Food was delicious!!! There was a 30 minute wait. Please bring cash because this is a cardless restaurant. There is an Atm on site you can use. Parking is on the street.

This place is a must - go in atlanta! As a New Yorker, this Diner experience opened me up & blew me right out the waters. This is a very welcoming Diner, come in with an open heart. I had a heaping skillet full of well cooked veggies and cheese topped with two sunnyside eggs, yummm. The freshest biscuit on the side, the damn freshest ... read more

Don't be fooled because this isn't just any Diner. You will be hooked my friend. Their smoked chicken wings.... GAME CHANGER! You can eat the waffle without condiments, it's that good. The portions are worth every penny. We weren't certain who our actual server was. It was brunch time on a Saturday so everyone was extremely busy. Non ... read more

I love Thumbs Up Diner. I come to Atlanta pretty often and this has definitely been my go to place on my last couple trips. Their fried catfish is divine. I highly recommend it.

The best breakfast I've ever had. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the texture of my grits were outstanding. The service is unmatched and the pricing couldn't be better. They sanitize tables and seats constantly, giving me a sense that they are actively trying to prevent the spread of Covid-19. This is a business that clearly care ... read more

The food was pretty good. I only gave 4 stars because number 1 it's a cash only spot and I do not carry cash... inconvenience for me.

The wait is long but if you select the diner on Edgewood, you can do a seating reservation online. I would greatly suggest doing so. The food was amazing. Good portions, average time for preparation, but be advised - they're CASH ONLY!

I ordered ahead to-go, the shrimp and grits were good as usual and the food was ready when I got there.  Everyone including staff wears a mask and Just FYI they only take cash so be prepared for that or you can use the expensive ATM inside.

The only bad thing I have to say about this place, which can be fixed quite easily, is the fact that they are cash only. They do have an ATM in the back, but when I'm charged an atm fee I always get a bit annoyed.

The place is a very popular breakfast spot on Edgewood, and the food is a) great, b) made quickly, and c) priced r

I took my parents here over Thanksgiving.  My mom got the catfish and I have been thinking of nothing else since.  I have been here before and its always good but it really has me hooked.
