Known as a staple to Frisco for its homestyle country fried chicken and southern atmosphere, Babe’s Chicken Dinner House has called Frisco home since 2008. However, when it’s sister restaurant Bubba’s Cooks Country had the chance to open its second location since 1981 in Frisco, the Vineyard family jumped at it.

On Feb. 5, Bubba’s opened its doors off Preston near Lebanon, meeting the community’s anticipation that’s been looming since they the possibility was first announced in 2018.

Named after one of the owners, Paul “Bubba” Vineyard, the family’s mission has been to bring southern comfort food to others through old family recipes and they did just that.

Offering an old retro diner feel, Bubba’s gives diners a blast from the past with its neon signs, red leather booths, and checkered tiles.

Keeping the same fried chicken that Frisco residents fell in love with at Babe’s, Bubba’s brings new items to the menu as well as offering a more casual venue and drive through for a quick bite.

Beyond their mouth-watering chicken fried steak, inviting baked beans, classic chicken and waffles, Bubba’s yeast roll was a must have and by far one of the best parts of the meal.

Visiting on its’ fourth day open, the diner was already packed with eager Frisco residents. Despite the crowd, Bubba’s kept up with the steady flow of people as food was delivered quickly.

Meeting expectations of what has been anticipated since September, Bubba’s should have no problem maintaining its current popularity for years to come as it gives Frisco what, it was in dire need of: an old fashioned diner.
