“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The food was delicious! I had the pork and it melted in my mouth, best I have had in a very long time. We are new to the area and will add Pop's to our list of favorites!

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We love Pop's for takeout. The pizzas have a nice thin crust and fresh, delicious toppings. The homemade meatballs are great.

“Hip Industrial Italian in Durham”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Ten of us had a very nice business dinner at Pop’s. The Atmosphere is sort of hip industrial; service was friendly and professional; wine list is reasonably priced with nice selections, and everyone enjoyed their meals. We shared the Italian meat platter, others had the calamari, and my entre was the salt egg and prosciutto flat bread which was very good. There are many good restaurants in the downtown Durham area these days and I would recommend that you add this to your list to try.

“Great choice for dinner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time at Pops but it certainly won't be our last! The food was delicious & the atmosphere was great. We had the "Chicken under a brick", pizza & squash/zucchini lasagna. All of the menu items were excellent. Highly recommend!

Calling ahead for reservations is suggested.

“Just what we wanted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Dinner after a long day of driving, with a recommendation from our Airbnb hosts. Pop's served up a couple of pints of a tasty dark local ale called Sweet Josie's, followed by a big bowl of succulent PEI mussels swimming in a tangy tomato and red chile sauce. There was bread to sop up the extra sauce, and a tall table for two with a view out big picture windows and into the busy kitchen. Quick and efficient service, with good advice from our congenial waiter Wesley. The bowl of mussels was plenty for two people with moderate appetites, and allowed room to share a warm chocolate pudding cake for dessert.
Just wish we had enough time in town for another visit!
