Babe’s Chicken Dinner House

Looking for a DFW institution that is serving up great eats and a family experience? Then you need to take a trip to Babe’s Chicken Dinner House. We decided to visit this hot spot in downtown Arlington after hearing such great reviews from family and friends.

The moment you walk into the restaurant, you are transported back in time. With their old town decor and mood lighting it felt like we on the set of a movie. The decor of mix matched chairs and cozy atmosphere felt like we were heading to grandma’s for Sunday supper. We felt right at home the moment our friendly waitress came to greet us and explained their no-menu concept.

Instead of pouring through multiple items, you get a choice of six different main options and a selection of sides that are served up family style. After taking a few moments to decide on what we wanted, we placed our drink order and waited only a few minutes before the start of our lunch service.

To start off the meal, we enjoyed hot flakey biscuits that tasted great with butter and honey. The biscuits are made fresh daily and you could tell there was a lot of love poured into them. We also received their mixed salad that had a tangy vinaigrette that’s also made in house. It was a great light dish to eat with the biscuits.

Moments later, the feast was served! We decided on fried chicken and catfish that was piled high on our plates and tasted crispy and warm. We loved how fresh everything was and couldn’t decide on which side we enjoyed more. From creamy corn to warm mash potatoes and gravy, it we really felt a southern comfort meal.

We were truly stuffed by the time we left and felt we had our fill of great eats. We can’t wait to come back soon and dive into this unique spot.
