Fodor's Expert Review Thumb's Up Diner

$ Sweet Auburn, the Old Fourth Ward, and East Atlanta Diner

You haven't really lived, or at least tested the limits of your heart's health, until you've tried the Heap: a sizzling skillet full of eggs, buttery veggies, and potatoes. Add a fluffy biscuit on the side, and this is one of the city's best breakfasts. Thumb's Up also has good lunch options, including tamari-flavored tofu served on a bed of raw spinach.
