The title of my review says it all, I think. Enjoyed breakfast, especially the made-from-scratch biscuits. Did not have the hot dogs--maybe next time.

I do really like hotdogs but these were just ok. Looked like they had added red coloring. Husband had macaroni salad and he said it was awful. Nice people though.

We had the pleasure of visiting Wytheville, VA and are so glad we had a "hankering" for a hot dog as we were sightseeing downtown! Skeeters is like walking into the past with its old-fashioned lunch counter, BUT the highlight of deciding to eat there was choosing the "Works Dog!" It was new to me that there actually exists 'RED'... More

We visited Skeeter's for lunch on the way home during a roadtrip from Virginia. The café was easy to find, as the directional signs were all along the main road in to Wytheville. There is street parking nearby or in front of the restaurant. When you enter Skeeter's, it is self seating. The wait staff are friendly, and they attended... More

We ate at Skeeter's for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was very good -- my husband and I had pancakes, grits, eggs, and hash browns between us. It was served promptly and with a smile. When we ate for dinner, we tried the hot dogs. They were good also. The place is very informal but wonderfully decorated. You really cannot... More

I loved the skeeter dog. I was kind of shocked they didn't have French fries or onion rings on the menu. I felt like something was missing because of it. The hot dogs though is what they are known for...so based on that I gave it a 4. The slaw and chili were really good! I would eat there again.

Okay, this ain't fancy food. We stopped in for a late lunch and the Skeeter Dogs. Yep, they are good old-fashioned red wienies on a bun with mustard, onions, and chili. For what they are, and the very low price, it don't get any better than this. For a good, cheap lunch, Skeeter's can't be beat.

You can't cruise through this town and NOT stop by Skeeters for a Skeeter-dog. It's a quick stop when you fill up and easy access back to I-77 or I-81. And the price?! How else are you going to beat that and you're putting money back into a sweet little town! Love my skeeter-dogs with chili, ketchup, mustard, and chopped... More

The service was good and the decor was very interesting but the food was disgusting. The place reeked of old grease and the sunny side up eggs I had tasted of old grease. I could not get past the old grease taste to even taste the egg. My husband had grits and they were the consistency of school paste. Not... More
