I would definitely go back to pop – This restaurant is definitely between a 3 and 4 star establishment for me. I think it all depends on your service because ours was great. In terms of food, we ordered the steak, pork chops, chicken and the burger. We both had an excellent time at Pop Dinner and I think that had a lot to do with the service that we were given. I would definitely go back to this establishment.
Good Restaurant – It's been awhile since I've been to Pop Diner but I remember loving every minute of being there. Everything was delicious and the service was great. The atomosphere was great and the staff was great too. I highly recommend it. I can't remember if I had fish or chicken there. Maybe both. Who knows.
generous drinks-first class seafood and steaks-delicious soy peanut salad dressing – well, as a regular customer i ve tried a little bit of everything and been more than satisfied! its overwhelming!!
born in the 70s the atmosphere here feels very familiar,warm to my senses and memories.
the drinks are generous at a great price like the traditional pina colada and daquiries... to accompany them i usually order the tapas-like (but more filling) "pop munchie sampler" to share with a friend or the mucho nachos and chicken quesadillas. mmmmm!!! if i have dinner and order the salmon or shrimp, i feel like i m at a fancy restaurant as far as quality is concerned, extra fresh, but the portions are more to my measures, BIG! don't forget the angus steaks. so juicyyyyy. I ve only been there for breakfast once and ordered the delicious banana pancakes and fresh coffee. I forgot to mention the salads and specifically the thai salad with the soy peanut dressing. My mouth is watering just thinking about it...
the staff has become very familiar too. I ve been there so often...very friendly.
it is a MUST try place!!!
One of THE best diners – Pop Diner is one of the best diners i have been too regarding food, service, decora and warmth. Their customer service is excellent in many ways such as being friendly with you and being prompt with food. All types of food and drinks are excellent and i would recommend it to everyone. Try it once and you wont go anywhere else.
they make request! – This is one of my fave places to eat at when i get out of work. The serivce is fast the waiters are nice. The managers are very nice and always ask us how their service was. They are always around. Not like other places where the manager is never seen. They also pay attention to wat we ask for. for example last week i asked why they didnt have cherry pies. with all the choices they have. they didnt have cherry pie!...i came in today and guess wat was fresh on the counter top..CHERRY PIE!!!! yup my request was made. i thought it was very nice of them. P.s. u should also try their breadpudding its soooo good. They only make it once in a while but when they do i know they sell out fast. so i highly recomend this place. im sure u will enjoy it.
nice place to relax – so i was out shopping wit my girl friend at the queens center mall and we were recomende to go eat at pop diner. well turns out the place looked like something out of the 70s which was cool...since i wasnt born at that time so didnt know how the 70s looked...the food was great. u know had the usalldiner food...but it also had some asian and latin foods. which surpries me. havent seen a diner wit those choices in food i happen to try the hakka noddels (however they spell it..lol) it was soooo good...way better than ordering chines food. and my girl went wit the penn ala vodka. Which she said was sooo much better than some italian places she been too. So if u want to try something new u should try this place out...p.s. the ac felt very good after walking with all those bags..lol
nice service – food is great!....classic diner food....and latin style food!....which its my fave..since im latin myself. The place its self is sooooo clean, never seen a diner so clean. all in all great place. u should give it a try.
best diner in nyc! – the service is excellent, the food is great! the staff is extra friendly and when they have time they actually have conversations and make you feel at home. its a great place to eat. =]
Great food, great people...funny drinks hehe – i have gone to pop diner many times...and im never disappointed. The service is great they always have a smile on there face, they take time to get to know you. Sometimes they guess what i would like to eat. (so cool) Even if its busy they make sure someone is taking care of u...and food comes out fast and right on point ... great place to come with friends have great food after a long night of party or to continue the party wit there funny named drinks like the DEAD MAN WALKING!
Don't Come here – This place was terrible:
a. the decor was very tacky, although it was suppose to mimic the 70s, so its forgivable
b. The service was terrible, the waiters often forget your orders or take forever to come
c. The people in the restaurant were drunk and rowdy (don't go into the bathroom on weekends)
d. The food was terrible, everything was bland. Although they had a lot of variety, ranging from American to Asian to Latino, it was all bland and terrible in their own unique way (Burger was flavorless while the hash was mushy and the soup was thin)
So all in all, unless your desperate or you're just terribly curious because of the blinding neon lights outside, don't come here.
