The Babe’s Chicken Dinner House in Carrollton opened on October 4, 2004.
While the date of construction is uncertain, in 1911 this location was a Lyon-Gray Lumber yard, which later became a Foxworth-Galbraith lumber yard sometime around the 1930s.
The Dart Rail to the east of Babe’s in Carrollton runs above the railroad track that was laid down for the Katy Railroad. By 1908, 3 major railroads intersected just north of the Carrollton Town Square. Having three railroads intersect was unique and contributed to Carrollton’s early prosperity.
In 1913, the first Ford dealership in Dallas County was established across the street in the large Jackson-Miller building, on the south east corner of Broadway and Main Street.
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.
