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

For burgers, hot dogs and the like, Skips is a perfect place. Diner like feel with lots of nostalgia. Good place for kids as well!

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

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.

these guys are the nicest in the city, and their hot dogs are really Chicago Dogs - I'm from there too. Best catering for fun parties too, if you're looking for a casual celebration.

I love that it is family owned and operated. Very friendly staff and the orders are always served hot and fresh. They offer a wide variety of hot dogs and dress them to impress! You get your money's worth and can sit outside on a nice sunny day and relax on the outside benches. They also support the community by... More
