We ate at Skeeter's for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was very good -- my husband and I had pancakes, grits, eggs, and hash browns between us. It was served promptly and with a smile. When we ate for dinner, we tried the hot dogs. They were good also. The place is very informal but wonderfully decorated. You really cannot... More

I loved the skeeter dog. I was kind of shocked they didn't have French fries or onion rings on the menu. I felt like something was missing because of it. The hot dogs though is what they are known for...so based on that I gave it a 4. The slaw and chili were really good! I would eat there again.

Okay, this ain't fancy food. We stopped in for a late lunch and the Skeeter Dogs. Yep, they are good old-fashioned red wienies on a bun with mustard, onions, and chili. For what they are, and the very low price, it don't get any better than this. For a good, cheap lunch, Skeeter's can't be beat.

You can't cruise through this town and NOT stop by Skeeters for a Skeeter-dog. It's a quick stop when you fill up and easy access back to I-77 or I-81. And the price?! How else are you going to beat that and you're putting money back into a sweet little town! Love my skeeter-dogs with chili, ketchup, mustard, and chopped... More

The service was good and the decor was very interesting but the food was disgusting. The place reeked of old grease and the sunny side up eggs I had tasted of old grease. I could not get past the old grease taste to even taste the egg. My husband had grits and they were the consistency of school paste. Not... More

They're hot dogs. How many ways can you serve them? It wasn't crowded when we went, but service was still slooooow. We weren't in a hurry, so it didn't really matter. I was underwhelmed.

Was craving hot dogs and found this online. It's red dogs so be prepared for that if you don't like them. I think they are great! Friendly atmosphere and lots of charm in this place! Also lots of history, First Lady Edith Bolling Wilson was born in the upstairs apartment. If you are in the area and want a great... More

Skeeters in Wytheville is an experience, you have truly stepped back in time here. After walking in from across the street at my hotel room at the BW hotel, I was sort of shocked. The older woman behind the farthest counter seemed to have a look on her face that questioned why I was there (umm to spend money to... More

We went to see the giant pencil and saw people entering this place. Nostalgic, great hot dogs and climate. Friendly service-great iced tea. Woodrow Wilson's wife was born in the building. An historic tour was held next door. Really special place to stop and have a quick, fun bite.

Great place to grab a unique hot dog and go back in time. We sat at the counter and even enjoyed a nice slice of apple pie ala mode.

Thank Robert S
