unique little hot dog/sandwich shop

Clean, old-timey, visited by tourists and regulars as well. Have eaten there once or twice a month since I was a child - approximately 50 years ago.

We stopped at this restaurant after visiting the Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Museum. We were welcomed by an enthusiastic server who made sure we were taken care of and even surprised us with a homemade blackberry cobbler! This is a must see in Wytheville because of its longevity in the community!

We stopped in here Saturday for a hot dog. I got mine all the way. It was so good i had to order another before I left. My wife did the same thing. 1 is not enough. They have a very limited menu, if you dont like hotdogs you may be in trouble. Loved the ambiance of the place ,... More

We had breakfast sandwiches because it was convenient, fast and right across from our hotel- it is amazing how inexpensive it is- Ate at the counter and enjoyed the local flavor. Watched them getting ready for lunch - the hot dogs were a very bright pink/reddish color. I think I would've been scared to eat them- they did not look... More

History was interesting. Easy to get to from I 81. Hot dogs come with chili hot dog sauce served on napkin. Swivel bar stools. Quick service. Servers were less than friendly.

We ate here after touring the Edith Bolling Wilson house next door because we like to try places where locals eat. We love that this place has history. We were looking to be bowled over by the famous skeeter dog. We liked the dogs, but we were not bowled over. The service was friendly. The food was inexpensive and good.... More
