Tony and his family are wonderful people and we feel so sad for them right now. We go to Tony's almost every week on a Friday night to relax after a hard week at work. We always looked forward to going there. I hope they will open another restaurant and make it bigger and better then the original.
Our prayers and thoughts are with them.

Sorry to hear about this family's business. Hopefully they will come back strong with the support of the community.

Now...if any of you would like to know what real pizza tastes like while Tony's is being rebuilt. Please contact me and we can arrange for some awesome Chicago Style Deep Dish!

Glad no one was hurt!

Not only is Tony's a local hot spot and the hub of town...it's a landmark to those of us that grew up in town. Thankfully no one was hurt in the fire, but some very fond memories were definately lost! May you rebuild bigger and better than ever!
