Babes is great looking. It's located on the end of the river complex. When you enter you are greeted by three large bronze sows. The building is accented with light stone and is very inviting.
The inside is a little dark and I like the patio best, with misters in the day and a fire pit in the evening. The wicker furniture is great.
The wait staff all wears cowboy hats and jeans. It's a little corny for my taste. However the staff is friendly and they know their menu and bar selections. The big gimmick here are martinis and they have a lot of them! They also have a great variety of beers.
The menu is good. It tries to be Southern but comes up short. Chris is from the South and gave his thumbs down to the cornbread and the BBQ sauce, which is way too sweet for a Southern boy.
We did enjoy the buffalo wings and I found them the way I liked them, not too greasy. My steak was good and cooked the way I ordered it.
We did find the prices a bit on the high side. My steak was $26.00 and the chicken breast Chris had was $18.00.
The food was good here, but not outstanding. Most of the time the heavy meat dishes would not draw me when I am here in the desert. My suggestion would be this would be a great place to come for wings and a beer and sit by the open fire. It's great to look at and has a friendly staff, but for the price I can direct you to a lot better food in the desert!
