The building itself and store is nostalgic and may be worth going into, but I can't recommend the hot dogs as being something special.

If you're in the city and you like hotdogs, you gotta go to Skeeter's. Very crowded, so we knew they were good. Cheap eats. Hot dogs are very red, I don't even want to know what that's all about. Yummy slaw and chili is standard.

Thank you for the great review.! The red in the weiner is nothing more than a red dye.!! It was stated that people thought it tasted better with the red dye so it has been left..The cole slaw is homemade here at the restaurant.. Looking forward to your next review More

Lots of local history here. We visited on the 4th of July and the place was hopping! We missed the hotdog eating contest, but enjoyed a red dog on a steamed bun, with chili and onion. A classic!

The staff was very nice, but the food was not. It does have a nostalgic atmosphere, but not really worth it considering the food quality.

Hubs didn't think we should review Skeeter's because we didn't try their hot dogs. We were there for breaky and it was an excellent breaky. I guess they don't know Hubs and that he would order hot dogs for his early meal. The portion size was large and fueled us for our 3 hour drive home. They are closed on... More

looks like skeeters is under new management, and has lost lots of its old time charm. lots of things off the walls, the big push is on "umbergers", soft ice cream, and slurpees. the young staff kept asking if everything is ok, etc, just like the overly attendant waitresses at any chain restaurant. it just doesn't fit in skeeters, which...
