If you're looking for a quiet dinner, you'll probably want to go elsewhere. But if you're in the mood for good times and terrific southern cooking– then Babe's is the spot for you. Ranked one of the three best fried chicken restaurants in America by Southern Living magazine, this family owned mini-chain (with nine locations across the DFW area) is as famous for its crunchy, golden fried chicken as it is for the wait staff and customers who regularly break out into dances of the Hokey-Pokey. But be warned, you'll want to bring along an appetite, this place turns out a spread of down-home comforts like no other. Expect to find everything from fried chicken to hickory-smoked chicken, chicken-fried steak and fried catfish served up family-style with a slew of unlimited sides. And while the fried chicken is certainly phenomenal, the biscuits, which come with a side of honey and sorghum syrup, are almost worth a trip here on their own. Just be sure to save room for dessert: the homemade pies are legendary.
