Thought we would try a famous name for lunch. The food was good though a little on the pricey side. The German potato salad was excellent. My wife had the cabbage roll which she liked but a small serving. I was surprised that my hot dog was a half (split length wise), and unsure why but good.

Thanks for the review! The "dog" is a sausage split down the middle according to a tradition of ours that goes back to the 1930s and the Great Depression. The split Packo's dog weighs the same as a full American frank. More

Being a M*A*S*H fan, I always wondered what was so great about Tony Packo’s Hungarian hot dogs that Max Klinger (played by Toledo’s Jamie Farr) raved about in several episodes. On a recent trip to Milwaukee, we stayed overnight in Maumee, Ohio and there was one of Packo’s five locations about a mile from our hotel. This location, inside huge... More

We like to eat here if we are shopping at Anderson's Maumee Store at lunchtime. Service is cafeteria-style...you go through a line and place your order, pick it up, pay at the register and carry your tray to a table. Preparation is very fast and you do not wait long for anything. Staff is friendly and efficient and prices are... More

On business here in Maumee, read online about Tony Packo's, had some chili, and a Hungarian hot dog, was told by the employee, that the "hot dog" is a sausage, very good taste and great sauce. They do have regular hot dogs as well. Would eat here again.

Ok so I ate at the packos by the park for lunch and on my way back to Cleveland I had the hot dog with meat sauce and ate the most amazing cherry strudel! Then I got two strudels and two chicken paprikas to go. Has one last night with a beer in my home. Heaven!! Not as nice as... More

We'd eat there several times. Not many choices but in a good quality of food. Although they are a fast food place., the dinning area need to remodeling into a brighter and colorful; looks happier .

Tony Packo calls them Hungarian hot dogs, I call them sausages. Either way, they are very tasty. You've got to try them if your in the greater Toledo area. Google Tony Packo Klinger. I didn't realize how many references there are to Tony Packo's on the TV show MASH.

Passing Maumee/Toledo a few years ago, we stopped at the Tony Packo's in The Anderdons in Maumee because it was more convenient for our travel route than the other locations. We wanted to try it due to its notoriety from the TV series M.A.S.H. We were very impressed with several of the offerings, we now schedule driving through the area... More

It may not be for you. . But if it is, yumm it up and enjoy what us locals have enjoyed for years. . This satellite location certainly lacks the charm of the original, but the dogs are the same... come with an open mind, leave hooked or not. . P.S. ICE CREAM here too
