Pops is styled like a 1950s era diner. It's very clean and the staff is friendly. Their hours are limited so it's a bit hit or miss for me. As a result I usually just eat breakfast there. Nothing spectacular about it, but the food is tasty and always cooked exactly as I request. If I have a complaint it's... More

I waited an hour for a hamburger. Hamburger was good, service was not. The waitress took our order and never came back to explain what was taking so long. I got up and asked her why it was taking an hour for my food, also that I was going to be late getting back to my job. She never gave... More

Incredible onion rings, great hamburgers made perfectly to order. Breakfast offered all day. They close at 2 so don't delay.

The specialty burgers at this "throw-back-to-the-60s-dinner" are very good, and our server was nice, but she got so much of our order wrong (how do you mess up on a hamburger and fries?) and it took over 30 minutes from placing our order until it was served. I could easily rated Pop's "Excellent" except for the service.

My hubby and I have just recently moved to Hendersonville (Love, Love this town)..This little dinner has been here before the 50's... It has great food, and our server was very nice and always had a smile on her face. Only complaint, is that I wished it was open for dinner:)

Stopped in for lunch and it was like stepping back in time. The looks are right out of the fifty's with the color and upholstery of the booths. Typical diner menu with many items to choose from. Friendly wait staff to serve us. We will be back when we are in town.

Nice little diner just north of downtown. The food is great, service is nice, but it is a little pricey for breakfast.
