I can't believe I waited 50 years to decide I like Chicago hot dogs but good news is I found this awesome place 4 mins from my office that not only serves up a beautiful Chicago hot dog but also one of the best philly cheesesteaks also! Today I also tried the corn dog so I know I'm in trouble... More

I have been eating lunch here for more years than I can remember; at least 10 or 15 and maybe more. The Chicago dogs are authentic down to the bright green relish, sport peppers, poppy seed buns and Vienna beef dogs. Good burgers- char grilled with a toasted bun. Italian beef sandwiches- YES, you can get them dipped and served... More

This is a great place,to drive thru or eat out on the patio. I love the foot long hot dogs here, and don't forget the onion rings. I usually eat them before I get home, and then only have my hotdog left to eat. Try it you'll love it

When my family and I were in Atlanta the last week of May. We stop by skip on our way back to Florida. My late father told me about this place so we found it by accident.

This is a fun place to take your kids for a quality Hot Dog.. top notch service and a true "joint" experience. Get your Dog all the way Chicago Style. You will not be disappointed. Also have a great Michael Jordan Wingspan poster that never ceases to amaze.

Skips is a cool place to go. Casual and relaxed atmosphere. The menu has a lot of variation even though it's a hot dog place. Good french fries and great hot dogs. The folks are VERY welcoming to the customers too.
