Stopped in for breakfast after looking up ideas on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. I had a skillet with potatoes, eggs and vegetables and a biscuit. Potatoes were super crispy and the vegetables were onions, pepper, broccoli, zucchini and squash. Everything tasted fresh. The biscuit is multi-grain, so more dense than I'm used to. Honestly, the only thing I didn't... More

I've been to Thumbs up a number of times. This is a great breakfast/lunch place near downtown Roswell/Canton St. On weekends there is always a crowd. They have the usual pancake/omelette/ French toast offerings, but with a few spins (fruit flavored, pumpkin spice in fall, etc. Large servings. Their breakfast potato order is HUGE, and so delicious. Today was not... More

I love Thumbs Up Diner, and while this one doesn't seem to be quite as tasty as the original one, it's still absolutely delicious! The menu is full of excellent choices!

First time here and was surprised at how good the food was. I had the French toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon. It also comes with cheese grits which I passed along to my wife. I hate grits, she loves them though she said they needed to be cooked longer. The bacon was crisp and tasty while the eggs were made... More

Visited on a Sunday morning before hitting the road to head back home. It was very crowded when we walked in the door. We gave a woman our name and she said the wait would be 35 minutes but we only waited about 20-25 minutes for a party of 5. Once we were seated the service was fast and friendly,... More
