Name: Tony Packo’s
Food: Hungarian Hot Dogs, chili, pickles & peppers
Where: Toledo, OH
Website: Tony Packo’s
My Opinion: Awesome!

Growing up in Northwest Ohio you know Tony Packo’s. Growing up in my house you definitely know Tony Packo’s. Why do you ask? Oh, it has something to do with the fact that my father is a HUGE fan of M.A.S.H. and the character Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger only mentions Tony Packos almost every episode.

Now here is the skinny on the restaurant. Its walls are decorated with signed hot dog buns and everyone from Bill Cosby, Rosanne Barr, Mr. T and Rick Astley has signed them. There are hundreds of buns. The best part is going around and seeing all the odd people who have visited this Toledo landmark restaurant. When you visit Tony Packo’s you order cafeteria style unless it’s after 4 pm and then they have waiters and waitresses tending the tables.

I tend to order the Tony Packo’s Feast because I like a little of everything. It is one cup of chili, one cabbage roll and one Hungarian dog with mustard, onion, secret sauce and cheese. Delicious! My other half loves their chili mac and I have to agree, it’s pretty awesome. Oh, and a trip would not be complete without an order of deep fried pickles. Does it sound gross? It’s not. I don’t know if that won you over but I swear it’s good.

So are you wondering what a Hungarian hot dog is? Well, I think it tastes like a polish sausage cut in half and grilled on the flat top.  It has a nice casing but the meat is away better than the traditional polish sausage.  I know,  I’m not great at explaining food, but can we just agree that it’s great and you should all run off to Toledo to try it???

Ok now onto the pictures! Oh, and finally, if you want to start this hot dog signing trend in your kitchen you can!

    The chili mac looks amazing! Is it similar to Cincinnati chili? Oooh, I could go for some of that!

    Wow. I actually want to try this… and I hate hot dogs. But I think that Hungarian dog might sway my opinion.

    Oh Tony Packo’s! Here is my Jamie Farr story…I was at the Toledo zoo when I was little, with my parents and brother. We saw Jamie Farr walk right past us and my brother said..”Hey! Mr. MASH!” and Jamie Farr looked back and waved at us! Hooray for memories, lol. I too love a good Packo’s hot dog…I had a hankerin’ the other day on my way to school and had to stop at the little mini Tony Packo’s restaurant in Anderson’s!
