House in Arlington Texas
The Babe’s Chicken Dinner House in Arlington opened in November of 2010.
This Babe’s Chicken Dinner House is located right next to the Arlington Music Hall, which opened in 1950 and still features the original theater marquee. Since 1974, the theater has featured Johnnie High’s Country Music Revue every Saturday night. Johnnie High’s show has opened the door for many successful singers including LeAnn Rimes, Steve Holy, Lee Ann Womack and many others.
The patio waiting area walls are built out of petrified wood. Not only is it hard to find but it’s also expensive. This very heavy rock often sells for $1 a pound. The petrification of wood is possible in a few hundred years.
In the center of the dining room you can’t miss our 9 foot neon café sign featuring a cowboy on a horse, twirling a lariat above his head. This sign stood above the Corral Café in Dumas, Texas, during the ‘40s and ‘50s. Dumas is located in Moore Country, towards the top of the Texas panhandle.
The water tower you walk under when entering the dining room is supported by legs made from the lighting towers which stood at the old Texas Stadium.
