An old fashioned diner with the best cheesesteak & fries done to perfection I ever had. Certainly will place this restaurant in my top 20 of great meals. Can't wait to try breakfast! ,
I used Goggle to find a restaurant that was close to another attraction my family and I were at. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. The portions were great and the food was very good. Was disappointed that there was no dessert left for us. Will pre-order it the next time we are in Altoona.
We enjoy stopping and experiencing local restaurants when traveling. This place was busy at breakfast time and we could see why. The food is very different from what you'd get at a chain restaurant. It was home cooked and satisfying. The Breakfast Mess was very good.

Yes, at times they may get a little short and the cook is yelling across the room when the orders are ready but that's part of the... More

The food was good, but the service was very slow. Most likely because they had one person covering one huge room. She seemed very rushed and wasn't the most friendly person. Actually she was kind of abrasive. Like a previous reviewer stated, we made the comment that we felt like we were in a 70's sitcom. The food portions are... More
