I was in town working and stopped in there one night to try it out for the first time. It's a great place with a lot of history. I'll go there again for sure.

We went to the downtown location. Everything was fantastic. We wanted to try a couple of different things so the waitress let us split several items. Don't miss this place if you are ever in Toledo!

Just fun upbeat pub type food that has the most amazing pickles of all kinds! Ho*tdogs and hungarian specialties like stuffed cabbage and great potato salad. Not a lot on menu for vegetarian but my carnivore friends had lots of great comfort food. I bought several jars of different pickles....they have pickle everything! I did not realize until we were...

We ate here passing through Toledo on a recent road trip. A friend from Toledo recommended it as of the (few) places to eat in Toledo and said it was "classic". Which it is. Apparently it was mentioned in M.A.S.H. a bunch because Jamie Farr's character was from there. Anyway, its known for its hot dogs. I don't really eat... More

Thanks so much, Orchid! Yes, our menu is Hungarian-American, which means it's inspired by traditional Hungarian dishes, but over our eighty-five years has embraced American culture to become what we hope is something truly unique! More

I come from a family of M*A*S*H fans, so when we drove by Tony Packo's on the way to packet pickup for the Fit Family Triathlon in Maumee Bay, we had to stop! It's a fun, touristy sort of place with a great gift shop to memorialize the experience (which we did). Next time though, we'll stop after the race... More

So we went to say we did. Everything was good. German potato salad was really good. Customer service was fantastic. Waitress was great. We asked the gift shop woman a question and she didn't know but she asked owner and he came running out to answer. Menu is somewhat limited but good at what they do

Tony Packo's has several locations around the Toledo area but the local said we have to go to the original, just a few minute trip from downtown. Packo's, made famous by repeated mentions in the "MASH" TV series, lived up to it's kitschy description. The walls are decorated with autographed hot dog buns and, of course, photos from "MASH".

When in the area I have stopped here for years for a great meal. The signed buns are an unique touch. Lot's of famous people have stopped here for a meal. Plenty of parking with very nice people serving everyone.

Driving to Sandusky from DTW with some time to pass, it was a natural to stop at MASH's famous Toledo hot spot. Only a very short distance off I-280, the place was hopping at 4:00 on a Saturday afternoon. If you ever watched MASH, and chuckled at America's (and Toledo's) most famous cross dresser, Jamie Farr...and you have a taste... More

Cafe style so get a tray and order before you get seated.. Great Hungarian food.. If you are looking for a quiet comfort food lunch that will leave you feeling good.. This place is it. and get desert.
