House next to ‘M-A-S-H’ Ohio hot dog eatery auctioned

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A house next to the original Tony Packo’s Cafe made famous on the TV series “M-A-S-H” has been sold through a bankruptcy auction to the company that now owns the restaurant chain.

The Blade in Toledo ( ) reports the home was owned by Robin Horvath. The former Packo’s executive and grandson of the chain’s founder is in the midst of a forced Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

The home brought $35,000 at auction last month from winning bidder Tony Packo’s Toledo LLC owned by Bennett Management Corp. The corporation bought the chain in 2011 in a sale to resolve the chain’s financial problems.

Tony Packo’s became a household name in the 1970s when actor Jamie Farr portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for Packo’s hot dogs.
