We went to Toledo just to go to this restaurant for my husband's birthday. It was on his bucket list due to M.A.S.H. We had a good time, the food was good and everyone was nice. We would go again for sure.

The chicken paprikash is the delicious with the sweet hots pickels and peppers. Tony Packo's is a must try for sure.

I had heard about this place from a couple different people. We were in town and decided we needed to have the experience. Great decision! The hot dogs with chili sauce was fantastic! The German potato salad was phenomenal! I would highly recommend this place....More

This was my first trip to Toledo with my partner. He's always talked about Packo's, so it was time to try it. Great atmosphere, and excellent food!! Comfort food for sure. Very affordable, and lick your plate delicious.

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!
