Born and raised in the Bay Area and Babes is the best Pizza joint by far. The double decker and greek salad is the meal to write home about. Have a beer and watch the train roll by over heads. Eat and you will understand.
I just had Babes Pizza for the first time last night. It was soooooo good. The sauce was seasoned to perfection and the crust was just the right thickness for me. I would recommend Babes Pizza to anyone!!
Can't wait to go back!
I've lived in the Brandon area since 1979, and also lived in upstate NY for a few years, not too far from NYC. This is NOT NYC style pizza. It's not Chicago style pizza. It's different. The thin, crispy crust won't appeal to everyone. And it works best in the Double Decker. One slice of a Babe's Double Decker weighs as much as half a pie at most places. I'm not kidding. They are extremely generous with the toppings.
Babe's s a Brandon institution. It's a small place, family owned & operated. The staff are friendly & courteous. But it can be a victim of its own success, as a take-out order on a weekend can be an hour's wait, and getting a table isn't much faster sometimes. (They don't deliver, so plan ahead, whichever route you choose)
But the fact that this tiny local shop has been packing us in so consistently for so many years (at least since 1980, maybe longer) has to speak to its ability to appeal to most people.
If long waits bother you, go in early (5pm open) on a weeknight. Order a Double Decker & don't hold back on the toppings. Get a Greek Salad & a pitcher of your favorite beer or soda. I bet 9 out of 10 people go back within a month. I bring visiting family there all the time, and everybody raves.
BABES IS ALL ABOUT THE DOUBLE DECKER!!!! Don't even think about the single, it's ordinary at best unless you like hard thin crust pizza. The place is always crowded, and the little train does nothing for me, so I get mine to go since I'm only 5 minutes away. The Greek salad isn't bad either, and helps balance out all the carbs. Babes has been around for a long time because it just tastes better, It's the only pizza my son wants when he comes back home and I'm happy to oblige.
I think those 1 star reviews are from people who work for Pizza hut or other pizza chain. Each to their I guess. I will say though I love this place. When you first get the double decker you think no way will that fill everyone up. Wheew does it ever!
My son and I love trying new pizza places and Babe's was recommended by a friend who lives in Brandon. We waited FOREVER for a table and then we ordered the double decker pizza, the house specialty. It was terrible. The crust was so doughy and undercooked. The sauce was very bland and the toppings were not high quality. I have no idea why people in Brandon like this place so much..
