We ordered a huge family pack meal to go and we had several people with use that needed to be gluten free. When we got home we discovered that they put the biscuits in with the baked chicken (which was supposed to be gluten free). So definitely not Celiac friendly due to cross contamination.
— Not at all
Our daughter was just diagnosed celiac a few months ago & before her diagnosis, this was one of her favorite restaurants. We went back for the first time tonight & was pleasantly surprised that she could basically have everything except for the gravy & the biscuits. Granted, she couldn’t have chicken tenders like she used to, but she had the smoked chicken instead. She was so excited she could basically eat like she used to!
Most of their condiments contain gluten but they let us bring our own barbecue sauce for her. Also, their honey comes from a container that everyone has access to so we were worried about cross contamination but they have individual packets of honey in the back if you ask for it. We brought a gluten free piece of bread for her to have while the rest of us had a biscuit.

Very sensitive to gluten and had no reaction. Stay away from gravy and biscuits. Smoked chicken was delicious and so is the creamed corn and sweet tea!!
Amazing!! Everything but the fried chicken, the gravy, and the biscuits is GF!! Even the fried catfish is cornmeal based and fried in a dedicated fryer. Service was phenomenal! (Ask for Chase to be your waiter if you want someone who goes above and beyond!)
Great food! Staff was knowledgeable! Celiac Friendly
Awesome smoked chicken, mash potatoes that brought me to tears they were so good, and delish green beans. They have a chart of ingredients of all food. So good and feel great after eating there. Just FYI..Allergic to gluten, corn, peanuts and soy...
They really take good care of you. They don't have a menu but have an allergies chart that helps to guide your menu selections. The fried fish (fried in cornmeal) is amazing and I have no pains!
Always have had success at Babes.
Fired Catfish in a dedicated fryer
Some of the best eating out with Celiac you can have.
Emailed the manager and told we can have smoked chicken, fried catfish, corn, green beans, and salad. (That is all entrees except fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, and tarter sauce!) The fish was superb and family-style service fun!
For GF you can have Roasted Chicken or Fried Catfish, mashed potatoes, green beans and creamed corn.
For GF/DF you can have roasted chicken and green beans.
We had roast chicken with green beans, it was really good and neither one of us got sick. It was nice to be able to eat somewhere everyone else in our family wanted to go to.
— Separate gluten-free menu
— Not Much
Their catfish and smoked chicken is gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer for the catfish. All the veggies are gluten free except for the gravy, rolls and salad dressing. The manager is knowledgeable about gluten free. Some of the staff isn’t though. The manager is always willing and happy to help. One of my favorite places to eat.
