Good quality breakfast. They are always packed and it's often a wait on the weekends. Oh yea.and they only accept cash. They have nice lil off menu specials.. that I always try. I go often and I will continue..

Went with a friend for brunch. There's a wait, so it might be worth calling ahead. We ordered the Ultimate Seaside Breakfast, and man was it. The catfish was fried and seasoned perfectly, the grits were fire, and even though I'm not a fan of cream cheese, the scramble was amazing. 5/5 will go back anytime.

Excellent Experience!
The food and service were absolutely amazing! I ordered the spud bowl and it was delicious. The food was piping hot when it came out, and everything was cooked fresh. Not only this, but the staff was very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was also very welcoming. Thumbs Up has become the new breakfast go to for my family and I whe ... read more

Hands down, one of the best breakfasts I have ever had! I had the chicken strips with Belgian waffle and eggs. My husband got the catfish and waffle. Everything tasted wonderful! The restaurant was very busy, but the service was excellent! I would absolutely recommend this restaurant, but make sure you bring your appetite!

Thumbs Up Diner is a down home, neighborhood diner serving up classic fare with southern flair. The service is warm and friendly. The Skillet Heap with chopped veggie sausage was delicious and filling. Added bonus, they have sourdough toast. They are cash only, so bring bills or you can use the ATM they have in the back. This was ... read more

Best catfish I've had in a long while. Our waiter Rashad was really nice, food came out really fast and hot. The only draw back Is the cash only house rule which is a big inconvenience if you want to order more food to go but I understand the reason behind it after out waiter Rashad explained. There's an 1Hr wait so make reservation ... read more

My good friend and I went here during our recent stay in Atlanta.

Excellent experience with joining the waitlist on Yelp. We were told when to check in and when we got to the restaurant, we were seated right away.

Great place to have brunch very reasonable prices for big portions of food. The only thing I don't like much is the parking and that they only take cash. But other than than that I would recommend this place. I love the shrimp and grits meal and the omelet I had was so good.

Just Off The Train!
First time visiting Thumbs Up after an all night train ride from Philly! Thumbs Up was recommended by fellow travelers, and it was a total hit! Had the fried pork chops with a side of sausage gravy. We will be back soon! Excellent wait staff, who took care of our two tables! I give them a Thumbs Up!

You can't lose with Thumbs Up Diner. I frequent the location in Edgewood. It's a locals favorite eatery with a full breakfast menu. Another one of my favorite brunch spots. The staff makes you feel at home and food will ensure your return. The food pricing is the best I've seen in this area. It is a "cash only" Diner but they have an ... read more
