Old-Fashioned Burgers in a Classic Setting

Good, old-fashioned burgers, fries and shakes in a classic setting. The burgers were very good, juicy and tasty, and the fries were very good as well. A huge outdoor picnic area is perfect for the kids to run off some of the extra energy, while you relax under a tree. Fun place.

Skip's is always the same! Fresh and fantastic! I crave these curly fries all winter long! I have been going here for 35 years and I have never had a complaint. Time and time again the consistency of their food is second to no other old fashioned burger joint!

We've been going here every summer for the 20 years my wife and I have been a couple. Bring cash, as they don't accept debit or credit cards, and the nearest machine is down the street. Lots of choices for what to get, right down to p.b.& j. sandwiches. Burgers and fries are the big draw, with any combo of... More

I can just barely remember my grandparents taking me here on our trip to Maine in the early 50's. Before the highways route 110 was the main drag. There is still a menu from the 50's inside. The burger was the same way served way back then, lettuce tomato & mayo. Due yourselves a big favor and see what your... More

Nice to know places can remain true to what they do best. This place has it down for the burger and very tasty curly fries. You cannot go wrong with the fodd, the price and on a nice day eating outside on the picnic tables. A definite keeper in your book for a burger.

We stopped at Skip's to meet friends for our lunch on our way to Maine. We wanted a place that was convenient to our travel route and, most importantly, dog friendly. Skip's was fantastic on all accounts. Skip's has a large outdoor dining area that backs up to a beautiful open field - I'm assuming this may be where their... More

We wanted a burger but not a fast food type. We didn't have much time to stop and be served. This place was perfect. Burgers we made to order - fries were Amazing. Fresh. We ate outside - they so also have an indoor seating area. This place hit the spot.

Started enjoying the yummy cheeseburger specials and handmade chocolate shakes back in 1965 and they haven't changed a bit. Moved away 30 years ago but never miss the chance to visit every time I get back in the area...really a favorite

We've been going to skips for years. It's a place where families go for generations and great for all ages. There are tables inside and out. If you sit outside there's a huge field for kids to run around in. They're famous for their cheeseburger specials with curly fries. They also have a lot of other things to choose from.... More

Been going to Skip's for over 30 years and will keep going there as long as I am able. Cannot go a summer without the taste of that cheeseburger special!
