Tony Packo's has great atmosphere with very good food and excellent service. Take a look at all of the famous people that have visited the restaurant. Signed hot dog buns are all around the restaurant.

This is a local favorite. The Hungarian sausage is great. Going around and seeing all the famous names that have signed hotdog buns is fun too.

The food was amazing! I loved the fried pickles, but I didn't realize they included fried peppers and ate one by accident. Great hotdogs and the mac and cheese was exquisitely flavored. I love how the whole kitchen is this kind of controlled chaos as...More
