“Real home cooking”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Swiss Steak, Chicken over Biscuits, Meatloaf, Pork Chops and Fried Chicken are the kind of things you'll find at this honest, blue collar diner that hasn't changed one bit from the 1940s. Their concern is to provide “Good Food, at a Reasonable Price” and that customers "Did Not Go Away Hungry” and with those simple maxims, they have built something that will last another 50 years. And of course, the selection of homemade pies is second to none.

The sign outside says it all "Good Food, Home Made Pies"

“One of the last great diner experiences”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

If you want home cooked comfort food that your taste buds will love, your body will crave, then eat here. Its small and very busy but worth the wait. SAVE ROOM FOR THE HOMEMADE PIE!

“Gotta Try It!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I read in a Toledo entertainment magazine while vacationing in the area, that Schmucker's was voted by their readers as the best diner in Toledo. We decided to try it and were glad we did. With so many corporation restaurants located on every corner more or less selling the same prepared foods, Schmuckers's was worth the trip. To learn it's history and see them in action is like watching a choreographed production, oh, and the food is top notch. There's lots of nostalgia and great food to be had. I can't believe the last review was so long ago. By the way, leave room for dessert, the pie is amazing.

This is the best place in town for pie. This place has been in town for years and the food is great as well.
