This is definitely a restaurant where less means more. Unlike most restaurants that overwhelm you with their choices and selections, Babes offers what they do best, Chicken and LOTS of it. In addition to Chicken they also serve country-fried steak and all meals come with mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits and creamed corn – but that is it. There is no lingering over the menu debating for 15 minuets about what to eat!
Bring a big appetite! They serve mountains of food family-style, a big platter in the middle of your table for all to share. Their biscuits are made from scratch on-site, along with the rest of their selection and you can totally tell! If you are coming on the weekend bring a cooler, you won’t be the only one. This is one of the few restaurants I have ever been to where people tail-gated prior to the meal. It is not unusual to see a group of people waiting for a table in the road tossing a football. After dinner it is nice to stroll around the shops of Oak Street Roanoke, or stop by Granny’s Cupboard for some pie – yummy! I am a former resident of Roanoke, and Babes is one of the places I miss the most.
