Beat nachos in a big package! Couple of us ate them and still had some to take home. Obviously not fine dining but good food at good price with wonderful staff.

“childhood memory”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

we Visited Tony's located by Fashion Square Mall for a great breakfast (if you area bacon lover don't miss a Tony's breakfast) and Tony's located on Gratiot for their well known steak sandwich.
Both were very clean, wait person great and prices reasonable.

“Always stop back when in town”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Having grown up in Saginaw, I was spoiled with being able to enjoy Tony's whenever I wanted.. after moving away from the town, many years ago, whenever I make it back I ALWYS stop back. Grilled steak sandwich with pizza cheese...very few sandwiches can compare in the area.

“Sad to say, think its losing a step”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I will never grow tired of a grilled steak and cheese with sautéed onions and sauce. It's one of life's happy moments. Mix it in with a bag of onion rings and an ice tea and you have a good day. Service has changed here a little bit, or maybe I'm just getting old, but those who have eaten a Tony's Steak and Cheese know what I'm talking about when you haven't had one in a while. It takes you back to being a kid, of good times and no worries. Only problem, our cardiologists would probably frown on us eating this now. Came here with my wife and daughter, they aren't from Saginaw so didn't understand. She had the spaghetti and thought the noodles were overcooked. Salad is just basic mixed greens. Bread is always amazing. Daughter had a burger and said was just a burger. Both agreed that the steak sandwich was the bomb!! Will always come back, even if it is without them. Perfect place with family, on your own, a date, (not on a diet) old or young. And, even if you aren't hungry, pop in and try one of the Sundaes, definitely worth it.

“Tony's but which one?”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

They're all good but there are four different Tony's in Saginaw and none are by the same owner anymore. So try one then try the other three you'll find they're pretty darn good! Try the Steak Sandwich with pizza cheese and mushrooms with an order of Onion rings, but you better be hungry!!
