Locally owned, good food

Babe's is known for its hotdogs, but the menu has tons more options that will please people with different tastes, so it's a great option when everyone can't agree on what to eat. The food is pretty good and there are even healthier options like design your own salad. In addition to being a locally... read more

Italian beef was much smaller than average, but priced the same as an average beef. Meat is thicker cut and therefore the meat is tougher-chewy. Plenty of space inside and tables were clean. Food was ready quickly.

Fantastic hotdogs! Specials are also great. You get what you pay for and it is worth the trip. Discount cards for frequent guests and weekly specials makes it a pretty good place to eat. In fat, I so love the specials, I keep coming back for more.

After visiting my grandpa my brother wanted to stop here as it is a favorite of ours originally being from the area. Regardless of the negative comments on here we have never had a bad experience. Always get the jumbo hot dog which is actually jumbo but tasty and the fries which were good not too salty. Their burgers and... More

If you haven't tried Babe's yet, you really don't know what you are missing. Visit them on Tuesday and try their 99 cent jumbo hotdogs. They also run food and drink specials on other days as well. We love it!

I dislike jumbo dogs so I get the cheeseburger. The meat was tasteless and had been kept in a holding pan/steamtable. I have no idea how it was cooked to begin with, but it appeared steamed, no grill marks. A smear of some cheese and boring frozen fries capped off this disappointment. I felt ripped off after tossed it.

Really great Chicago Style Hot Dog and lots of great ambiance, with many photos of period and vintage "rides" inside the dining room. Just a lot of fun!

Used to enjoy this place. The food is good but to make the customer happy is not their speciality. I have gotton carryout 4 times from this place in the last 4 weeks and the order has been messed up. I have to drive back and waste my personal gas to get the correct order. All they say is sorry... More
