Skip's Restaurant in Chelmsford

Found this place yesterday on my way through Chelsmford. I was attracted by the original 1960's sign outside and by the swarm of cars in the parking lot. Breakfast was hearty (plentiful, hot coffee served in a carafe, meaty slices of crispy bacon). Corned beef hash was homemade and top notch - I liked the texture of the shredded beef and the chunks of potato (unlike the usual beefy mush with little dots of potato in it). There was a very 1960s style bar in the back - red vinyl chairs and a black bar. I'd like to try it for dinner. Can anyone tell me more about this place? Suggestions for the dinner menu?
Wow...I was just thinking about this place last week when I was in Boston! I stayed in the hotel next door a year or so ago, by chance, for a symposium in Lowell. My companions and I ended up going there for every meal. I even have a Skip's coffee cup. I agree - the hash is the real thing, not out of a can. Everything we had was good and quite home-made-tasting. We all had the excellent prime rib one evening, with all the trimmings, and dynamite pies for dessert. I asked some colleagues from Lowell last week what was up with Skip's, and was told that the place may be under new ownership. Let's hope nothing changes!
