The atmosphere of this restaurant is absolutely fantastic and the food matches it. Lunch was a throw back to times past and worth the trip off the highway to explore. Well worth a visit for a hot dog and a coke.

Visited in August 2017 on a hot day and starving! We had 2 of the "world famous" hotdogs with chips and a Pepsi and it was one of the best dogs I've ever eaten! Would highly recommend Skeeter's to anyone who loves a good hotdog!

When you are 100 feet from one of the greatest hotdog places non Earth, You go! Fast and friendly service and a great couple of dogs, and a Coke. Make sure that you stop bye there. It's a great piece of Americana and good food.

Saw this great place from our hotel middle of downtown. Could not resist! Had breakfast AND a world famous hot dog. Lingered a while just to converse with staff and soak up the atmosphere. A highlight of our road trip.
