Skips has the best hamburger in town. A very large plate. Do not expect to go home hungary, not possible. Not the lowest priced burger, just the best. You get what you expect at Skips. The owner is on site to make certain it works.

Burgers were undercooked and the waffle fries had kind of an off taste. Based on the other reviews, I think we were there on an off day or something. Staff is friendly and eager to please. They have a decent selection of beer and wine too. Definitely try them again.

Food and friends make this a lively place. All around you people are talking, lots of good energy at this small eatery. It was especially nice to have the manager/ chef come by for a chat. The service is excellent and food delicious.

I had the beacon cedar burger, they were able do it as a lettuce wrap, perfect skinny sweet potato fries. The burger with the beacon flavor was very good. Cooked perfectly. Over all a place to return to. Skip's is right in the middle of our 2 favorite Thrift Town stores.

Very small place, with great food. I have only been for lunch several times, not dinner yet. The burgers are great but the 3 cheeseburger really could and should have more cheese in my opinion. I appreciate that their wine selection is local but their selection is small and not the best considering the amazing local wineries we have nearby.... More

Not a lot of parking, but you can park on the street. We went around 1:30 and most tables were occupied. The actual restaurant doesn't look like much, but it's popular. The service at the order counter was enthusiastic and helpful. There was beer and wine. We still were not convinced until our food arrived (it was timely). Food was... More

I love this quaint place! I am always greeted by someone and there are always locals there too, which can be their downfall when they carryon with them and forget about other customers, just saying. Their food is always top notch but I have only been for lunch. The parking can be a bear as the lot is so small,... More

The customer service is great for such a small restaurant. Good Steak Sandwich & excellent Sweet Potato Fries! I can't wait to try their Fried Shrimp and Garlic Parmesan Fries.

Everything at Skips is tasty from hamburgers to salads. The quality and quantity of food is tremendous and we try new things all the time. They are all delicious. Skip is usually there to greet us and lets customers try a game for a free meal each time an order is placed. We go there at least three times a... More
