Huge hot dogs!

I haven't been in quite a while but Babe's has the largest hot dogs I've ever seen, and they will fix it with whichever toppings you want....you name it, they have it (within reason of course).

The best hot dog in the world!!! You can't beat Babe's. I've had hot dogs everywhere I travel and each time I can't wait to get back to Babe's.

Very good hot dogs. They offer a pretty big menu from hot dogs, beef sandwiches, burgers, salads, tamales, Polish sausage. Not a bad thing on the menu.

We used to go to babe's every Tuesday for their 1/2 hot dogs, we love their hotdogs and I'm not a hot dog eater usually. My husband will still go usually once a month for a hot dog still (have been trying to eat healthier). I have ordered some of their salads and wraps which ate also good. They have... More

We got here every few months. Very much enjoy the jumbo dog, maxwell street polish and parmesan chicken sandwich. Also have had Italian beefs. very good. Though we don't dine inside, it usually seems busy at lunch and dinner times. Always tasty 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 owned small business, the owner... 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.
