Skippy's Hot Dogs are the Best Dogs

The Nathan's all beef dog on the toasted pretzel bun needs to be ordered "All the Way" They will put chili, cheese and cole slaw on yours and it is really is a great filling value.

I love going to Skippy's. It is a nice change from the other "hot dog" places in W-S. I've only tried the dogs, and love the "Chicago Dog" because it's something different :) Go early if you want to sit and eat. Place fills up really quick !!

The place is a hole in the wall, walk in and order sit down . Good old timey restaurant. No fountain drinks only cans, the waitress was extremely nice and the place was very clean. The food however, was just Ehhh. The pretzel bun is on all sandwiches and hot dogs. I like pretzels a lot but was not crazy... More

Skippy's is one of my favorite lunch spots in Winston Salem. The fries are hand-cut & the hot dogs are served on pretzel buns. So delicious!!! Seating is limited, but you can usually find a table by the time your food is done.

This is the best casual dining in Winston! They have great hotdogs, sandwiches and fries. It is owned and run by a man and woman and they are always there. You can tell they care about this place and how it's run. The pretzel bread is great! Not your ordinary hotdog:)!

Hotdogs can prepared several ways. Good taste and fast service. I feel a little over price but closest hotdogs and best if you work downtown.

A friend recently opened a shop nearby and since it was lunchtime ,I decided to give Skippy's a try.I rarely eat hotdogs out, since I prefer them with kraut, and it is never available at other places that serve hot dogs, hence I normally indulge my occasional desire for a hot dog at home.I've made my last dog at home!...

So, after reading all the glowing reviews, we had to try these pretzel dogs... and they lived up to the hype! Good quality, served hot, and very tasty. The fries probably would have as well had we skipped the chili/cheese option, which made them a bit too soggy. Tiny doesn't even begin to describe how small this place is, but... More
