On April 22, 1993, Paul and Mary Beth Vinyard opened the first Babe's in Roanoke, Texas, located North East of Ft. Worth and West of Grapevine. It has only 155 seats and is located in a warehouse building built in 1908. "Babe" is Mary Beth's nick name; she developed the recipes so we named the restaurant Babe's.
The Babe's in Garland was opened in May of 1994. Over the years we have developed a broader menu for this Babe's, including many of the items we now serve in the other Babe's locations. Paul and Mary Beth also own Bubba's in Dallas, on Hillcrest near S.M.U., Bubba is Paul's nickname. Bubba's is a 1927 Texaco Service Station converted to an Art Deco styled Restaurant. We opened Bubba's in 1981.
