Great place to eat great food. Thumbs up is a great diner the atmospher and servicxe is great can.t wait to go back my girlfriend went once and she enjoyed it as well so we have made Thumbs up one of our spots to eat.
Love the Breakfast!!!. The best breakfast spot thus far. I don't even like breakfast that much, but I enjoy eating at thumbs up diner it is a urban spot with a very relaxing atmosphere.
2 hour wait for eggs??. The food here is awesome. The service is good if they know you. BUT, it is not worth the wait. My husband and I have not been able to eat here in over a year because of the crowd, and we live within walking distance. Go ahead and try getting there at 9am or even 8 am, the people will already be pouring out the door waiting. Another downer....if you decide to tough out the 2 hour wait, you will always have to deal with at least one homeless person harassing you.
Great Breakfast Spot. This establishment offers the best breakfast in town. I would recommend this Diner to everyone. They are the only place that offers spuds (home fries) that taste like the real thing. This is definitely not a Waffle House or IHOP or Cracker Barrel.
Best Brunch in the city!!......if you are a patient person.. My husband and I love the food in "Thumbs Up". The portions were very generous and the prices very accessible. The problem is that we show up around 10 am and waited until 11:30. Honestly, if you go to the Flying Biscuit (were the food is also great) you know you are going to wait but this took too long. The only reason why we did not leave is thinking how late it was and that it was going to be starting a line someplace else. In the end it was a great meal but next time I'll go at 9 am.
The french toast should be called CHA-BIGGER NOT CHABBALLAH!!!. Usually i'ma waffle house, ihop type girl, but i've practically eaten everything on both menus.(AM I GREEDY?) I told my boyfriend about this restaurant after seeing it on citysearch. First off, please make sure u look halfway decent, because this definitely has a suave, hipster,new age feel to it. I wish i would've known because i went in looking halfway crazy. I didn't care though. It's kinda small, maybe you wanna get there as early as possible or maybe as late as possible. We ended up getting a small little table next to the bathroom. The menu is INSANE!!! I swear they have every vegetable you want. My boyfriend ordered "The Heap." Basically its alot of eggs with potatoes and cheese, a meat and vegetable scrambled all together. Its HUGE! When i first walked in this couple across the way had a huge slice of bread on there plate. I didn't know whether or not it was the french toast. So i ordered one slice just to be safe and an omelet with cheese, potatoes and onions. One word FABULOUS!!! THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. I SWEAR MY FRENCH TOAST WAS AT LEAST 7 INCHES LONG. THEY SERVE IT WITH A CUTE LITTLE BOTTLE OF MAPLE SYRUP. THE EGGS WERE AWESOME. THE SERVICE WAS GREAT, THE FOOD WAS GREAT. THE AMBIANCE WAS GREAT. THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS HOT!!! I'LL DEFINITELY BE GOING BACK FOR 2ND'S, 3RD'S AND MORE. ONE THING BRING CASH!!!
Great breakfast food. The food here was great. While it may not be located in the best area, I still found the industrial nature of that area charming. There were cool shops along the street. This area has character that you jut can't get many other places. But to the food and service... I arrived on a Saturday morning around 10 a.m., and when my party arrived, we were seated after only waiting about 15 minutes. When we left at 11:30, the line was outside the door. Definitely get there early. If you arrive at 11:30 or later, expect to wait for longer than 15 minute. After we were seated, I was in the mood for some fish. So I ordered the fried catfish which was absolutely delicious. It was well seasoned, hot, and crunchy. I also got one of their biscuits and eggs, which was great. Much better than the biscuits you get at the Flying Biscuit. It was a lot of food and not very expensive. I believe my meal cost around $8. I will make it back soon, but I am unfortunately addicted to the crab and shrimp fritatta at another restaurant. I am confused by the parking situation. There may just be street parking...there's a lot in the back, on the side but it's not paved and hard to navigate.
GREAT !!! Customer Service... GREAT BREAKFAST... Best french toast. But its always a long wait. I would recommend this to anyone who's looking for breakfast and trust me the wait is worth it!
True and Southern. I have been hitting the top 10 list for a while. I keep coming back to Thumbs Up. Had a friend in from out of town and introduced him to Waffles and chicken. We even went a step further and had it Alton Brown style, with hot sauce and syrup. It was amazing. The wife had the usual 'best French Toast in town.' She was not disappointed. Again, megga Thumbs Up!!!!!!!
Pretty good food, long wait, nice eyecandy.. The wait will be long on weekend mornings. Count on it. But it impresses out of town guests after a night of partying, and you see many people in the same state as you, many of whom are interesting to watch. The food is solidly good, with some exceptional standouts (I love their omelets). It's expensive-for-breakfast, but we usually only go when we have the aforementioned guests with us.
