So Many Tony's to Choose

This is the home of Tony's Steak Sandwich, and the piles of bacon breakfast! Prices have crept up over the last few years but it is still a value for the quality and quantity of food. So if you have a craving for old school diner style food this is a great stop, oh and don't forget their Sundae... read more

The "steak" sandwich is really more like a burger on really good bread. Be sure to get the pizza sauce & cheese + mushrooms. Also try the deep fried cauliflower - very tasty

The food at this location is still tasty, but the waitstaff/kitchen has become very disorganized. Food comes out a different times, mixed up orders, running out of food. A recent takeout order of two burgers and a small nacho took almost 60 minutes, 40 of which were spent in the store repeating my order three times and the kitchen burning... More

Every time I'm in the Tri-City area: this is the place that must be visited! I have never had a bad meal here ever. The Wop salad, to me, is what their steak sandwich is to most people: utterly irresistible. This is the best Italian salad I've eaten in my life, so far, but there was that one salad in... More

All I'll say is be sure to try the fish and chips dinner - it's the best! If you order during the week you get a better time on takeout orders.

We ate here for breakfast. For 6.50 I received 3 eggs, 3 very large pieces of toast, about 6 strips of bacon, and pancakes (though they let me substitute french toast). It was a LOT of food for what I paid for. The only downfall was the amount of time it took to get our food for what you expect... More

★☆☆☆☆ Just left the Tonys on State St. My husband and friend ordered a breakfast sandwich with sausage and bacon. Both sandwiches came out without bacon. Our waitress who was awesome mentioned it to the cook and the cook began to share his opinion as loudly as possible. Other patrons heard him and even asked our waitress what was wrong... More

We live in bay City and my wife insists that we drive to Tony's on State. Pizza is really good. Never had a meal we did not have leftovers. There are so many Tony's in this area , but we like this one the best.(nothing against the others they are awesome too).

When retuning home for a visit a must have for us is a Tony's steak sandwich, grilled w/ pizza cheese and sometimes mushrooms with onion rings! The portions are HUGE and the pricing is very low. Wish they could ship these to us!

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
