Tony Packo's' lender is trying to foreclose on the Toledo restaurant made famous by the character Max Klinger on M*A*S*H.

This could be a travesty if this true landmark restaurant closed.  Say it isn't so!

Based on this story it sounds like things are extremely messy...

Just had dinner there last night. No sign of distress at all.

I think it would be just terrible if Tony Packo's closed. My last visit there was 5yrs ago. Mr. Wabbit had never been and he really enjoyed his Dog with a side of White or do they call it" Chicken Chili" We enjoyed it quite alot. He didn't know how many 'famous" people had been there until he was able to look around at the signed "bun's". I have had nothing but good experiences there and would hate to see such a landmark of Toledo go under. Klinger may have worn dresses to get a section 8.. But he sure knew his food!

Typical Small Business Story in America:
  1. Founder works like a dog to build a successful business.
  2. Turns business over to family.
  3. Family bleeds the business dry.
  4. Business dies a slow & painful death.

Wow a new meaning of the term "Family Feud" where's Richard Dawson when we need him.
 
I was there early this summer, I can only hope that things will continue it is a unique place.
