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 !

Great food, need bigger space.

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... read 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

Every week, I look forward to a trip to downtown Winston-Salem for one of the most special meals I will enjoy all week. Skippy's Hot Dogs is my destination. I've never had a hot dog like it anywhere. Everything is done right. I always order the Reuben dog with freshly grilled sauerkraut, cheese, a good strong mustard. All on fresh... More

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.
