Tony Packos has great Hungarian dogs! Their pickles and peppers are amazing both chilled and deep fried.

We visited early for dinner so we got right in. We parked in their parking lot across the street. They have a little parking behind the restaurant. The inside is well decorated with preserved hot dog buns with famous people's signatures. Interesting restaurant to walk around and look at the walls and then the gift shop. The wife ordered the...

In Toledo for Jeepfest 2016, a relative had recommended Tony Packo's. Wow. This is the restaurant Cpl. Klinger called from South Korea during an episode of M.A.S.H. He was trying to get a takeout order from his favorite hometown restaurant delivered to his unit. It would have been worth the wait. So, this could be a really long review but... More

Made famous by MASH, if you're in the Toledo, Ohio area, you need to visit the iconic Tony Packo's. There's not a lot on the menu so ordering is easy and fast. The ordering process is a bit chaotic with lots of barking out of orders by the crew behind the counter. It just seems to be part of the... More

Service was speeding and the food was delicious. Had the roast beef and mash potatoes. The thing about Packo's is your meal comes to you hot and fresh. Delicious cherry strudel.

Like someone mentioned before me. Not the old Packo's. Chili used to make my face sweat. Not anymore. Plus the size of the bowl has shrunk.

I menu was pretty simple without too many options. The food was good but nothing special in my opinion. The service was good, though.

I took my daughter here on the way to Cedar Point and we enjoyed every bite. I has the chicken papikas and she has roast beef sandwich. The fried pickles were good the cole slaw was not. My chicken was very tender and and the noodles were good. The roast beef was delicious, it reminded me of when I was... More

I was there with my husband and he grew-up in Toledo. He was disappointed with the change in 'hotdog' choices. It is more of a large sausage on a bun now. Their sauce is still quite good. The atmosphere and location is great!!

Thank JCPetz
TonyPacko, Owner at Tony Packo's Cafe, responded to this review

We're very sorry for his disappointment, but please let him know that our "hot dog" has been a Hungarian sausage served on a bun since the 1930s, and we do have an American frank on the menu as an alternative (also for a very long time). Please consider another visit so he can chose the dog that's right for him! More
