Lived in Anderson in the 90s. Would bring my kids here to eat as a treat. Was excited to visit and have one "all the way" Skins did not disappoint. Best hot dogs ever.

Locals only joint that serves up good hot dogs and sodas. Quick turns on the seating so leave your romance novel at home...eat and beat it! The hot dogs are firm and heated thru in their water bath. They aren't grilled and I prefer this method. Good chili slaw dogs too...worth the pop in gor the taste of small town... More

I have tried this place twice, and each time the dogs tasted like soap. The chili is weak and lackluster, and the dogs watery. I prefer grilled dogs from Cook-Out. Service is good and prices low if you like this kind of thing.

I had two hot dogs, chips, and a soda. It was great! I like the food. But, there was a problem at the cash register. I noticed the cashier was wearing gloves while taking money and running the cash register. I had seen her earlier delivering food to tables. I also noticed someone in the kitchen was not wearing gloves.... More

Wow do not know what to say about this review but her goes. Our front people(waitress and cashiers ) NEVER NEVER touch or prepare the food. They will always serve the food making sure there is no physical contact with the food. There is always a paper barrier between the servers hand and the food. If one of our waitress... More

Tony Sorry you do not think the hotdogs are the same. We have not changed the chili recipe, the wiener recipe or the family who owners all of the location. We would be crazy to change these two things. Hey that is all we sales. Same Chili recipe, same wiener recipe and same family since 1946. I would love to... More

I love taking people from out-of-town here for their first time. They either love it or hate it. I'm not a big fan of hotdogs, but I will indulge in some Skin's from time to time. It's such a unique experience and flavor.

An Anderson staple for years. Many people like and enjoy it. I'm more of a an ALL-BEEF HOT DOG kind of guy. Please hold the pork. Not interested in obtaining high blood pressure. Henry's hotdogs much better on Hwy 187 in Anderson County.

What can I say, they sell hotdogs, service is fast and cheerful price is good but it's hard to get excited about a hotdog.

These are the best Dogs around no question about it! Noticed someone posted earlier too high. If you call 2 Hotdogs, Chip and a Drink for $6.34 too high then I'm not sure where you are eating at! These are the same hotdogs I grew up on. Nothing has changed! They are the same no matter which store of theirs... More

Since they have opened so many new places, it seems the hot dogs have gotten smaller and the price has gone up!!! Not worth the price!!! The hotdogs don't taste the same anymore. I don't know what they have changed but we won't be going back!!!! Tell others also!!
