Due to owners illness, Skippy's is out of business. I went here at least once a week for the great hot dogs & pretzels. Will definitely miss this place.

I get the hot dogs all the way. They have pretzel buns, which are pretty good. I recommend stopping by. It is a small place though.

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 !
