What the community has to say about Thumbs Up Diner

Information about this business (2)

"Relax, it's just eggs" is the motto at this favorite local diner. At Thumbs Up Diner, you'll find made-to-order breakfast and lunch diner classics like omelets, pancakes, burgers and fries. A popular favorite is the unique creation, "The Heap": seasoned pan-fried potatoes topped with a mound of scrambled eggs, cheese and pretty much anything else you'd like to add. If you're more in the mood...

Formerly a long standing institution in Decatur, Thumbs Up Diner reopened and relocated in the Historic 4th Ward/Martin Luther King District. Now 5 years and 2 locations later, we continue to set the standard in breakfast and beyond.

Breakfast the way it used to be!!

Awesome place for breakfast and lunch; get there before the crowds; a must-try is catfish and grits (best cheese grits in town); lots of local color; lively and great service.

Thumbs Up Diner Restaurant Review

This is a buffed-up, bright and bustling version of Thumbs Up’s original breakfast joint. The 1920s building with its brick walls, big windows and red-leatherette bar stools is a bit more generously sized than the original location. Under the direction of Brian Cate, the menu focuses on the first-meal dishes, although one may order from a list of sides to compose a lunch, and there is a...

Thumbs Up Diner Restaurant Review

A spiffy industrial-style space in a gritty neighborhood draws crowds who gather, especially on weekends, for the good omelets, pancakes, whole-wheat biscuits, grits and burgers. We like the Yukon, a generously proportioned omelet with smoked salmon, spinach and feta cheese. The grits are the real McCoy: stone ground and properly seasoned; their corn flavor is right on the money. Bacon isn't...

I had been to the Thumbs Up Diner in East Point several times and decided to check this location out. They have the same level of service I have come to expect from the East Point location as well as the same great food. Their pancakes are out of this world and a must try for anyone who thinks they...
