Great food and very close to Cave Run lake

The food is great, great service , could use more parking , on the weekends it's very busy with all the lake traffic.

After a fun and hot family and friends day to Cave Run Lake, we were all starving!!! We decided to stop at this tiny place called Pop's BBQ for dinner, it was always packed, so we planned to stop in a little early and check it out! So glad we did! Pop's BBQ has sitting inside and outside, we sat... More

In a tiny little dining room with 8 tables there is only one other table with customers and little old me. So far I have watched 3 different employees come in, clean off tables and wait on the other table. Don't know what kind of weird "I'm not I hungry, I'm just sitting here" vibe I could be giving off,... More

Ate at Pops on the way home from CaveRun Lake. What a awesome little place to eat. And I should know good places because I have and will ride my bike 300 miles oneway just to eat. I will be back to Pops for more great food!!!

Visited while camping at twin knobs campground and absolutely loved the food. Caught them on a day with an all you can eat rib special. True smoked ribs and excellent sauce. You will not go wrong with their ribs. Enjoy!

Great food prepared by a guy who cares about quality. Best barbecue in the region. Give them a shot if you are in the area!

Beef brisket is to die for!!!!!!! The service is excellent and the decour is fun. All the food is cooked fresh daily so you may not want to get there at the end of the day, because they might be sold out of your dream BBQ! Don't fret over it too much because EVERY THING is dreamy!

First, you need to order ahead. This place is always packed and it took almost a half hour to get my take out order without calling ahead. That being said, the food is wonderful. We had the pulled pork dinners Bd they we're delicious ! Melt in your mouth and a plus for having fried green tomatoes !!

Stopped by Pop's Barbecue on the way home from Cave Run Lake today. I remember the last time I ate there thinking, "boy, those are some outrageous prices for that little amount of food." Well...I fell for it again because I was hungry and no other restaurants around. True to form, the food was OK but the price was astronomical... More

There isn't much of a selection in the area surrounding the beautiful hills and hollers of Morgan County. So - Sunday evening after spending the days wandering through the hills we headed over to the only place to go - Pop's. Just too tired to go any further. I ordered the ribs, salad, and baked potato. The prices were just... More
