Friendly outgoing cashiers and staff. Order at the counter and then they bring your hot fresh order. Not inexpensive but it brings in the crowds, construction workers, city staff, locals and those just passing through. Fast and good eats.

Not healthy, but if you want a hot dog, you won't be disappointed. Basic dog, then add what you want.

I always say that I will try something different but when its my turn to order I ALWAYS order he Chicago style dogs. Outstanding. I also love their French fries. Seems a tad pricey for a dog but WHAT A DOG!

I grew up in Chicago and miss the food very much. When I found Skips I could not have been more excited. Great dogs and fries. The Philly is out if this world. Service is top notch. If you dine in it is usually packed and the booths are a tight fit if you are a large person such as myself. Overall definitely a place you don't want to miss.

These hotdogs remind me so much of home! it's the classic vienna beef hotdog, dragged through the garden. They even have the celery salt! Folks are so nice here, they always yell "hey, welcome to skip's!" when we go in. They have great outdoor seating for nice days. The decor is a little off. They used to have a lot of Chicago sporting (Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, Sox...) memorabilia, but now it seems like there are mostly local college pennants. Not that that matters too much, the hotdogs are great, and the dipped subs are killer!
