Just like everything else this Chicago-born, father-and-son duo has concocted, the Skip Burger is a classic for a reason. That reason? It's just good ol' fashioned, 'Merican deliciousness.If we were to close our eyes and think real hard about what exactly constitutes a neighborhood hot dog joint, Skip's Hot Dogs would be the first to spring to mind. With its cozy, homey space, throwback booths and cheery mustard yellow walls, it has everything we could hope for in such a place, including the delicious hot dogs. But Skip's doesn't just settle for being a respectable Chicago-dog joint. No sir, in addition to providing on-site catering, here the cooks also sling a mighty fine burger, and with confidence. The Skip's Burger, as it's affectionately called, is a marinated quarter-pound patty, piled high with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions and all the requisite condiments. And, yes, it tastes as good as it sounds.

Let's talk a little more about that marinade, shall we? Instead of just slapping some seasoning onto the burger and calling it good, Skip's marinates every patty with care, letting it soak up the goodness of that housemade sauce. And in case you were wondering: yes, it's basically a direct infusion of flavor. We're more than okay with that.
