We met family here when all of us we're in town for a marathon. It has a very laid-back atmosphere and if you like Eastern European food obviously you love it here. The best fried pickles I've ever had! My in-laws of Polish decent had so much fun. The service was great and we had a good time browsing the... More

Had lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. convenient parking across the street free for customers. The coney dog was excellent, have not had one in years. Chicken chili was very good. Service was very friendly, just a bit slow.

Been there about a thousand times! Packo dogs are not hot dogs. They are like a sausage dog. Chili, cheese, and onions, YEA!

Consistent fine food with a friendly fun atmosphere. Love the various hotdog entrees. Chicken paprikash brings back pleasant memories of ethnic childhood

Packos is a toledo tradition, but I definitely wouldn't keep going if it wasn't also amazingly tasty! The chili dogs are so different than a traditional chili dog. The dog is a Hungarian sausage and it's divine!!

Eastside location is a Toledo hallmark. I recommend this place. Parking sucks but still go. It's worth it. And if you have seen my other reviews then you know I tell it like it is.

Had the Hungarian style hot dogs that were delicious. Two hot dogs with homemade thick chili, onions, and mustard with German style potato salad and a cup of their homemade chili, and it all was very good. The restaurant is a coney dog style with good food. The chicken was served on a bed of small homemade pasta that was... More

A most unusual fun place full of atmosphere. The signed buns are the main attraction with over 1000 covering the walls. You have to see it to believe it. Friendly service and noisy. Hot dogs are the main attraction but the sausage chicken dumpling soup and the onion rings are great quality. They tend to over do the pickle servings... More

Highlight of trip to Toledo is to stop at the famous Tony Packo's. I love the deserts but my family wants the Hungarian hot dogs with the chili. The pickles are great too. Check out the signed hot dog buns on the wall by famous people who have gone there.
