There were six of us. The cabbage roll was very good. I thought the chili was a bit generic (I really like the chili from Packo's that they sell in the grocery stores and I buy it all the time). The chili I got was a bit bland. The fries that come with the fish were good as was the... More

Their hot dogs are too die for! Excellent chilli, cold beer, how could anyone ask for more? The atmosphere is excellent, celebrity signed buns on the walls show why Jamie Farr from MASH made it a national attraction stop!

You simply cannot come to T Town without stopping by Tony's. While the Packos at the Park location near the stadiumhas charm, the original at Front and Consaul is the best! While there are more expensive "fine dining" eateries in town, this represents Toledo at its finest...unpretentious, ethnic, old fashioned and unassuming. What other town is quirky enough to be...

Stopped for a quick bite. Had the hot dog (kielbasa) with a side of spatzle and gravy. Also had the deep fried pickles. Just what I was in the mood for. My friend had the same thing with French fries. Quick service at the bar. The menu is always the same here and the food and service are always good.... More

What else can I say about an old time American immigrant institution such as this. Food is one of a kind. It is definitely another Jewel in the crown of toledo. Made famous by M.A.S.H and loved by all, this is a great place to have a nice comfort food-filled meal.

GREAT Hungarian/Slovak dishes like my Mom and Aunt made when I was a kid. Cabbage rolls like Mom made, possibly could be the same recipie. The food is excellent at all locations but if you are in from out of town, you will want to go to the East Side original location. Hot dog buns signed by all the celebrities... More

Loved the food and the history. MASH was a big part of my life growing up and brings back many memories. Food was awesome comfort type food and very filling. Atmosphere was great and all the history on the walls made it even more enjoyable. Will be back again.

Although I grew up an hour north of Toledo in Detroit, I had never been to Tony Packo's. I had been aware of the place dating back to the days of MASH, but until now I never visited. My girlfriend wanted to check it out on our trip from North Carolina to Michigan so we stopped for lunch on the... More

I am a MASH fan. Very excited to be here. The double dog is actually one dog, if you order the regular dog, you get HALF? I am not a math wiz, but something does not tie, especially when the double dog cost over $5.00. The chili on top was good. But I was expecting more flavors. It's not bad,... More
