Tony Packos of "MASH" TV FAME, is a great place to eat. The walls are lines with autographed hotdog buns signed by everyone from Presidents to Big Bird!! It is fun to wander through the place and see them. Their packos dogs with chili sauce are the best, love the chicken paprikas too!! And don't forget the famous Packo pickles!!... More

Always loved my moms "Tony Packo's" cabbage roll recipe, so when we drove by the place on the way to Maumee Bay, and I noticed how busy it was, I thought we shouldn't miss it, while in Toledo. After a great day at the park, we hit Tony Packo's on the way back. Disgusting! The cabbage roll was not worth... More

I grew up on Tony Packo's and they are still as great as they were then. We've been visiting the location downtown for the past couple of years when we come through. Great service and great food. Heather was super today!

Stopped by Tony Packo's with business colleagues. A few were unsure about the menu at first glance, but everyone found something delicious to eat and all were quite pleased with their meals! Save room for strudel or cookies for dessert!

Stopped for lunch at about 3PM as they were switching from cafeteria style to table service on Thursday 10 July with 5 friends. Four decided to sit at a table and two at the bar – I was told the bar prices are a bit cheaper and there are specials. Two of my table mates ordered the MOAD – Mother... More

Been a while since I ate at Packo's (10 years), and it was great to return and find that nothing had changed. Same wonderful flavors from the same menu. Nice to be able to count on something in an ever-changing world, and Packo's is holding fast to its traditions. The dogs, the German potato salad, the cabbage rolls are just... More

I live in Columbus, Ohio, BUT if I am ever within 30 minutes of Packo's, I will drive out of my way to eat there. It's so great to eat food that is not only different, but spectacular. First went there because Klinger on M*A*S*H* would always mention it, but after my first trip, I became a loyal follower. The... More

Then I met a man from Toledo who grew up with Tony's! Match made in ... somewhere :) Now we get up there often and bring home... More
