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

I love Tony Packo's ... the paprika dumplings are my favorite! The chili dogs and pickles are fantastic too! I grew up with MASH and had heard of Tony's but never went there. 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

My 10-year old and I had a good late lunch. I had their famous dog with chili and my daughter had their chili cheese fries. We also shared the fried pickles. All of them were good - above average. We ate outside and service was a little slow but friendly. Wish they had local beer. I bought some pickles to... More

This is not fine dining--this is coney dogs and chili--and it was exactly what we were looking for on our long road trip from OH to MN. We chose to make a short detour at Tony Packo's instead of just stopping for fast food and are so happy we did. There is so much nostalgia, fame, and high calorie foods... More

Tony Packo's is a well established hot dog eatery made famous on MASH years ago. The interior has not changed at all since our last visit about 5 years ago. German potato salad, marinated cucumbers and hot dogs with the special sauce all are good. We gathered on Father's Day & although it was a large crowd, the wait was... More

Living near the MI/OH border and watching MASH reruns growing up, I had heard of Tony's before. I can honestly say it was worth the 45min. drive from Michigan! Great Food and amazing atmosphere. Be sure to grab a dog or two, try the chili mac and chase it with a draught beer. Thanks Klingor!

I have been here several times, but it has been over a year since my last visit to this location. I wanted to take some out of town family members to an iconic Toledo restaurant, but probably should have chosen Mancy's or Inky's as Packos was just average as far as the food we had. We all had something differen... More
