I have always enjoyed Pop's. Everything tastes wonderful. It can be a bit on the greasy side but other than that, the food is great! Nothing for people who are watching their diet, I will add. Also a friend of mine used them to cater her wedding. The food for that was great as well and very cost effective :)

We had them cater an event for us and the food was excellent. Our group was over 50 people. Everyone found something to eat in our catered service, it was mostly pork barbecue which I would highly recommend. Great food for a reasonable price. You should try them for your next event.

We have drove past here many times. We decided to give it a try. We didn't have to wait to be seated. Our waitress was a little slow getting to us but it wasn't really an issue. We both ordered the brisket and pulled pork platters. I ordered the cole slaw and cheesy taters. I did not like the taters... More

Pop's is a good restaurant, owned by good people, and they have quality and committed staff. With that said, sometimes the food is hit or miss. My agency recently placed a large take out order and multiple people were disappointed with their food. Two of the brisket platters had an excessive amount of fat. My pulled pork sandwich was good...

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.

Everything I've had there is terrific but the sliced brisket and the baked beans are just over the top delicious!!

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.
