Great service and food came out quick. Ordered pancakes, hash browns, bacon and eggs. Hash browns and eggs were good, but pancakes were cornmeal based and tough and bacon was super thin and over cooked. It was a mediocre experience hence my 3 star rating.

First visit, but it won't be our last. Very clean with a pleasant staff. Food was served hot and well presented. Portions were more than enough. Everything we ordered was cooked well and very tasty. All ingredients seemed very fresh, with the exception of the...salad ordered with the meal. All lettuce with one cucumber slice and two small pieces of tomato. Lettuce was not very fresh.More

I was amused when I asked the waitress if the gravy was homemade and she said yes ma’am and so were the biscuits. When they arrived the gravy was paste from the mix and the biscuits were Dowie either from a mix or whatever. On...the other hand the portions are huge and the staff is very friendly. I’ll try her dinner sometime and see if theyMake their vegetables from scratch ha haMore

In a hurry and hungry - and you want a delicious meal - check out this family business restaurant. They have lots of them around the area. Friendly, fast and affordable, they provide breakfast, lunch and dinner M-S for you/your family. Yum!

You can't beat their breakfast special. Where can you get good home cooking made to order for under $8? You can't go wrong with 2 eggs, meat, potatoes or gits, toast, and coffee!!

Visiting retired friends took me out one morning to their favorite breakfast restaurant, and I see why, if you like waffles/pancakes you will enjoy this place and be full when walking out to the car. If you have never been there, treat yourselves and try...it, I'm quite sure you will be happy and smiling as you are leaving. One other thing you will be happy with is the service and the server.More

Based on the packed parking lot and great reviews my family and I thought we'd have a good home cooked meal with friendly service. However, we were very wrong. After being greeted by a coughing and snorting ill looking waitress we reluctantly placed our orders....We got our soup which was ok then waited and watched as 3 other tables who came in 10 minutes after us got their food. Finally our waitress came over and told us the cook lost our ticket. We should have left then but she apologized so we figured we would just wait. The food came and it was less than appetizing in many ways. I got the turkey and stuffing with mashed potatoes and my husband got the open face beef sandwich. The beef was dry and chewy. The mashed potatoes must have been sitting out for a while because they were tacky and had hard chewy spots on the outside. The turkey oddly didn't taste like turkey neither did the turkey gravy. The turkey was a thick lunch meat consistency. The stuffing was possibly the worst I've ever had. It was mushy, wet and tasted like old sausage from being seared on the flat top. Honestly, it looked like cat throwup. To top it off the coffee was cold. This place failed in every aspect that makes a good diner. The manager adjusted our bill but regardless we won't be back.More

You can always get a good wholesome meal at Popi's. I had the cabbage rolls that was served with 2 sides. The prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious

We hosted my daughters birthday party in the banquet room. The room was clean and spacious and set up perfectly. The servers were excellent with our large group. The food came out quickly and accurately. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the great service! Thank...You Popi's! We hope to do it again sometime!More
