The food here is all homemade and is all fantastic. I ordered a black bean veggie burger and it had great flavor on the potato bun!

Everything was incredible yummy good here. So good that we went back another night. If you have to try one place in Carolina Beach it needs to be Pop's Diner you won't be sorry.

Saw Pop's on drive-by and had to visit. Food is great with floor to ceiling 50's nostalgia! Very family friendly and just in front of the Boardwalk rides.

The burgers were a family favorite. Tasted great....just a little on the greasy side. But the onion rings were wonderful. Not one complaint from my family!

Good food and service... I would recommend the Shrimp Po Boy and Elisha's sundae delight was Awesome! 😃 The servers worked as a team to care for the guest and the price was reasonable.

Great service. I had the single burger and it was plenty. DH had the phillie cheese and said that was good as well. We got a mixed basket of homemade tater tots and onion rings. Yum.

We got takeout from Pop's one rainy afternoon at the beach. Just a basic order of hamburgers, tater tots and hot dogs. The burgers were fantastic! Very big and filling. I am not sure exactly what all is in the tater tots, but they seem to be hashbrowns scooped into a hushpuppy-like shape, then deep fried. They were delicious! Would... More

My kids and I have shared many late night desserts at Pop's Diner. It has a funky diner atmosphere and is a great place to stop off after a long day at the beach. The regular food is tasty and typical diner fare but with generous portions. The staff is courteous even during the slow seasons and they always make... More
