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!

Good fast service. The fresh cut fries are fun and taste like a potato. We had 2 regular burgers, one no mayo, nice size, looked good with lettuce n tomato and tasted great. Worth the stop!

Car shows are fantastic. Wish they were open year round. Burgers and curly fries are my favorite-so good! A real old fashioned drive-in. You order at front counter and pick up at window. Inside seating and restrooms with picnic tables outside. They also serve ice cream and I have heard the frappes are great. Large field in back which is... More
