I was visiting the Carolinas and I wanted to have some real Carolina BBQ. I definitely found it at pops diner. Although the only BBQ I saw on the on the menu, was the BBQ pork sandwich and the basket. They hit the nail on the head with the flavor and the price. I mean it was awesome !! Very... More

Just came back from Pop's Diner and we loved it. The service was great and our server was very friendly. We love the fact that the name of the place has always been Pop's Diner. Try the grilled cheese, it's to die for. My husband got the one patty burger and he loved it. We will be back.

Stopped here with some friends for lunch and we were all transported back to the restaurants of the 1950's and '60's. Great decor with lots of memorabilia to look at. Period music was playing which we all enjoyed. The service and food was quite good and plenty of it for a reasonable price. We will definitely stop here again when... More

Déjà vu! A classic diner from the 50’s with inlaid linoleum flooring and formica topped booths. All that is missing is a large Wurlitzer juke box in the corner with accompanying wall boxes in each booth. Music playing was Fats Domino, Bill Haley, Bo Diddley, et.al. Oh yes, by the way, they do serve food and excellent food at that.... More

We arrived for 1st trip to Carolina Beach and "ASSUMED" would be no issue to find a good restaurant even though it was about 10pm. Found out the "food street" rolls up before 10pm. We stuck our head in the door and asked if open and the very nice young lady who was cleaning up said "sure, if you dont... More

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
