We came here thinking it'd be regular "dog". What we got was some type of sausage cut in half. If you're into polish type of food it would be ok. I won't be coming back. It was also quite pricey for what we ordered.

this place has so much character- the food is great with a very diverse menu- seeing the signed hot dog buns by celebrities is cool also- I like to visit there gift shop,I usually purchase the pickles and peppers which are a personal favorite- A Toledo must see

I have not been here in a while but used to go after all the mud hen games. They have always had the best sausage and dogs. I just wish we could get them here in tx,but these rednecks do not know what good sausage is.

The restaurant has changed a lot since my last visit 20 years ago and not for the good. The title of the review says it all. Overrated, overpriced hotdog joint with medium quality food and small portions relative to the price. Sorry unimpressed. Won't be back.

If you are close enough that you are thinking of going, GO! It's fun and seeing the signed hotdogs is a once in a lifetime thrill. The food is great and they love "not from around here" people! You will enjoy adding this to your things to do in Toledo list. It SHOULD be a long list! Have fun, be... More

Everyone should make at least one stop to Tony Packos in their life. It's a must. Just to check out the place's ambiance and noted celebrity signed "buns" mounted on the walls and to taste the "pigs in the blanket" and sausage "hot dogs". Well worth the side-stop if you're in Toledo.

I have been to Tony Packo's several times and have enjoyed it. Well this time, I have to admit that I was disappointed in the cost vs. portion of food. I love their Chicken Paprikash and told a friend how great it was. We ordered and did got our entrée first and then was asked if we got our salad.... More
