I have never been a huge Tony Packo's fan. It is ok. I just do not think that it is as good as it used to be. Chili mac, its ok. Chili dog, its ok. Chicken paprikash, its ok. The name in my opinion gives...More

Hot dogs are indeed very good. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Three reasons to go. Be aware it's not a three star Michelin restaurant neither. For example the soup served with the hot dog is highly uninteresting.

Thanks, Eric. The cool thing is that we have several great sides to compliment our main entrees - you don't have to just have the soup! :)

So while in Toledo we got alot of people stating Tony Packos was a place to check out. I often comment on the steak houses but thought a hotdog place would be something new. Positives- Place is neat - seating was good - small tables...More

Thanks for the in-depth review, Ranger - although we're known for our Hungarian hot dog, we have other great dishes that may tickle you fancy more than the dog. Can you stop back and give 'em a try? here's hoping! Salut!

Tony Packo's is famous for their hot dogs. I highly recommend trying one. I also got coleslaw and chili with my dog. I enjoyed everything. I think my favorite is the fried pickles. My kids had mac n cheese. They both thought is was okay,...More

If you are ever in Toledo, do yourself a favor and stop at Tony Packo’s!!!! The “feast” is a beast, with a chili dog, a cup of chili and a cabbage roll. Couldn’t finish but wasn’t for lack of trying.

I have never reviewed a restaurant in my entire life but I feel very inclined to do so. First off I'd like to say they have some fantastic tasting chili dogs and chili. For a good price too. However coming from Hungarian Americans who have...More

Anyone who has watched enough episodes of M*A*S*H knows of Tony Packo's. So when you are in Toledo, you have to go by here and see if Cpl. Klinger was right about Packo's food, or if he was just blowing smoke. In my lowly opinion...More

Hello and thank you! We are warmed at heart for your kind words! Just one clarification, though, for anyone who might read your review: we don't serve goulash :)

Famous from tv’s MASH this is the ultimate Hungarian food joint. Not fussy or fancy, just delicious home style food. The BEST chili dog ever!! You’ll love the celebrity autographs on hot dog buns!

Quickly seated and when mentioned that we were somewhat in a hurry with little time, our waitress quickly took our orders and expedited the process. Very good experience
