My wife and I stopped in Wytheville on our way to Ohio. Stayed at the Bolling Wilson Hotel which is fantastic. Across the street from the hotel is Skeeters. Never heard of it but the sign boast the Worlds Best Hot Dog. Over 9 million sold. Quaint little place with 50's diner appeal. The cook has been there for a... More

Like many other reviewers, we especially enjoyed the 'old time' feeling...it was like stepping back into diners from our past. We had breakfast - tasty biscuits, eggs, country ham, rich sausage gravy, excellent coffee. It was so good we returned at lunch for hot dogs loaded with homemade slaw. The food is not over-the-top extraordinary, but it is definitely good.... More

Food can be good, usually the earlier you get there the better it is later in the day the food has a tendancy to get odd

Got some of the "slaw dogs". Very good, those are the ones with chili mustard onions and slaw. The service was very prompt and the girls working the restaurant were very nice. Prices were decent as well. Would definitely recommend.

If you like hot dogs, these are really good. There are other options on the menu, but they are known and market their hot dogs. I have only eaten hot dogs. It is an old fashioned diner type venue with spinning stools at a counter or tables. Service is fast by a couple of the cutest older ladies and a... More

For years we stopped at Wytheville for gas and food on the trip back from Myrtle Beach. The town has plenty of gas and fast food options, but we were looking for a little more. Skeeters was a nice little stop, only 1.7 miles off the highway and half way to the next exit made it very convenient. We have... More

They are known for the hot dogs but don't bother. They are red hot dogs and horrible. I have been here several times in the decade I have lived here and will never go back.

I got a hot dog to try one and a bunch of barbecue sandwiches to take home. The barbecue is still first rate and a strong recommend. But the hot dog (which I ate immediately)… except for mustard, I got it plain to see whether it’s the hot dog or the toppings that make it so “renowned”. Either I caught... More
