Pop's Diner is always the best food at the best price. The portions are huge, you get your money's worth! The food is always great. The atmosphere is of a 50's diner. They are open until 3am. They have a large selection of great sandwiches. I just can't describe how great the coca cola from their fountain tastes.

Every time I visit Carolina Beach I have to stop here for lunch or desert. I enjoy the grilled shrimp burger/sandwich and they are nice enough to make it the way I want which is a bit different than the menu listing. Good basic food like sandwiches and fries and nice deserts. Not the healthiest food in the world but... More

We were here several years ago and the only thing that has changed in how you order. Now they actually come to you table a take the order. We had 9 people in our party and everyone thought it was great. Very nice staff.

Looking for a place to walk off the beach, cool off, and get some great food. Pops offers a nice variety of burgers, hotdogs, subs and chicken/seafood baskets. Very American Graffiti vibe with excellent service. Highly recommend

This place was soooo awesome. Definately will be back. Service was excellent. Nostalgic was wonderful. Building could use a new floor but hey 20 years on beach front ? Totally can't wait to go back.

It's a basic burger place - not much outdoor seating and it's set up to take food to go. The burgers were tasty and the Hawaiian ices were delicious. Great food while at the beach.

Went here with family while on vacation. Food quality and service were average for the burgers and chicken dishes we ordered. Decor was dated and some of the signs on the wall weren't as family friendly as one might expect for a family diner. Prices were reasonable.

We rolled into Carolina Beach late and starving! Our options were looking bleak (Ie: McDonalds), but we decided to check out the strip just in case something was open! Boy were we happy to see Pops open! Great service! I asked for a cheeseburger with no bun (due to gluten allergy) and they filled my plate with all the toppings... More
