“Best dogs by far”
Review of Skippy's - CLOSED

Skippy's
Price range: $4 - $8
Description: 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 !

Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

I love the hot dogs served on a pretzel bun. Skip bakes them fresh daily along with some terrific hand made pretzels too. You have to try the homemade mustard on the pretzels. It can get busy, but where there is no line, there is no good food...

“Hot Dog!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

It may be a hot dog...but this is not any hot dog! Skippy's is without a doubt the best hot dog (served on a toasted pretzel roll) in the southeast! Eat and believe!

“Very good hotdog, but my favorite is still Kermit's!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Finally got to eat at Skippy's. We have tried to dine there several times on Saturday evenings before the Summer on Trade music events, but Skippy's is always closed. They shut the door and lock up at 5 p.m. on Saturdays, but the crowds start descending on the Arts District for SOT around 6 p.m. so they miss out on a lot of potential business. We live and work in rural Forsyth County, so we can never find Skippy's open when we're off work; however, we had a day off, ended up in downtown W-S and were so pleased to find Skippy's open. The place was packed, inside and outside, but the cashier told us a table would probably open up by the time our order was cooked. She was right, and we were able to dine inside. We ordered 2 Skippy's All-the-Way dogs, and they were delicious. The only complaint I have was with their chili. It was a little greasy and over-powered the slaw and onions. That wasn't a huge turn-off because the pretzel bun made me forget about the greasy chili. The restaurant was cheery and the employees were very courteous. There are no menus; items for sale are written on a chalkboard over the grill. I really enjoy hotdogs, and in my opinion, Skippy's all-the-way hotdog was very good; however, I still stand by my opinion that KERMIT'S HOTDOGS is the best dog in Winston-Salem.

“If your really in a hurry”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Modest prices. Quick service. Grumpy owner/manager. Look out for indigestion afterwards. Evidently not everyone's stomach feels the same as mine.
