“Good quality food. Interior could use a facelift.”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

The food was quite good and tasty, was cooked properly, and everyone enjoyed their food. However, the interior looks a bit dirty; the floor had old dirty looking carpet, and the tables looked old and stained and the walls a bit drab. Lastly, this is an old school style diner, and I would expect the "atmosphere" to detail as such, but even the waitress wasn't very engaged or upbeat.

“Should have learned my lesson.”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

I tried Pops again this year and found it to be worse than last year. First of all our burgers were not nearly done. We told the waitress and she just shrugged her shoulders and walked away.Finally we got the attention of another girl and she took the burgers back. We were brought more burger that were pretty good. One person in our party ordered fries and never got them. We also ordered the deep fried pickles and never got them. The food would be really good if they would just have their waitresses be more courteous and polite. Another couple from our group went there and also had about the same experience..It took me going there two times but I have finally learned my lesson.It was no different than last year.

“food good, but SLOW. service less than average”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

had a 1 yr old with us, so speed is key for us. it took absolutely forever to get our food and the longer it took, the less frequently we were checked on. so we were thirsty and hungry by the time I stood in the aisle to force a waitress to see where our food was. of course, it was "next up." after another 5 minutes, we got our food, which was good, but not worth the wait. thankfully, we were offered half off our bill - so they tried to make amends.

“Recommended by our B&B, thanks Noah!”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Our B&B recommended 'Pop's', we and asked about a good hamburger and were not disappointed. It is small but good service and a really GREAT hamburger!

If you like the 50's fell and a good hamburger this is the place. it is in the middle of Carolina Beach, easy to wall to form most places.
