NRH Next Location for Babe's Chicken Dinner House and Sweetie Pie's Ribeyes
The City of North Richland Hills is excited to welcome two new restaurants to be located on the southeast corner of Loop 820 and Rufe Snow Drive. Babe’s Chicken Dinner House and Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes will be constructed on the site that formerly housed NRH’s Municipal Court, Recreation Center, Library and Parks Administration offices.
Babe's Chicken Dinner House is a family style and family owned restaurant with 9 locations in and around the DFW area. A regional destination, each Babe’s location draws over 300,000 annual guest visits per year. Ranked the most popular restaurant in DFW by Zagat, where a Babe’s chooses to locate other restaurants typically follow. Construction for Babe’s began in late 2017 and the restaurant will open in mid to late 2018.
Just next door, Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes, a sister restaurant to Babe’s Chicken Dinner House, will open their second location. Sweetie Pie’s currently has only one location which opened in May 2006 in Decatur, TX. This family-friendly steakhouse was recently featured in Texas Highways, the Travel Magazine for the State of Texas. The restaurant is known not only for its steaks, but for its baked potatoes and pot pies. Sweetie Pie’s is planned to begin construction by the end of 2018 with an opening date in 2019.
These new additions will help address the most requested type of business from our recent citizen survey: full service restaurants.
