That’s because they make every burger to order, so each one is the absolute freshest, juiciest, and most delicious it can be.

They also get shipments of perfect, farm-fresh vegetables every day that they slice by hand in each restaurant, because they won’t put anything less than the best on their legendary burgers. And it’s not just the special seasoning on the famous french fries that makes them so good. It’s also that they were whole potatoes only hours ago.

Best of the Best Local Dining

Babes Chicken Opens in new windowBabe's Chicken House  |  200 South Main St

Being the best is not an easy task, but Babe's Chicken House does deliver. Fun Fact: The Cedar Hill location is a remodel of the Cedar Hill City Hall. It started out as a fire station in 1962 with 3 engine bays. In 1987 the fire station operations relocated and the building began its second life as City Hall.  In the southwest corner of the building, there is a monument built to honor the building’s previous service. A series of radio towers that were on the building when they began construction once transmitted for police and fire operations for many years, and we kept them in their original glory as a monument.

If you want a great down-home chicken meal with all of the fixins, Babe's is the place to be!
