I have tried the spring roll that being mentioned from previous review, they are delicious, also the dumplings were very good. We had chicken fingers and two big glass beer. For only 36 dollars, that is really decent price. Going back again for sure!

However we had a great time here and actually enjoyed the food. We said oh well we can shoot some pool, have... More

Despite Jon E's review, the neighbourhood surrounding Pops & Rubys is perfectly safe (I've lived here for 7 years and there are no houses between the hotel and Pops). The food is great, a surprise is the AMAZING asian cuisine. It's a dive bar, don't expect champagne and caviar, but if you want a cold beer and a good meal... More

So, I was staying at the hotel around the corner. Literally a two minute walk, and I was still worried something nefarious was going to happen to me on the way over. Lots of 'walkers' and stoop-sitters. Made it safely and got a pound of wings. Regular deep fat fried frozen wings with some hot sauce squirted on top. Six... More

We are in town on business for 3 weeks and wish we would have found this place sooner. We have tried several dishes and all were good. Very friendly place, I felt right at home from the first visit.
