memade biscuits, soft and buttery, keep coming.

The food is served family style, and there is a lot of it. The chicken is hot, with a crunchy crust and tender flesh. The steak is tender, but not as outstanding as the chicken.

The fried corn? Sweet and creamy. The mash was smooth with a wonderful smokiness to the gravy. The green beans tasted just like my grandmother's.

There are plenty of desserts to choose from, but just dip those biscuits into the honey or sorghum syrup that accompanies the chicken for a sweet treat.

How do they do it?

Here's a secret: Babe's cooks told us that they make small batches of each different food at a time. This keeps the food fresh.

Another secret: The soak the chicken in salt-water about 24 hours. Then they refrigerate it before frying. Why? To make a crunchy crust.

Babe's "Menu Truths"
Menus always sound so perfect. But Babe's keeps it real, and provides a humorous printed key to menu descriptions:
Poultry = chickens or anything that looks a lot like a chicken
Imported = brought to us by a Mack Truck
Succulent Pieces = everything except the neck, feet and back
Marinate = soak
Secret Spices = salt water
Tenderness = it can be chewed
Healthier for you = at least that is what they say this year
Perfection = it's done!
