Future of Cpl. Klinger's beloved hot dogs in doubt

Posted:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A family feud is simmering over an Ohio restaurant whose hot dogs were made famous on the TV show "M-A-S-H."

The battle over Tony Packo's is playing out in court in Toledo.

The son and grandson of the restaurant's namesake have been trading accusations for nearly a year, and each is trying to buy the company.

The restaurant's lender foreclosed on its loans, and a judge put a third party in charge of the restaurant while he sorts out the mess.

The restaurant was made famous in the 1970s when hometown actor Jamie Farr portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier who longed for Packo's hot dogs.  The restaurant has been a tourist magnet ever since.
