“Great place”
Review of Pop's Diner Co

Pop's Diner Co
Ranked #96 of 1,452 Restaurants in Virginia Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $7 - $11
Cuisines: American
Description: Two brothers had an idea. Open a restaurant and give people the home cooking they want with the service they deserve. That’s all we had to go on. Our business plan so to speak. Not corporate. Not rigid. Just a place where a family can enjoy themselves and leave with a smile. This awesome and super complexTM business plan led to the opening of our Lynnhaven Parkway Pop’s Diner Co. location in 2005. With the great support of the community and our customers we opened our second location on Greenbrier Parkway in 2009. It all started when our father, Pops as we call him, would cook breakfast for us every Sunday morning without exception. To our horror, we found out that some of our friends and acquaintances weren’t as lucky! They didn’t get to enjoy grilled sausages, fresh cut homefries, and buttered biscuits every Sunday. They would go to a corporate breakfast and eat cold eggs, soggy pancakes, and get service with an attitude. So being the humanitarians and general all around good guys that we are, we decided to form our above mentioned awesome and super complexTM business plan. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. Our diner is a place of no pretensions, where locals hang out, chat with others, watch the staff have fun and have a great meal - the best breakfast in Virginia Beach. It's the perfect place to bring out-of-town visitors. They'll get a real home cooking experience—great omelets, grilled sandwiches, homemade specials, in a clean and family friendly atmosphere. The best diner in Hampton Roads. So come join us for a meal and see why our community voted us the “Best of the Beach”.

printed a restaurant.com certificate to use here while on vacation. Great service, even while restaurant was very busy. Relaxing atmosphere. Portions were huge...best waffle I've ever had.

My family ate here on August 24th 2012(Friday). We were absolutely thrilled with the food, service, and price. The portions were huge(I have 2 teens that were satisfied) and the sandwiches(burgers and Patty Melt) came with a mountain of fries. The food was so hot I couldn't hold my burger for a few minutes. If you want good solid comfort food come here! I also used my restaurant.com certificate and saved money too! What a great find! Afetr a day at the beach EAT HERE!

We had great service this past Sun morning. Food came very quickly, which is great having two children. My husband had the corn beef hash skillet, which he enjoyed. I had the French toast with strawberries. The strawberries weren't the best but were edible. Kids eat free too!
