The food was average for a small diner. Pizza crust was good but greasy top. The steak sandwich is the special and doesn't disappoint. We were a table of 4 and all our food came out at different times. Waitress apologized several times. It took over 45 minutes to get our complete order. Pricing was good. Small place, so if... More

Beat nachos in a big package! Couple of us ate them and still had some to take home. Obviously not fine dining but good food at good price with wonderful staff.

A few reviews ago it was stated that there are only four Tony's in Saginaw, there are actually seven Tony's in Saginaw. They are on State Street, Gratiot and Brockway, Fashion Square, East Genesee, South Michigan, Center and Gratiot and Shields. Out of the seven Tony's in Saginaw only three of them are good. The one on Gratiot and Brockway... More

we Visited Tony's located by Fashion Square Mall for a great breakfast (if you area bacon lover don't miss a Tony's breakfast) and Tony's located on Gratiot for their well known steak sandwich. Both were very clean, wait person great and prices reasonable.

Having grown up in Saginaw, I was spoiled with being able to enjoy Tony's whenever I wanted.. after moving away from the town, many years ago, whenever I make it back I ALWYS stop back. Grilled steak sandwich with pizza cheese...very few sandwiches can compare in the area.

I will never grow tired of a grilled steak and cheese with sautéed onions and sauce. It's one of life's happy moments. Mix it in with a bag of onion rings and an ice tea and you have a good day. Service has changed here a little bit, or maybe I'm just getting old, but those who have eaten a... More

They're all good but there are four different Tony's in Saginaw and none are by the same owner anymore. So try one then try the other three you'll find they're pretty darn good! Try the Steak Sandwich with pizza cheese and mushrooms with an order of Onion rings, but you better be hungry!!

This is an old family fav. My brothers b-day spot when is was young. He would get spaghetti & meatballs (they would give him his age plus one) I like the Chicken Parm. Tony's is a family neighborhood joint with good old fashion Italian food.

THis resturant used to have the best Chicken Noodle soup! I got some last night and the noodles were much, and it looked like they just throw in all their garbage. I had a few chunks of tomato which is odd for chicken soup and also an unpeeled carrot not even chopped up. I won't be going back anytime soon....
