    MetroplexJim-
     
    I am taking the family to a Cowboys game Oct 28. None of us have seen the new stadium. Haven't been to Babe's either. It been on my short list for quite awhile after you have talked it up over the years.
     
    Do you have a favorite location for Babe's? Not sure I will go to the original unless you say so.
     
    Thanks Johnny McClanahan

        Off topic a bit. I've got a Popeye's less than a mile from my house. 
        I'm there and back home in less than 10 minutes with some great spicy fried chicken for less than $8.00 bucks! Love it! Btw, the spicy has a lower sodium count than the regular fried.

          We eat at the Babe's Chicken Dinner House in Burleson on a regular basis. It is wonderful. It is a family style restaurant in that you choose an entree and then the salad, biscuits and vegetables are served family style,and are all you can eat. The entrees include 1/2 fried chicken, a VERY large chicken fried steak with cream gravy, fork tender pot roast with brown gravy, 1/2 roasted chicken, 1/2 smoked chicken, or a platter full of fried catfish fillets. Each entree is about $10.00 a plate but two or three people could share an entree, and then you still have all the veggies, etc. The vegetables are fresh, homemade cream corn, green beans, and homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. You can eat their light and fluffy biscuits with butter, honey, molasses, or gravy. The salad is simple, just iceberg lettuce but it is so fresh, served ice cold with a delisious sweet/sour dressing.
          As you can tell, I love the place. The waitresses are friendly and when the hokey pokey comes on, they line up in the middle of the room and dance, along with any customers who want to.
          You will probably have to wait unless you go early on a weeknight. I highly recommend going, you won't regret it and you will be very full when you leave!

           
          Oh man, I'd go to Dallas just for Babe's! 
           

           
          (Are there actually any other reasons to go to Dallas?)

            and really it's no worse than the places that sing Happy Birthday.

             
            Another practice I despise with every fiber of my being.
             
              
             
             Even at Hooter's?

                Yes, Babe's now has a restaurant in Arlington: http://www.babeschicken.com/our-kitchens/arlington/ .
                 
                We've been to Babe's in Carrollton, Garland, and Frisco and our experiences and the food has been uniformly excellent.  So, I'd try their Arlington location near Cowboys' Stadium without hesitation.

                    No. 
                     
                    And, why ruin a perfectly good memory of 34 years ago?

                      Anytime we go visit our son in Hurst we take a trip to Babes in Roanoke.  They are GREAT!

                        Twinwillow-We didn't make it to the Roanoke Babe's this trip. Maybe next time and there will be a next time Babe's was awesome!
                         
                        MetroplexJim- Five of us went to the Carrollton Babe's. We enjoyed this location just off the historic town square. Great fried chicken and fantastic side dishes! Thanks for the tip.
