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

I have friends who have spoke highly of Tony Packo's over the years but we had never been until now. We all had a different dish and none of us were a bit disappointed. Classic place indeed.

Klinger (Jamie Farr) from M.A.S.H. made this restaurant famous in Toledo. Look for famous signatures on the hotdog buns! The Hungarian noodles and apple dumplings are fantastic, but they're known for their famous hot dogs. Have a Sweet Hot Pickle Pepper with your meal or take a jar home.

We were in a large business group for lunch right after opening. We were a steadily growing table finally amounting to about 12 people. Our server, Jami, was simply outstanding. Very professional, friendly, and accurate, she explained the menu to several Packo's-virgins, didn't confuse anything, kept the drinks and extra items coming, and provided separate, accurate, detailed bills without asking...

Since we were in Toledo we had to try Tony Packo's since it was mentioned in the MASH episodes. My husband has eaten here once before but I hadn't. The hot dogs (hard to explain - kind of like a brat split down the length of it) were very good. Some people expect a true hot dog and these are... More

I got the special dogs with everything on it . They were very good, & a little spicy. The chili was pretty good also. If you're not from the area, you have to try it just to say you have been there. The prices are too bad.

This was a very good sausage / hot dog (not sure what the meat was) but the chili sauce is delicious. it is filling thus you do not have to get the massive dog. The sides are fine. The atmosphere is neat thus walk around and see all the famous visitors and there are many. If you are near Toledo,... More

It was interesting to come here. Heard many promises of the best coney, but it was just ok. It was fun to see signed buns on walls and the waitress was great and friendly, but little slow in service. Dumplings tasted good, but the paprika was just powder from spice rack. My dogs were more like sausage cut in half.... More
