We stopped here for a quick lunch on the way to our hotel. It’s a cute little place, in the middle of a cute little town. While the staff was very friendly, they didn’t pay much attention to our order and it wasn’t accurate. I...would have expected a bit more considering the place was not busy. We were not thrilled with the food itself either. The hot dogs were decent but the fries seemed like they were right out of a bag. Perhaps it was just an off day but I I was disappointed in our first time there.More

This place been there forever , It seems. Just a neat little Dinner , With counter and bar stools , few tables. Old signs and all on walls, You just knew You're going to get a Good hot Dog , And You did for many...a year. But Things change, And that looks to be what happen here. I always stopped in , Anytime I was in area & Feb. 8 2020 was one of those times, I new they had changed owners, But didn't know they had changed hot dogs ,The Bun and all where fine, But that was one tough hot dog on that bun! IT WAS TOUGH , Like it had a hide on it tough! I figured new owners found a place to buy some cheap hot dog wiener's. Hopefully They'll figured it out and go back to a better one & They'll be there another 95 years! Selling them Skeeter Dogs!More

Very sorry your experience was not as hoped or expected. Not certain what may have happened that day-the hot dog is the same type and supplier that has been used for many years. So, if your willing, please come back and give us another try!...More

Very good hot dogs & chili. Been there since 1925 and the decor is reflecting that fact. Pleasant staff & atmosphere however does get crowded around lunch,.. as a plus, you can see a giant pencil and paint can on storefronts across the street. Stop...if you’re in the areaMore

These dogs are very tasty at reasonable prices, would recommend for lunch or late night snack, don't recall the hours but I think they closed somewhat early

Server was attentive and my food was in front of me lightning quick; possibly the best slaw dog I’ve ever had, too. It’s in a historic building; next time I hope I have more time to explore, and I hope they have the fryer up...and running so I can get fries and give them five stars. :-)More

You have not had a hot dog until you visit Skeeters. The staff was fantastic and welcoming. The hot dogs will make your taste buds and stomach scream with joy. Visit the amazing place filled with history and have a baby coke and a “Skeeter...Dog” on the red stools at the bar just like generations before you.More

Have to stop and have a world famous Skeeter dog! Little Red wiener on a steamed bun. Good hotdogs. The serve was good and the bathrooms were clean. Great little town on the back roads of America. The Tea was just ok, it was really...strong, not bad, just different than I like. Upstairs is where Mrs. Edith Wilson was born. We didn't go to the museum upstairs.More

Skeeters is a very historical place to eat. It is good food and laid back. The location is convenient as it is right on Main Street in Wytheville, VA. A cool fact about Skeeters is that President Woodrow Wilson's second wife was born in the...upstairs of it.More
