We spent three nights at Carolina Beach and ate here two times. Does that tell you anything about how much we love Pop's? My favorite is the cheesesteak sandwich.

I went here with just the kids. We were able to get simple sandwiches - all we were in the mood for after such a hot day. Service was fastr and friendly and the food was very good. We plan to return to get what sounded like amazing desserts!

Pop's is open late night which is great for service industry employees, or if you are out at the local bars and need late night food. They have a very good menu, lot's of choices.
