Truly great dogs and fries. Very friendly waitstaff. Will go back on my next trip. Lots of other sandwich choices, but always have these dogs when in the vicinity.

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.

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).

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.
