For some reason Jethro's continues to be a fairly popular area restaurant. Based on that fact I have given this place numerous opportunities, but my experiences there have been very consistently poor.
First, the service is almost always slow, slow...did I mention SLOW? Even when the place is empty, the food seems to take forever.
Second, the quality of the food is average at best. The menu choices are uninspired and few. They claim to be the "place for ribs" but they don't even come close to the quality of Clem's ribs (an authentic roadside bbq on 220 between Altoona & State College). Their chicken salad is ok but way overpriced.
Third, the prices are about 10-20% higher than they should be for the caliber of food that they offer.
All things considered, there are MUCH better choices in Altoona. Want a great chicken salad or sandwich...go to Al's. Want good Italian...go to Lena's. Want good ribs...drive up 220 and get take out from Clem's.
Just don't bother going to Jethro's!
