Fresh ingredients, good portions, friendly service. Coffee and water were always full. Scrambled eggs were fresh, not a carton. Hubby's chicken & waffles looked amazing. Fresh breaded chicken tenders... Will make sure to come back when I'm in town again.

With whole wheat biscuits, chicken sausage, fresh fruit, etc., this restaurant has quality food and decent service. Beats Waffle House and IHOP by far!

The food was very good and enough to share had an omelet made my way with the potato spuds. Had to share so much food. Had the Turkey Ruben it was very good and a different choice from the regular Ruben I normally have.

This is one of our favorite spots in Roswell - just right for a breakfast reward after an exercise session at the nearby recreation center. You can build your own omelet, and the French toast is excellent!

It's hard to beat Thumbs Up for diner type food. Went for Sunday breakfast and had two eggs, spuds, lox and bagel. All portions are large and very tasty. The spuds remind me of potatoes from East Coast diners something that you do not find in many Atlanta restaurants. While the restaurant is very crowded it is worth the wait.

My family and I come here a lot especially on Sunday morning. Service is fast and friendly. Food is amazing and prices are good. My favorite is the French toast.

I would definitely eat here again. If you prefer maple syrup you can get that for .99 extra. I had the french toast (was shocked at the thickness of it) and well done bacon. I always ask for it well done and it came out perfect the first time (I usually have to send it back to be put on... More
