The best ever! Hot dogs are beyond superlatives. Fries are excellent. Service was efficient and welcoming despite a crush of customers lined up out the door. Wow! Will certainly be back for more.

This place is so good. The pretzel hot dog buns are perfect. They freshly cut French fries, the Dutch rootbeer, and the grilled hotdog with mustard is delicious!

Really loved their hot dogs and fresh fries. Tasted great. Cute downtown location which can get crowded. Limited hours really, on lunch. Great pretzels as well! Had other types of sandwiches as well. Will be back.

The pretzel Hot Dog Buns are unique and good. Unfortunately, "Skippy" hasn't learned how to put a few dogs on the griddle in advance of the lunchtime rush every day. He waits until you order before putting a dog on the griddle. Thus, service is slower than necessary, especially for takeout.

Skippys is a great little place to go for the best hotdog and fries. Fries are fresh cut, hotdogs are served on wonderful pretzel buns. And if you are not in the mood for a hotdog, they offer a good variety of sandwiches as well as homemade pretzels.

All I can really say is read the reviews...If you like hot dogs than this is the place. Big hot dogs on pretzel buns cooked fresh on the flat top. Fries are small but each batch is cook fresh for every order. You do have to wait, so it is not fast food, but it is worth the wait. They... More

Great selection of soda and have beer. Homemade pretzel buns are the best. Get there early for lunch. They run out of buns some days and close early.

I know there are some who prefer Kermit's but Skippy's is so much better. First, the hot dogs are split lenthwise so that they can be grilled on the flat top grill and get nicely charred edges which give it a great depth of flavor. Then you have their homemade pretzel bun that is toasted on the flat top as... More

Skippy's is a classic joint: it's located in a nondescript storefront, it's cramped inside, and there are barely enough tables and chairs to seat the clientele. But nevertheless, there's usually a long line of hungry folks - sometimes out the door - waiting to order. Why? Because Skippy's serves the best hot dogs in Winston Salem - and the best... More
