One of the best parts of being on a road trip is finding good eats, and finding them off the beaten path without a GPS is even more fun and challenging. Not really, but we enjoyed some good food at these three places in Toledo last week.
1. Schmucker's. Not much to look at, but this 63-year-old diner served up heaping helpings of homemade goodness including one of our favorite desserts P I E!
The kids under the Schmucker's road sign. A enjoys chicken and biscuits. Coconut cream pie! T's Wimpy burger platter.
2. The original Tony Packo's. This place came highly recommended by Brian, who appears to be a connoisseur of fine hot dogs everywhere. Although I skipped the chili and the special hot dog sauce, the hot dog had a snappy, tasty bite.
And where else can you get a hot dog with a side of mashed potatoes or a chili dog with a side of chili? Extra touch: celebrity-signed hot dogs buns displayed all over the walls. T even got a souvenir beer glass, and Miss O licked her mac and cheese bowl clean. Now that's good eats!
3. Deet's BBQ - located south of Toledo in Maumee. We stopped at this restaurant on our way out of town. Yummy, tender pulled pork sandwiches with sweet BBQ sauce and creamy coleslaw. We loved the sauce so much we bought a pint to take home, and had it on some baby back ribs the other night. Messy, yummy goodness!
Homemade goodness, highly-recommended hot dogs, and sweet, delicious BBQ - three good road trip eats!
