We stopped on our way through Toledo. Food was good as always. This is a tradition in Toledo and we all originally heard of it from Klinger on MASH as many did. They never disappoint. Hasn't changed in years, but why mess with a good thing.

The Toledo institution for sure. The place is aging but it's still Tony Packo's. We stopped for old times sake for dinner. It was good to be back again....

Heard a lot about Tony Packo's before we traveled to Toledo, so it was a must on the restaurant list. The staff was great, the food was good. My favorite thing to eat was the cucumber salad. I could've eaten it again and again and again. Definitely worth trying if you are in the area.

I've eaten at Tony Packo's many times as I have family in the area. Each time has been an enjoyable meal in a unique setting. Packo's is located in an old building with lots of character. But the setting is overshadowed by the food. Not fancy, just delicious. At my latest meal at Packos', I had the single dog combo,... More

i had to have a few tests done in a Toledo, so we decided we should go to Tony Packos for lunch. We rolled in and ordered at the lunch counter. If you haven't eaten lunch there before it is a little confusing with the counter at lunch. We ordered and sat down. I had the paprikas noodles and cucumber... More

Dinner is good there I love the Packo dogs. Lunch time is the best time to go. Parking can be a pain. Original restaurant is not in the best part of town so be mindful.
