When hunger strikes and you are craving tasty food that is delicious and prepared fresh to order look no further than Pop's Diner in Carolina Beach.  Pop's is one of the Island's most popular dining choices offering delicious burgers, hot dogs and more.  Staying packed with a line out the door all summer has been exactly what owners and operaters Amy Webster and Patrick Puffpaff hoped to acheive through serving consisntently delicious food with unbeatable service.  Pop's Diner is impossible to miss when driving through the heart of Carolina Beach as the nostalgic "shiny diner" exterior shines in the sun like a beacon directing you to some of the best food in town.  The menu at Pop's Diner is full of great options with something for everyone.  People love their burgers with good reason.  Pop's only uses the best fresh ground beef, hand pattied every day and then put on all of your favorite toppings for the perfect burger every time.  If you aren't in the mood for burgers try a hot dog, sandwich, fresh breaded chicken tenders, dinner and lunch baskets, or even their footlong hotdogs and corndogs.  Pair anything with an order of their sweet potato fries for an outstanding meal.  Pop's even has garden veggie and black bean burgers which are out of this world.  Whether you are a vegetarian or not you will be amazed by how good this burger is. 
Football season is starting up which means you need wings.  Pop's has you covered all season long with their delicious wings which you can get in a variety of amazing flavors.  Choose from your standard mild or hot wings or liven things up with the sweet and tangy Asian BBQ, regular BBQ sauce, or even the orange glaze.  Pop's wings are available in increments up to 50 so you can have plenty to share with all your friends on game day.  All of their wing sauces like the rest of their sauces are all homemade in house. One of the reasons why people love Pop's Diner is that they are huge on service.  Every time you return you will notice that they've kept many of the same employees over the years.  This keeps customers happy as they love to see familiar faces and the consistency is a testament to how much their employees believe in and feel proud about the food they serve.  If you consider youself to be somewhat adventurous and willing to give some different and exciting flavors a try then you have to check out some of the more unique offerings at Pop's Diner.  They have some excellent desserts like fried oreos, fried twinkies, and frozen cheesecake dipped in cherries or chocolate.
