Skippy's is a one of the most popular lunch places in the beautiful downtown of Winston Salem. We are a very small place, so we get crowded quickly and at times, seats may be challenging to get. All food is cooked fresh to order so we ask that you be patient. You can be sure that the staff at Skippy's does their very best to ensure that you and yours have an enjoyable experience !

Yummy

The hot dogs and pretzel buns were delicious. I had the Chicago dog, husband all the way, both excellent. The soft pretzels were ok, a little on the dry side. Very happy to have a Pa Dutch birch beer with my meal. French fries were bland and a little too greasy. Staff pleasant. Very small... read more

With a handwritten chalk board, limited seating, and a simple menu, Skippys brings world class grilled hot dogs with a variety of toppings to hungry customers. Table space is limited at lunch time so be prepared to hawk over a table until the patrons finish their dog. Fries were a little dull and greasy but the dog is the highlight... More

We were taken here by family while visiting. They swear by the place and I can see why. The hotdogs and pretzel buns were delicious along, the hand cut fries were good but slightly over cooked. The atmosphere is casual, and almost looks like the place is closing down but is also part of the charm. I will gladly eat... More

They have ruined my life.... I can't eat a hot dog any place else. Their's is absolutely the best! Seating can sometimes be a little dicey but if you'll relax and be patient, seating will magically open up while you wait for your order. Be sure to order a basket of their hand cut fries to go along with that... More

This is the best hot dog you will ever put in your mouth. A large frank is split down the middle and laid in a beautiful soft pretzel bun. Heaven in your hands. Then in your stomach.....

I love Skippy's. I have loved them since they first opened in The Pavilions shopping center. Now that they are downtown I get there less frequently--but as a fluffy chick that is probably a good thing. I have never had anything but a hot dog all the way (mustard, slaw, chili, and onions) and a side of fries. I probably... More

As a Philly native, I was excited to try Skippy's soft pretzels especially after reading the good reviews on here. We arrived at 2:15 PM on a Saturday and they were OUT of pretzels! Since that is what we came for, we were quite disappointed. The woman behind the counter was friendly but nonchalant about it. So we ordered cheese... More

Skippy's is a small restaurant in downtown WS. All of their sandwiches and hot dogs are made on pretzel buns and they also sell the pretzels individually. If I had to rank my favorite restaurant in WS it would definitely be Skippys, their food is fantastic, hands down. However, I find it to be a little bit of a hassel... More
