Babe's Bar-B-Que & Brewhouse Restaurant Review

: Flanked by gigantic brass swine and the aroma of roasting meat, Babe’s at The River at Rancho Mirage is easy to find. Founded by Don Callender of Marie Callender’s fame, the restaurant anchors the popular center’s west end and overlooks a man-made pond. We’re not big on themed dining experiences, but Babe’s pulls it off with its savory menu of pulled barbecue pork and chicken sandwiches, baby-back ribs, Texas-style tri-tip and other meaty favorites. Unlike other barbecue joints that rely heavily on sauces and rubs, Babe’s claims its secret is in the smoking process. Non-carnivores can graze on salads and pizzas. Don’t pass on dessert; after all, the founder comes from a pie-making pedigree, so the apple, blackberry and peach pies are worth every calorie.
