From what I hear, Tony Packo’s has some great Hungarian specialties, like stuffed cabbage, and chicken paprikas, but my wife and I came here for the famous Packo’s Hungarian hot dogs, and we weren’t disappointed. Not only does the dog have its own special taste, but the “famous sauce” topping the meat---along with mustard and onions---gives this sandwich a whole... More

Being a native Toledoan, I've eaten at Tony Packo's plenty of times. The restaurant is always busy and the food is top notch. I'm a big chili dog eater and there are none better than those at Packo's. The signed hot dog buns on the walls are points of interest as well as the food. Movie stars, sports figures, anybody...

Stopped here for lunch on my way to Detroit. I used Tripadvisor to help pick the place to eat. Thank you all! This location is right across from the Toledo Mudhens ball park so I would check their schedule before heading over. I imagine it gets pretty busy on a game day. When we arrived we were given the choice... More

Ever since watching Mash, I have always wondered if there really was a Tony Paco's. restaurant. Well, there is and boy am i glad. Waitresses do not come to your table. You are handed a menu at the table and your on your own. Pick what you want, go to the front, order it, and wait. This restaurant was empty... More

I came. I ate. I was fulfilled as always! Tony Packo's is a can't miss restaurant. It has been there since the ancient times of ever and I hope, in my lifetime, will never become extinct along with other Toledo favs. It is on my must list whenever I return to my old homestead. My repeated meal is the chili... More

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!
