The Packo Hot Dog is one of many foods that people go to enjoy. When I first visited their East Side restaurant fourty five years ago, we enjoyed the Friday night band with our meals. Always looked forward to the Hungarian Hamburg served there. When ever friends or relatives come to town, we head to one of the Packo's restaurants.... More

You have heard Cpl Klink mention Packo's on MASH. The food is great. The building walls are decorated with some famous people. When you get your food grab some pickles and sauce to go. You won't be sorry. You might even spot Jamie Farr eating in there. :)

You won't leave hungry! The atmosphere was fun and quaint. The food was quality! The hot dogs are fresh and snap. Make sure you pick up some pickle popcorn in the cute gift store. A great restaurant with good quality and reasonable prices.

Every time I go I try to take someone that has never been here. Once again my guest enjoyed it! We had the Packo's Feast with a bowl of chili to start. Even though the place was packed as usual, service was great and the food was perfect. Once I finished I decided to have a double dog too! And... More

Had the combination plate- Chilli, hot dog covered with chilli and cheese, a huge cabbage roll and some fried pickles on the side. Everything was really good, too much to eat at one sitting. My friend enjoyed the chicken paprikash. Lunch is served at the kitchen line, than you carry your food tray to whatever table you like. Nice and... More

I ate at Tony Packo's last week while in Toledo, because it is one of my Dad's favorite restaurants; it was great! As a vegetarian, I didn't order a hot dog; but, the Mac & Cheese that I ate was some of the best I have ever tasted! The french fries, mozzarella sticks, and bread pudding for dessert were also...

As a big fan of Hot Dogs, I like to think of Packo"s Original Hot Dog as being in a class by itself. It is a Hungarian Hot Dog after all, more of a Keilbasa type sausage. My first time at the restaurant, I went with the Original, and I would suggest everyone do the same! It comes with light... More

Tony Packo's has excellent food. It is great to go somewhere that you can get unique selections like cabbage rolls, chicken paprikash, unique sausages and chili and several other things. Their food is great and the cafeteria style line moves quickly at lunch time. Previously, I have been there for table service at dinner time. It is such a unique... More

We stopped in last night while in town for the first time in several years, and was pleased to see the place is still AMAZING. Great, unique food in a fantastic, tradition rich atmosphere. Place looks the same as it must have in 1932 when it opened. The fried Hungarian pickles and peppers are a must. The chili and hot... More
