Stopped for a quick hotdog and drink and dessert in the middle of the afternoon. Sat at the bar and got quick and pleasant service. We got a hotdog with everything (which includes chili sauce) and an apple dumpling. We stopped here because a friend...More

Great dogs and more with hundreds of celebrity signed hot buns in cased and hanging on the wall. The menu is limited but everything tastes great. They also sell hot dogs, chili, peppers, pickles and sauces so you can cook the dogs at home.

I have been familiar with Tony Packo's for 40 years and returned recently with out-of-town friends. It is still a fun celebrity destination but the food is not great. I recommend that you stop in for a drink and maybe an appetizer and take a...More

Thanks in large part to the TV show "MASH", this is a 'must try' when in Toledo ... but only the original East Side location. The Hungarian hot dog is delicious, the people are friendly and the atmosphere is a pleasant step back in time.

I have been stopping at Tony Packos for many years on my way though Toledo. It has been the only thing that would make me stop in Toledo. I had the gluttonous MOAD and my wife had the stuffed sausage combo. It was as good...More

It is always quick service. My husband loves the hot dogs but a little spicy for me. I love the chili. They are building a new restaurant in Maumee. Can't wait to go there. Pickles and peppers are so good.

This place is a must! It's a staple in Toledo & the original location is by far their best location! We love the fried Packo's pickles, chicken paprikash & of course their dogs (MOAD to be exact)!

I do not have any medical issues with gluten, that I know of, so this topic was not even on my radar. Calling them would definitely be your best option. Enjoy!
