“Awesome Dogs”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great hot dogs on pretzel rolls. This was one of the BEST hotdogs I have ever eaten, "all the way", truly Southern--all the way. Customize the dogs to suit your taste, they also have kraut. The fries were also very good. If you like really good Hotdogs be sure to visit Skippy's.

“Great Dogs, great buns, great fries, great experience!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I enjoyed a regular hot dog here and my daughter went with the veggie dog. Both were excellent, and the fries are great too! There are even a couple tiny tables outside, so we sat out there. The buns are pretzel, and delicious, too, and we really like the fact that you can customize your dog with a wide variety of toppings, all free.

My past experience, sometimes they get a little jammed in terms of a wait for your food, but it is good stuff! We went a little earlier and had no problem.

“THESE DOGS ARE GREAT!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

It's a small menu, order at counter, and it's brought to you.
The dogs are the best I've had, as are the TERRIFIC fries (and I rarely eat fries).
Small place that fills up, but also turns quickly. Tea, soda and bottled beer available.
Excellent value.

“They don't ruin a good (great) dog here!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a tiny shop that specializes in upper crust hot dogs -- and they do them great! They do have a few other non-dog items (and even a veggie dog) but the dog's where it's at here! They use all beef dogs split and grilled, with their own homemade pretzel dog buns! (These buns are worth the trip itself). Then you can load them up with just about anything you want -- they even do a fair "Chicago" style dog (all the right fixen's but of course on their pretzel roll and not the standard sesame seed bun).

My faves are the "All the Way" (slaw, mustard, chili) and Rueben (grilled sauerkraut, mustard, swiss cheese) !

The fries are plentiful and fresh and hot -- and they even have malted vinegar to appease my English heritage! :)
