We stopped here for lunch. First time at their new location. We were seated immediately. Their menu has plenty of choices. We were pleased with our meals. We plan to come back.

If not for table salt and ketchup, my omelet and homefries would not have had any flavor whatsoever. If it wasn't for the decent service, the grade would be lower.

Been here a few times because it's so popular and I can't wrap my head around why it is... I've gotten different items every time I've gone and it's never that good! Service is ok food is just ok also. Their new building is nice but food quality hasn't changed.

We enjoyed this family restaurant where you can get entrees like the open faced turkey dinner. I had a fish dish that was fresh and delicious. Everyone at our table was satisfied with both the food and the service.

Chicken and dumplings are excellent. Hash brown casserole is an all time favorite. Wait time can be long but worth the wait as you can browse the country store. Breakfast is by far the best I ever had.

Pops is a family diner, its not fancy but its ideal if you have a picky eater or kids. The food is on the bland side, probably intentionally. The new location is much better and service is efficient. Its on the inexpensive side and gets a lot of repeat visitors.

Love this place for breakfast. They provide consistently good food and service. I've tried several items on their menu (all breakfast) and they have all been very good. Portion sizes are large, great value for the price. The crab cakes Benedict is my favorite. It's delicious! Even when it's crowded, I rarely wait more than 5-8 minutes for my food.
