I had never been here even though I've been on that road 100 times. We were in from TN and stopped. I have to say they have the best hot dogs I've had since I was a kid. It was sloppy goodness in every bite.

The owner is 88 years old and been in business since 1952. She is very friendly and the hotdogs are out of this world. Best ever.

The place is very run down and dirty looking.... More

Just had a hot dog and it was a disgusting mess! All toppings were in the sack bag and not on the dog. Not served in paper tray. Never again! No where near good enough! Yukky mess!

It just seems that no matter where you go or where you eat, if you want a West Virginia hotdog, you have to get it in West Virginia. If you're going to have a hotdog in WV, it's got to be Skeenies. Same location, same friendly faces, same great hotdogs. The dogs here have been the same for ever. Got... More
