There is no shortage of iconic food establishments in the state of Ohio. Old-school and family-owned, these beloved businesses remain popular community staples and they are often regarded as being the place to go if you're looking for unbeatable, delicious food.
Schmucker's Restaurant in Toledo is one of those places. A local institution that's been serving the community since 1948, this old-fashioned diner has garnered a reputation for good food and friendly service. It is one of the most celebrated Ohio restaurants and if you haven't yet tried their pies, you're seriously missing out.
With the holidays just around the corner, there is no better time to indulge in one of their delicious homemade pies. There are over twenty varieties to choose from and you always have the option to stop in and enjoy just a piece or take an entire pie home to share.
Choose between a fresh strawberry, vanilla peanut butter, mince, or the infamous Dutch apple–Grandma Nola's original recipe which can be served à la mode with a scoop of ice cream on top.
Schmucker's changes their pie menu frequently but you can always expect a few specialty pies to be available like the peppermint stick brownie or black bottom, a pie topped with whipped cream and fudge.
All pies are baked fresh that morning. In addition to these mouth-watering desserts, Schmucker's also serves up some of the best comfort food plates you'll find in the state–from massive burgers to delicious mashed potatoes.
Schmucker's Restaurant is open every day of the week besides Sundays from 6:30 am until 9 pm. To learn more about the restaurant and all their menu offerings, be sure to visit their official site here.
