If you like hot dogs...

If you are a hot dog fan, then this is the spot in Anderson. The original location is a hole-in-the-wall with a down home feel; the newer locations serve the same food, but are more like average suburban fast food spots.

Skins has one thing - Hot dogs! And they do it really good. There are locations all over the upstate, but I would recommend to go to the original location downtown. The dogs take less than 5 minutes to prepare, and you can also get a bag of chips and some cake. An Anderson tradition!

First let me say this is not my favorite meal, but it is the best hotdog I have ever eaten. The secret is mayo on the hot dog for me... The chili is made fresh and hot dogs made when ordered, however you want them. This restaurant is fast, friendly and fresh would be the way I described it.

I enjoy eating the best hotdogs in Anderson. You must eat at the old Skins. That is where you have great service, they know you by name and it is in an old store building.

Skins has the best hotdogs ever. We live 2 hours away and every time we come to Anderson we have to go to Skins and uses all take a cooler full home! I would recommend a visit to everyone who likes hotdogs. They melt in your mouth (like a hot Krispy Kreme doughnut).

I'm sorry, but I'll have agree with Roger ---- in the world of 10,000 hotdog stops, Skins falls on the very very bottom.. The buns are lifeless, the hotdog is small, skinless and made from mystery meat(?) and the chili has an inch of something floating on top (these aren't bragging rights) ..... In desperate times we've eaten "Gas Station... More

Skin's hot dogs are very good...lot of flavor. The chili is all meat, so you have to like that kind of chili. Fountain drinks would be nice, but they have what you go for...hot dogs!

I love stopping by the old Skins restaurant. They have the best hotdogs and cole slaw. It is a very small place but it is always packed full of people!

I have lived in Anderson all my life and I still don't understand what the Skin's rave is about. The bun is soggy, the wiener is mushy and the chili is greasy. Skins is missing all the things that make a great hotdog. On a positive note...The staff is very friendly and the chocolate pound cake is great. 2 hotdogs,... More

Thank you for caring enough to post a comment. Your response does not happen often in our stores. In fact we sell over a ton a chili per week and have service over five generations of customers in Anderson County since 1946. Our hotdogs have never changed and the Skins Thrasher family still owns Skins after all these years. The... More

This is a Family owned and run restaurant for years. They make their own chili and it is good. The wait staff is all over this placed wanting to please. Enjoy the time spent here.
