I can't wait for April to get here so Skip's will open. Skip's has been a Merrimac landmark for a very long time. They are famous for their specials. Any special (hamburger, cheeseburger, chicken finger etc.) comes with a huge amount of curly fries. That is Skip's signature item. The curly fries are what people come from near and far... More

Since 1947 Skip's has been serving their delicious and famous Suzie Q fries along with cheeseburgers, hot dogs, crab rolls and much more. Throw in their Cruise nights all summer long and you've got the best summer has to offer.

Stopped by Skip's for the first time this year. We love their old school burgers served with curly fries in paper bags to go. It is an enjoyable taste experience from days gone by! Near Rte. 495.

Skip's is always the same! Fresh and fantastic! I crave these curly fries all winter long! I have been going here for 35 years and I have never had a complaint. Time and time again the consistency of their food is second to no other old fashioned burger joint!

Good, old-fashioned burgers, fries and shakes in a classic setting. The burgers were very good, juicy and tasty, and the fries were very good as well. A huge outdoor picnic area is perfect for the kids to run off some of the extra energy, while you relax under a tree. Fun place.

We've been going here every summer for the 20 years my wife and I have been a couple. Bring cash, as they don't accept debit or credit cards, and the nearest machine is down the street. Lots of choices for what to get, right down to p.b.& j. sandwiches. Burgers and fries are the big draw, with any combo of... More

I can just barely remember my grandparents taking me here on our trip to Maine in the early 50's. Before the highways route 110 was the main drag. There is still a menu from the 50's inside. The burger was the same way served way back then, lettuce tomato & mayo. Due yourselves a big favor and see what your... More

Nice to know places can remain true to what they do best. This place has it down for the burger and very tasty curly fries. You cannot go wrong with the fodd, the price and on a nice day eating outside on the picnic tables. A definite keeper in your book for a burger.
