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

: Founded by a seasoned restaurateur, the late Don Callender of Marie Callender’s fame, Babe’s is a popular gathering spot for those with a penchant for meat. Located at The River in Rancho Mirage, this carnivore haven welcomes guests with an enormous brass swine at its entrance and the aroma of savory meat and poultry. Babe’s doesn’t drown its meat in sauces or rubs; instead it smokes its subjects, resulting in tender pulled pork, smoky chicken sandwiches and savory Texas-style tri-tip. Pair your meal with one of the restaurant’s signature brewed beers. Vegetarians will find the salads and pizzas to their liking. Don’t pass on dessert; after all, the founder comes from a pie-making pedigree, so try the apple, blackberry and peach pies.
