Great food and service. We started with hotdogs "all the way" with fries and onion rings. Amazing!!!! We also tried cheese burgers, they were huge! Still my favorite was the hotdogs. Key lime pie and cheesecake were good too.

Great place for sandwiches and platters. We eat here often and my daughter says the cheesesteaks are the best in town. My favorite is the grilled chicken platter. The sweet potatoe fries are like dessert they are so good. Fresh made items, not prepackaged.

They say that they have the best burgers on the beach and they are not lying. One of the best burgers I have ever tasted.

Pops has a great menu selection and everything I have tried has been freshly made and very good. Service is great and it has an old 50's diner atmosphere

Great little diner with delicious food! It can be a bit pricey for a family if you order appetizers, but they are hard to resist!

My wife and I, she had fries with her sandwich but I did not. Good thing because I ate half of hers anyway. The sandwich's were huge. More food than we needed.
