I've been all over DFW attempting to find a "tender", tasty chicken fried steak. Found it in Roanoke @ Babe's!!! I guess it's easy to create great food when you ONLY offer two entrees: Fried chicken OR Chicken fried steak. That's it!! No menus necessary....More

Great down home atmosphere. Food is outstanding especially the Catfish dinner. Servers will do anything to make customers feel "at home".
