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 !

Skippy's Hot Digs

OMG! Hole in the wall on 4th St downtown Winstom Salem. A W-S institution. Quality meat hot dogs with fresh baked pretzel bun baked in house. Great fries and friendly service. A must visit if you are anywhere close by!

You might be able to tell through some of my other reviews, that I go out of my way for a good hot dog. We had tried to go to this place last year and the wait time was over an hour. So we passed and visited 2/6/16. We ordered two all the way with a basket of fries. The... More

Treat yourself to Lunch at Skippy's on 4th St. Splurge on one of the specialty dogs or create your own...with a side of hand cut fries...and the home made pretzel rolls. Don't miss the experience...no NASTY "red hots" here only real Nathan's Hot Dogs...the only thing that would make it better is if they switched to Hoffmann's Hot Dogs!!!!!

These are best hot dogs in town. They where way ahead of the curve on the pretzel bun craze. The fries are great as well I always get Chicago dog. The wait can be brutal especially at lunch. I rarely sit down because of the customers hawking tables like they are gold bars. They need to expand badly and move... More

Skippy's has a great reputation. Based on said reputation, I wanted to drop by for lunch while I was on a road trip, get something to go and be on my merry way. Unfortunately, I was not the only one that had similar plans. Me and my buddy walked in. There was a line. No big deal. Didn't seem to... More

Skippy's is a good option for lunch if you are in the downtown Winston area have some time to spare. The hotdog quality is good and the hotdog buns are homemade which adds a great addition to the dog flavor. My husband thought that the chili was just "ok" and feels that Sonic's chili cheese dog is better. My gripe... More

I almost opted out of this place because of the crowd, and it's a small place at that, but it was worth the wait and a great place to meet someone for lunch.

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. Two adults and two children... 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
