Another great turn around in Roswell.

Our first time at the thumbs up was not good. The food was salty and average but a year later we decided to go try again and have been back a few times a month since. Service is always friendly and attentive. My son loves the Mickey cake which is just a tasty hot cake shaped like The famous... read more

It's small, and they don't take reservations, but the food is always delicious. The staff is friendly, and they make an effort to get to know their regulars. It's fun to walk into a place and have someone bring my preferred beverage before I even look at the menu. Not that I actually look at the menu very often. The... More

I had the lemon chicken soup and the chopped salad. I was impressed with both items as having a lot of meat. Many salads and soups skimp on meat. Both were yummy and flavorful. This place has a great outside seating area.

Gosh, a true dream, a fast moving, great breakfast (and lunch) food after most other places won't serve breakfast. What I noticed the most was the extra sized coffee and the cheerful prompt delivery of that coffee and the breakfast. The place is set up for those who are hungry but don't have a lot of time. Menu's are on... More

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Today my daughter treated me to breakfast here. Great menu. Lots of stuff made in house. Pleasant waitress. Quick service, but then it went downhill from there. Loud rock n roll overhead music. Waitresses having a good ole time behind the wall. Loud, loud laughing. Food came out promptly but very few...

My husband surprised me one weekend recently by taking me here for a weekend breakfast treat. Although there was a bit of a wait, it was worth it. Delicious finch toast made with fresh ciabatta bread. Be sure to to add a side of fresh strawberries, it goes well with the powdered sugar and syrup. My husband ordered an omelet... More

Do yourself a favor and get there early. So many breakfast options, so little room in my tummy! I particularly enjoy their pancakes. But they also make their own jams so I'm always tempted to get toast or a biscuit, as well. The servers all seem happy to work there and are efficient, friendly and do not rush you even... More

Ok, we have been going to this Thumbs Up ever since it opened. We finally realized we need to get there really early to really enjoy ourselves. The build-up of folks at the front door is most annoying, otherwise. The food is always delicious and well presented. The biscuits are a bit heavy, but really ,how many places still make... More
