We were in this area for a family reunion, and this place was the right one to go back in time. You have to remember to adjust your expectations...luncheon offerings included hotdogs four ways and a variety of bagged potato chips...and a variety of icecreams on a stick. And soda in a bottle or tap. So once you determine that... More

We love finding little nostalgic gems like Skeeters! Not a chain and perfect for a quick stop. Friendly gals and the unique red hot dogs were delicious.

It might not be every-man's kind-a-dog, but there's gotta be something going right with a Skeetdog....over 9 million sold! And, the good ole small town family atmosphere is back. Long live the Skeeterdog!!

If you've never had a red hot dog, run, don't walk, to Skeeter's. Absolutely the best hot dogs I've ever eaten. We've been to the Trinkle Mansion B&B 3 or 4 times now, and we always go to Skeeter's when we're in Wytheville. I recommend it highly.

Best hot dogs I've had in a very long time! Close, but not directly off the interstate. Worth the drive. Friendly service. Felt like I went back in time. We'll be back.

I have had many skeeter dogs over the years at this quaint Wytheville eatery. It is like going back into a 1950's diner that hasn't changed. The hot dogs are delicious and you can go with a plain dog or add cheese and chili and you can't go wrong. This is not fine dining, but will take you back to... More

I have never been thru Wytheville and was just driving to NC when I just happen to look over and see this old gem. It was past lunchtime and I gave it not a 2nd thought. Walked in, was greeted by a sweet little old lady and sat down. About 10 seconds looking at the menu I ordered a Skeeter... More

I love this place. My dad has been taking me here since I was very little and I still go when I come up to see family. And now that I have a family for my own I will be taking my children here cause the food is good and I love the place and how historic it is.
