Skippy SlackerPosted: August 4, 2010
Wow, I’ve been a bad blogger. It’s been days since our outing with Alex and I haven’t shared a bit of the food with you. I’m ashamed of myself. I’ll try to be better, I promise. However, if you, my faithful readers, would leave more comments and tell more friends about the blog, I might just be more adamant about updating! No pressure.
So, back to Saturday. David and I took Alex to a place in downtown Winston-Salem that we ourselves had never visited: Skippy’s Hot Dogs.
I know, I know. Maggie, in a hot dog joint? Blasphemy! Well, before you get your panties in a wad, I’ll go ahead and inform you that they have veggie dogs. Now that may be blasphemy in most American’s opinion, but it was delicious!
There’s something you should know about Skippy’s dogs. They don’t come nestled in your run-of-the-mill, limp, hot dog bun. They are served inside an amazingly soft, chewy, fresh-baked, pretzel bun. Made on the premises, no less! It’s fair to say the buns are the star of this show.
Oh, look. Three weenies and fries!
I would have gotten better photos, but this place was packed and by the time these guys arrived at the table, we were way past hungry.
I did manage to get up close and personal with the French fries, though. They deserve special attention. These fried potatoes were amazing. Freshly cut, hot, crispy, starchy heaven.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
Go get some. Tell them Maggie sent you. They’ll have absolutely no idea who you’re referring to, but it sure would be cool if they did.
