Breakfast is always great at Tom & Joe's Restaurant. Old Fashioned Dinner with great service. Worth a stop if you are in the Altoona area.

Lived here for a long time and had heard about this greasy spoon. Have gone twice and is an average greasy spoon. Old and run down, food is average, waitresses are kind of rude, but long timers. I would not go out of my way to go again, but I would considered it if in the neighborhood and hungry

I went there on a Sunday, and it is only open until Noon on Sunday. It was busy, but we got seated w/party of 6 within 5 mins. They have a wide variety of options on their menu including you can remove items for less money and add items for more money. Very flexible and highly reasonable. I got the... More

My first trip to experience breakfast at Tom & Joe's did not disappoint. The food was excellent and prices are very reasonable. My only small complaint is the wait staff were not very friendly or attentive (empty beverage glass sat on our table for 15 mins). They are extremely busy, so I don't want to be too harsh in my...

Some friends recommended we go there for a great breakfast to get good old fashioned cooking. We were not disappointed. The place was in business since 1933 and hadn't adopted any modern day shortcuts for food preparation. The dishes were hearty, very tasty and done well. The patrons were all locals which made it more interesting. Well worth the visit.

My husband and I had breakfast at Tom & Joe's after reading about how great this restaurant is on Facebook. It did not disappoint! The place was packed yet the waitress handled it without a glitch! Food was excellent! Will definitely be back!

My husband and I go to Tom & Joe's for breakfast every Sunday morning. We love their ham & cheese omelet and home fries with onions - the best in the area.

My mother has lived in the Altoona area for about 50 years and had never been there. We went there with my son and his wife and we all loved what we got. My son loved the steak and eggs so much he picked up the tab. I need to go back there soon (with my son).
