It’s the first Babe’s Chicken Dinner House location, opened April 22, 1993 in the heart of historic downtown Roanoke.
Our building was built in 1908, and has been home to Bourland & Sons Hardware, Noah’s Grocery and Paradise Plant Shop, among others businesses.
The stamped metal on the back wall is the metal that used to be the ceiling of this building.
The name plaques hanging from our rafters make up our “Roost of Honor.” It serves as a reminder of those special employees that helped make a difference throughout the years, and had a positive impact on our loves, our business and our guests.
We have some additional tidbits to share when you’re sittin’ in the dining room – just ask to see our Babe’s Facts while you’re finishing up your salad.
