“Good food; poor service”

We live nearby so stop in frequently. We do enjoy their burgers and their lobster rolls. The curly fries are our favorite. The only complaint we have is their customer service around closing time. They start to close down 15 minutes prior to this posted closing time so sometimes the door is even locked! One time we sat in the indoor seating part and they started to shut off lights while we were still eating. The staff would peek around the corner and glare at us. I would surmise that the posting closing time means the time that the staff walk out the door! In summary, don't arrive at Skip's 15 minutes before closing time.

Food was average. Seemed better in years past. Always get the deluxe cheeseburger French fries were good.

Skip's snack bar brings back fond childhood memories. The double cheeseburger with onions, curly fries and wing dings are our favorite. We go there frequently to enjoy a great meal and classic car shows. A must for folks who live in the Merrimack Valley.

Went to Skips Snack Bar after not being there in years. It was every bit as good as I remember. Great Cheeseburger Special with their famous Curly Q Fries. Fast Friendly service. Eat in or at outside picnic tables.

After hearing how this place had the most amazing burgers ever...we had to go. Unfortunately the burgers were just pretty average; it was convenient and the food was tasty, so no problems, no complaints. Decor is of the vintage, "remember these locals?" sort. Would certainly go again, just don't expect the "best ever" :-)
