If you are in Wytheville, do not miss this place. It opened in 1925 and was probably last remodeled in the 1950's. You can eat at the counter or at a table. The old soda machine and fixtures brought this 78 year old memories of his childhood. The open at 7:30 am for breakfast and offer breakfast, fantastic hot dogs... More

The atmosphere is neat, but everything else was terribly average. I expected better from a place that calls themselves, "World Famous."

I really like the atmosphere of Skeeters, and find the employees extremely friendly and helpful. However the hot dogs are very disappointing. In good conscious I can not reccomend their food. Eating here is more of a novelty not a treat...

"Skeeters World Famous Hot Dogs" is unique and nostalgic, with really tasty slaw dogs and BBQ. No they don't have french fries, but I'm not complaining since chips go better with dogs anyway. And I would prefer my hotdog being served on a paper plate as opposed to just a thin napkin, but I understand this is tradition. The place... More

We found ourselves at Skeeter's during a travel stop. Dogs were great, chili great, etc. but not at all old fashioned about prices. I had a measly $5 BLT which was served on an actual plate, which was better than my husband's messy chili hot dogs that were served on ONE napkin which the waitress sat on the counter (weird)....

We stopped in during a road trip. We heard that they served red hot dogs which is a staple in our area of NC so we decided to try it.

You step into Skeeters, and you step back in time. The atmosphere alone is worth a visit, but the Skeeter Dogs actually are sinfully good. You can't have just one.
