It was supposed to be noted for their hotdogs and they were skinny dyed red hotdogs served in a hand held napkin. On a scale of one to ten these dogs rate a one. Have been there and never have to go back

This little slice of americana was a fun place to stop in and eat! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and you can get a lot of food for just a few bucks. We got a hot dog, piece of pie and a coffee for just $5. They also had 90 cent ice cream cups. If you're driving... More

I love restaurants that have that feel, that you stepped back into another time. Especially when you know that the character comes from a passage of time. The signs were not bought at a store last week, they have been hanging there since before I was born. The hot dogs were good too.

My husband and I grew up in Wytheville and have been eating "Skeeter dogs" since we were in elementary school. We didn't have a cafeteria and we were allowed to walk home or to town (2 blocks) for lunch. They also sold lots of "penny" candy so many times we returned to school wearing wax lips. These hot dogs are... More

Across the street from the Bolling Wilson Hotel. This little restaurant has been around since the early 1900's. It takes you back into a time when things were cheap and good. Not much seating as I think most locals use take-out. Out of town ears and the tourist go for the nostalgia. The menu is great...the prices unbelievable. I ordered... More

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...
