Thumbs Up Diner Restaurant Review

: Offering breakfast throughout the day, Thumbs Up specializes in big fluffy omelets, huge pancakes filled with pecan pieces, apple wood-smoked bacon, flavorful grits and good coffee, even if you order the decaf. In season, you can even get authentic New England maple syrup. Turkey and chicken are smoked in-house. Juices are freshly squeezed; jams are house-made as well. You may have your biscuit multi-grain if so inclined, and have your omelet made with egg whites at no extra charge. Blue plate specials featuring such Southern classics as fried catfish, smoked chicken salad, chili and fried or grilled chicken breast plus salads, tacos and quesadillas also are available for lunch. Located in an old house, this location closes at 3 p.m. on weekends, an hour earlier than its siblings. Other locations.
