“Cool Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I visit Wytheville every summer and go to skeeters 3 to 5 times on my visit. The building is very cool and the Hot Dogs taste very good.

“Average Hot Dog”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We had read about Skeeter’s on TA and wanted to try what one person said was the closest thing to WV hot dogs as it gets. They close at 5:30 pm and we arrived at 5:25 pm. They didn’t seem to mind, as we ordered hot dogs to go. Skeeter’s is located in a very old building with old fashioned counter and stools, something out of the 50s. The people working there were nice. As far as the hot dog, I would say it was average and not very close to a WV hot dog.

pletzkeb,
Good afternoon. We are excited that you stopped by to compare a Skeeter's "World Famous Hotdog" against a WV hotdog. A WV hotdog is tough competition but we are very found of our Skeeter Dogs! We look forward to you coming back again soon.

“Skeeter's World Famous Hotdogs????”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

If the hot dogs are world famous, I have absolutely no idea why. I get better hot dogs at Costco and Sam's Club - and they are cheaper. The atmosphere and decor inside the restaurant is truly historic and does take one back in time. Very interesting signs and antiques to look at. The old ice cream freezer still works too. Glad I stopped there, but I was disappointed with the hot dog and I thought they were over-priced. Wouldn't go back but would certainly recommend it for someone who wants to take a step back in time and look around in there.

MargAnneL,
Good afternoon. We are glad that you stopped by Skeeter's in Downtown Wytheville, VA to try a Skeeter Dog! We are disappointed that your order wasn't yummy as we work hard to ensure they always are coming off the cooking counter. Skeeter's have served up "Dogs" the same way since 1920, we will see what happened this past Saturday. We work hard to keep costs down so our customers will come back to see us often!

We hope that you will come back to give Skeeter's "World Famous Hotdogs" another shot!

“Hmmmm!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Suppose to be the best hot dogs around. Went there last year and was not very pleased with them. Don't know whether they were bad ones or what but I have had better cheaper ones that the ones we had that day, family/In-laws say they won't eat there again.

Sam P,
Our goal is to serve everyone a great hot dog (or two, three or four!) and are disappointed that this was not the case when you joined us in February of 2012. We hope that you and your family/in-laws will come back to enjoy a "World Famous" Skeeter Dog with us!
