Business trip next week will have me going to Roaring Springs, while staying in Altoona.
Any food suggestions?

    Thank You grapevine. Had dinner at Finelli's last evening, and definitely a "super" chowhound recommendation. Everything prepared for each individual from scratch, so service was not "rapid", but it was a wonderful meal. I will definitely return the next time I am in Altoona.

      You are very welcome. You should also try The Allegro sometime.

      definitely hit lena's. the sauce is homemade daily and the knocchi's are outta this world. when i go home to pa. i hit lena's. lena was my aunt's mother and she had twin boys--blaine and duane. 1 is deceased now but the other twin runs it. also texas hotdogs for lunch. best hotdog sauce ever.

        You could try Fanelli's or the Allegro if you are on an expense account, Lena's is a red sauce Italian place, and Zack's is the sports bar with burgers.
