri. The chicken at AQ is pan-fried in a cast iron skillet and has a lemon seasoning that is fantastic. The chicken at Lambert’s is crunchy and extremely juicy. The chicken at Babe’s in Dallas was extremely good as well. It had some of the best crust I have ever had. After biting into a piece of Babe’s fried chicken, you will remember the crunchy crust. You cannot underestimate the vegetables. They were all some of the BEST country vegetables I have ever had. The vegetables include green beans, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, and fried corn. The Buttermilk Biscuits were Amazing! Babe’s even has honey on the table, which is my favorite thing on biscuits and fried chicken. The sweet and salty of the honey on the fried chicken is amazing!
