Recently ate here during evacuation from Hurricane Irma. I used to live in Atlanta and haven't had a good hot dog since I left town. As usual, Skip's did not disappoint.

Nice variety of Chicago style food. This has become a 2nd home. A family treat at least once a month.

Drove 45 minutes to get some Chicago style food. And I must say I was overly pleased. Italian beef was the bomb. Extra juice and tamales. Will be visiting again and again.
