I have family in Altoona (actually in Hollidaysburg) and spent several weekends each year there in the late 60s and I remember the Altoona Hotel and Altoona Pizza. though vaguely. My wife and I had lunch at 29th Street Pizza not long ago. They have an interesting variety of food. Be aware they are not open on weekends.
