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

I love the hot dogs served on a pretzel bun. Skip bakes them fresh daily along with some terrific hand made pretzels too. You have to try the homemade mustard on the pretzels. It can get busy, but where there is no line, there is no good food...

It may be a hot dog...but this is not any hot dog! Skippy's is without a doubt the best hot dog (served on a toasted pretzel roll) in the southeast! Eat and believe!

Finally got to eat at Skippy's. We have tried to dine there several times on Saturday evenings before the Summer on Trade music events, but Skippy's is always closed. They shut the door and lock up at 5 p.m. on Saturdays, but the crowds start descending on the Arts District for SOT around 6 p.m. so they miss out on... More

Modest prices. Quick service. Grumpy owner/manager. Look out for indigestion afterwards. Evidently not everyone's stomach feels the same as mine.
