With winter knocking at our door, and school vacation fast upon us, finding a place to escape the cold and have some fun is a "must do"! You will discover just such a place in the lively and hunger-busting restaurant "Skippy's", happily located inside popular Meadowbrook Bowling Lanes in Warwick. It is a great concept ~ gather with your friends for a game of bowling, and then top off your fun with a bowl of finger-lickin'-good chicken wings.
Skippy's is not your ordinary "freezer to fryer" snack bar; it is the creation of lifelong lover of homestyle, homemade cooking, Mark Hinsley.
Come in to Skippy's and treat your self to hot pizza, made with Mark's own homemade tomato sauce (this is nothing out of a can or frozen food aisle here)! Top your steamy cheese pizza with one of these many toppings: pepperoni, homemade meatballs and sausage, mushrooms, peppers, onions, tomatoes and now, feta cheese, fresh mozzarella, aromatic basil AND the ever-popular buffalo chicken? Mark uses only fresh vegetables that are hand sliced every day to keep their brightness and flavor. Absolutely delicious.
When it comes to the grill, you can't beat one of Skippy's flavor-packed NY Style Hot Wieners. Satisfied customers say these wieners top Olneyville's wieners - but only you can be the judge! Sink your teeth into a succulent hamburger, cheeseburger or even another Rhode Island favorite - the tantalizing "saugy". Skippy's features its mega 10" Calzone - a homemade pizza shell, folded over and STUFFED with your heart's desire. Everything here at Skippy's is made-to-order, so you can have it just the way you like it.
Mark Hinsley spares no effort when it comes to his subs either. Using crusty bread delivered fresh every day from Crugnale's Bakery in Providence, Skippy's subs exceed those of your typical sandwich joint. Try the Steak Bomb Pounder, a 12", one pound of juicy steak loaded with fresh sandwich meats, cheeses, peppers and mushrooms. How about a chicken parmesan or meatball sub, made with Mark's very own meatballs and hand-breaded chicken breasts?
For onion ring, cheese stick and chicken lovers everywhere, the best is yet to come. Mark hand-dips the super-sized onion rings, hand-batters the cheese sticks, hand-breads the tenders, and then fries them to perfection. Mark now introduces his Jumbo sized fried mushrooms and deep fried pickles - chunks of pure deliciousness.
