We had given Skeeters a rest for over a year since we quit eating meat and had a disappointing shrimp taco one trip. Recently tried meeting a friend there midweek and saw they'd added both tuna and salmon plates while we'd been away. The tuna, grilled medium, was amazing. Never thought of having it with pico de gallo, but it... More

My family drove by and wanted to check this place out, and what a disappointment! It was Sunday shortly after 12pm and although the place was about half-full, we waited about 30 minutes to get our food.

My favorite is the Baja Shrimp taco, comes with nachos. One is enough for me because it is big. The chicken burger is my husband's favorite, but the hamburger is good too.

Newly remodeled but still serving great family favorites like burgers, fajitas, salads and baked potatoes. Great drinks too. Best value is the baked potato with fajita beef. A full meal that doesn't cost a lot. Only thing to keep in mind is that this place is a favorite with kids sports teams so expect lots of loud kids and coaches... More

I frequent Skeeters on a monthly basis. Our favorite restaurant. Food is exceptional, portions are large and atmosphere is great. Only recommendation is to get through customer's orders faster and have the 2nd register ready to go on peak times. Other than the aforementioned, I highly recommend his place!!!

I had been given good reviews about this place. So my wife and I recommended this place for our soccer team. We all went there for brunch. The place dos not feel clean The buffet was not inviting. Overall - we will not return.

We had an appointment in the same shopping center as Skeeter's so stopped by for lunch. We have always enjoyed their burgers which are freshly cooked to order. Onion rings are also excellent. I asked the cashier what he recommended. Of course the burgers, but then he recommended fish tacos as well. This is the first time I've tried fish... More

There must be a reason why so many families keep visiting this restaurant... and after driving by it for several months, my wife and I decided to give it a try. Most of the small restaurants in this area are mediocre. This one was a nice surprise. Burgers, salads, fajitas, combos; the menu is a basic combination of favorite American... More

The burgers are pretty good and offer varieties, fahitas were pretty good also. You get served pretty fast and sit on picnic tables. They serve beer in Aluminum Tubs on ice.

Good food, fun atmosphere, nice folks. You can catch a game here, have a drink, and enjoy company. The kids have a small arcade they can play in. There is a tiny, outside eating area. They serve a Sunday brunch (all-you-can-eat) which we enjoy. The smoke from the smoker greats you in the parking lot and gets your mouth watering.... More
