“serving altoona for over 75 years!”
Tom & Joe's has been serving Altoona, Pennsylvania for over 75 years and has become a local institution providing a fun and energetic diner atmosphere. Founded by Tom Batrus and brother Joe in December 1933 at the original location shown above. Joe sold out in the late 1940s and Tom continued to run the business under the name Tom & Joes. In 2002, the upper section was remodeled by updating the seating, counter, and flooring. Some of the original decor was still maintained throughout the remodel including the knotty pine walls, counter tops, and table tops. Tom and Joes is now in its third generation of management with Tom's grandson George Jr. now managing the daily operations. George Sr, the 2nd generation, passed away May 29th, 2008, but his memory lives on strong with the many pictures that highlight his service to the restaurant hanging up throughout the restaurant. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
Waitress was rude, not just to my party, but those around us.
Unjustifiably long wait for food. It's breakfast foods, not fine dining.
Nonexistent customer service.
Owner allows it to happen, is just as bad, and offers no apologies.
As for the food, there's nothing they could possible serve that would make dealing with all the horrible customer service and an owner who doesn't care about his customers worth going there again.
I can confirm that other negative reviews people have given this place are 100% accurate. The owner replied to a few here and on Facebook. Instead of offering an apologize, he makes excuses and shows zero remorse for the bad experience others have had here.
Thinking about getting breakfast at Tom & Joe's? Eat a bowl of cereal at home, wait a bit, and head to lunch somewhere else in town.
Marzoni's has great food and a phenomenal staff.
