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

They have a VERY expansive menu, so there truly is something for everyone. Personally, I go there for the hot dogs. They are the big kind of dog, so if you don't like that, this isn't the dog for you. The buns are steamed just right, too. Nice variety of toppings. The only bad part of Babe's is the fries....

If you have never been to Babe's Hot Dogs then you have been depriving yourself of one of the greatest hot dogs ever. I went to Babe's and not only are the hot dogs excellent the staff is so nice and very help full.

Stopped for a late evening meal and were somewhat disappointed. The jumbo dogs that we had were waterlogged and tasteless. The homemade beef sandwiches and fries were about average. This prices are quite high for what you get. We will not be back!

Babe's is a great place if you want a good hot dog. It is a little pricey but what isn't these days. I like that it is a locals joint, locally owned.

The hot dogs here are great and the place was busy the whole time I was in town for business. I'm not sure if it was from eating out so much and not being used to it, but my stomach was a little iffy after the guys I was working with and I ate there. The polish boy hot dog... More
