Nice Visit

The chili and hot dogs were very good. It's Tony Packo's you have to get chili and dogs. The service was excellent and the waitress was very attentive. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend after a great Mud Hens game.

You pretty much know what you're getting. The chili is fantastic, the dogs are very good, and the service and atmosphere are great.

Been many times and have always enjoyed but last time something felt different. It seems like the prices went up. Had the stuffed cabbage with hot potato salad and the food is still tasty. Especially enjoyed the apple strudel after dinner. The place is still neat to visit with all of the nostalgia and signed hot dog buns. Service was... More

Service was very good and the food was excellent. The waitress was very helpful in helping us choose what we wanted. The Roast beef dinner was very good. The chili and mac + cheese was tasty. Fried Pickles are good - my first time eating a fried pickle and I actually enjoyed it. Mozarella sticks actually had cheese inside (I... More

The service was great. We ordered chili dogs, fries, and chili. All were good and what you would expect. I would not say they were great, just... More

We were delighted to find a parking space at the very busy lunch hour on a Saturday. Parking is in a small lot behind the restaurant and also in a lot directly across the street (next to the gas station). We were seated immediately. Shirley, our server, greeted us quickly to take our drink order. Shirley was very pleasant, friendly,... More

First time visit and I was expecting only hot dogs but it is so much more. We highly recommend the cabbage rolls and German potato salad. Chicken and hot dogs were good too. Fun place to eat.
