Memorable | One of the Best
Review by: Roadfood Team
Tony Packo’s represents Toledo in a way that no other restaurant does, or even can. Started in 1932, Tony Packo’s has grown into a local icon. Popularized by Jamie Farr’s numerous mentions of it on the long-running television series “MASH,” Tony Packo’s Hungarian hot dogs are a must-try dish. There are multiple locations around Toledo but the best of them is at 1902 Front Street.
The atmosphere is very laid-back and comfortable. It is a popular lunch hang-out for the downtown crowd. Lining the walls are plastic-encased hot dog buns, signed by famous visitors to Tony Packo’s, a practice begun with Burt Reynolds in 1976. In the back of the restaurant is a little gift shop where you can purchase their famous canned pickles and chili as well as shirts, aprons, and various other items.
