Visitor Tips and News About Hot Dog Bun Museum
The Hot Dog Bun Museum was a lot of fun. So much to look at, and the food that they sell is great. I ate the Moab hot dog -- it was huge. I guess 3 lbs., with chili dog and bun.[Christopher Burks, 08/19/2012]
Pretty cool place![Jeff Wunrow, 06/09/2012]
Behold. The Powerful Buns of Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
The TV series M.A.S.H. brought us to eat at Tony Packo's. We went the first time, back in the early 1980s, after hearing Jamie Farr mention it in one of the episodes. Farr played the oddball character Klinger; both Farr and Klinger hail from Toledo.
The signature "Hungarian hot dog" is very tasty. You can spends lots of time, and risk irritating other patrons, when you lean over their table to see who signed the hot dog buns. Sadly, the M.A.S.H. paraphernalia -- a homage to the show that brought Packo's world wide fame -- is no longer there.[swtrekker, 08/25/2011]
I was amazed by the hundreds of hot dog buns signed by so many famous people at Tony Packo's Cafe. Great dogs, service and gift shop. Pick up a jar of any one of their pickles to take home -- you won't be sorry.[Mari, 05/12/2011]
Tony Packo's Cafe is not only rich in Hungarian history, but the walls are covered in hot dog buns signed by famous people! Not just two, or three. Fifteen hundred of these things, each encased, with its own plaque saying who signed it. Presidents, musicians, actors, etc. A bun for every one. And the food is pretty good too. The restaurant also bottles and sells its pickles and peppers in local grocery stores.[Cristen Bartus, 07/04/2007]
