Skippy's has food similar to Portillos with Gyros thrown in. it is cheaper than Portillo's, but not as good. The fries get cold very quickly. Great Italian Ice though!

Love the Chicken Gyros! Loved seeing owner's wife in the front taking orders in South Elgin. Family owned and you feel the love!

Fantastic cod sandwich with excellent fries. Wish they served Vole instead of Pepsi. I'm so glad they are in the neighborhood.

Nice clean atmosphere along with friendly, smiling employees. Meals are good portions and good value. Must try the Italian beef with mozzarella cheese, it is to die for!

This place has tender Gyros and fresh tasting burgers. Their fries have a seasoning on them which can throw you a bit, but not too bad.

I have never been to a Skippy's and didn't know what to order but a customer behind me told be the Athenian chicken was the "bombdiggity" and so I ordered it. She was right. Absolutely wonderful food. I wish they had one in GA.

Go for the chicken gyro - it's the best item on the menu - also the rice pilaf and chicken soup are phenomenal! A bit nicer than some other Greek competitors in town. Worth the expense if dining in.
