Great Food , Service, Atmosphere 10/8/2009

Spent the day in queens for work and had Breakast , Lunch and Dinner here. every one in my goup raeved over how better POP diner was over the other diners we had been too. From the food to the service. Had some items on the menu that you dont find at your normal diner. Have been back a few times since and they always make us feel at home every time. Pros: Great Selection all day Long. more


What a great feeling to come to New York on Vacation and find a local Diner, that isn't your average diner, this is an Diner with an upscale flare. I own serveral restaurants in So. Florida, so I nit pick and comment on everything. The food was exceptional, I was visiting for a week and I made it to the diner everyday atleast for a meal or a late night snack. My favorite dishes were, Thai grilled-chicken salad was the BOMB, crab cakes (delicioso), godfather burger (perfectly done) to the ultimate wrap unreal, seafood risotto was out of sight (my favorite dish) and the list goes on, so does the great menu with something for everyone, desserts WOW!!! carrot cake unbelievable and the cheesecake (with fresh whole strawberries). I have visited the City for years and I'm happy to say that I have found The BEST KEPT SECRET in Queens, I can't wait to go back, the service was also a refreshing treat and the management (Angel and Cindy) made it super. This is what dinning is all about great food, awesome service, super clean restaurant and great managers making sure you feel at home. Thank you ""Pop Diner"" for not letting the nit picker have anything to pick at, lol.... Pros: Everything Cons: zero more

great place to hang out 4/25/2009

Pop diner is a great place to chill with friends. Great for late night hours for drinks and great food to pick on. \r \r Also family friendly. My little brother loves the New England Clam Chowder and the Fried Calimary. That's the only thing he eats!\r \r If you request the dining room for a large party, they will open up for you and they have 2 TVs which is great for any sporting games or tv shows.\r \r This diner is great for any occasion. Family or friends. I would bring anyone, anytime and they can enjoy any types of food from regular American food to Spanish food to Asian food. Pros: good food, friendly staff, great aura more

my new favorite place 4/23/2009

a friend of mine recommended pop diner to me a couple of weeks ago and since then i've been back five times already. i cant get enough of their land and sea paella. its to die for. actually everything that i have had there was excellent. for lunch try the ranchero sandwich. Pros: fast, clean, and great service with a smile Cons: none that i've experienced more

What an gem!! 4/22/2009

There is nothing but great things to say about POP Diner. Attentive service is paid to every detail. The steak thai salad was incredible and the salmon salad was to out of this world!!! Pros: Great Location & Amazing Food more

Get Treated Like Family 3/30/2009

From the moment you walk in you're treated like family. The food is delicious, diverse and done just the way you like it.If it weren't great we wouldn't dine here at 3-4 times a week. We especially love the brunch, wouldn't be the weekend without POP brunch! We love POP so much we have had several big parties in their funky party room(very Andy Warhol!) All-in-all a neighborhood treasure not to be missed. Pros: great food, friendly atmosphere, parking, ambience more

Best Food in Queens 3/29/2009

Pop Diner is called a diner, but is everything but. The staff is excellent. They take good care of you without being all over you. They are friendly, personable, professional and provide better service and quality for your dollar than many higher end restaurants in the city. Moderately priced, but the food is top quality. Great ambiance, no drawbacks. Angel, Nick, Perdo, Cindy, Leo and the rest of the staff make it more than just a place to eat. Never had a meal there that I did not thoroughly enjoy. THE place to eat no matter what the occasion. Pros: Latin Food Like My Mom Used to Make more

I would definitely go back to pop 12/10/2008

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. more

Good Restaurant 12/2/2008

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. more

generous drinks-first class seafood and steaks-delicious soy peanut salad dressing 11/1/2008

well, as a regular customer i ve tried a little bit of everything and been more than satisfied! its overwhelming!!\r born in the 70s the atmosphere here feels very familiar,warm to my senses and memories.\r 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...\r the staff has become very familiar too. I ve been there so often...very friendly.\r it is a MUST try place!!!\r Pros: food quality, service, ambience, parking, VARIETY of food more

One of THE best diners 10/11/2007

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. Pros: ambience, food, drinks, service Cons: NONE!!!!! more

they make request! 7/12/2007

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. Pros: they look out for wat customers request, and try to make it for them. Cons: nothing so far! more

nice place to relax 7/12/2007

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 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 Pros: decoro, ac, and service Cons: music didnt match the 70s feel...or at least the pop part of the diner more

Pros: ambience,service,food Cons: nothing more

Don't Come here 4/22/2007

This place was terrible:\r a. the decor was very tacky, although it was suppose to mimic the 70s, so its forgivable\r b. The service was terrible, the waiters often forget your orders or take forever to come\r c. The people in the restaurant were drunk and rowdy (don't go into the bathroom on weekends) \r 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)\r \r So all in all, unless your desperate or you're just terribly curious because of the blinding neon lights outside, don't come here. Pros: Good Portions, Parking Cons: Service, Food, Company, Ambience, Cleaniness more
