Good was very good and at a reasonable price with good size portions . The brisket with the sweet bbq sauce will have your mouth watering for more.

Went to Pop's this past weekend, all in all it was ok. Smoked wings were very good, while the service was slow. Location is key being it is close to the lake. Bottom line, food is good, leave yourself time

My husband and I stopped on a Sunday afternoon after swimming at Cave Run, it was very busy but we didn't have to wait for a table. Our waitress, Rita, was probably the best waitress I've had anywhere in a while. The sweet tea was just like I made at home. The pulled pork ranch fries are a must. Although... More

We've been coming up to visit family every Memorial and Labor Day for the last three years. It's a 500 mile ride from South Carolina and this is always one of our stop and eat destinations while taking a trip around the lake. The food is good enough for the price and the folks inside have always been friendly and... More

Great food! Good customer service. Will come back! Ribs were the best. Lots of meat and very tender. Had the pulled pork as well and it was also good.

My husband and I stopped in for the first time today and this will be a place we will return to again. It is small but mighty in all areas of service and food. Prices are reasonable and the smoked meats are great! If you are in the area this is a must try you won't regret it!

They have the best pork meals I have ever eaten. Prices are resonable but the best is the taste of the food. Service is good too.

Pops BBq is THE place to go just before you get to cave run lake. Stop and grab some lunch before heading out on the boat or visit during dinner hours. The place tends to get a little busy after a long day of boating but it is worth the wait. The Bbq is fanastic and the service is excellent.

My wife and I stopped in and ordered carryout to take back to Twin Knobs. We both had pick 3's since we wanted a variety of food, this was somewhat disappointing since they were out of ribs and turkey. We were stuck with pulled pork, brisket, and the chicken tenders. The pulled pork and chicken tenders were top notch! The... More
