Dinner in Altoona
Have to make a last minute biz trip Altoona next Wednesday with my boss and two other suits. Help!
Jethro's is a great local spot. There is a new place in front of the Holiday Inn express called Raphael's that is a little more upscale-haven't been there yet.
Finelli's is a red sauce Italian place that is decent.

I haven't eaten at Raphael's yet, but The Altoona Hotel is really the only decent meal I have had in Altoona in years, it is a restaurant despite the name, not a place of lodging. Quite upscale, creative and tasty food for Blair County.
Finelli's is quite old fashioned and merely decent, but better than the chains that this area favors.
re: Dan D
never thought of altoona as having anything worthwhile to eat at but after looking at the menu of the altoona hotel i am drawn to that place. Is it that good?
Probably will stay in altoona when going to psu football since getting a hotel in state college is almost impossible on game weekends
Al's Tavern looks good. Any other ideas for breakfast and lunch? I will be there in 2 weeks for the PSU/Nebraska game. Arriving Friday and leaving Sunday.
