500 different bottled Soda Pop! Jul 15, 2009
Pops defies pigeon-holing. It is a 50’s themed diner style restaurant with decent diner food. It is a convenience store, in which you can get gas and food. It’s an attraction with a 66 foot pop bottle out front, a space age design, and a Route 66 address. On top of all of that they sell 500 different kinds of bottled pop!

When I heard about Pops I made it a priority to visit while we were in OKC. Pops is actually in Arcadia, which is about 25 minutes north of downtown OKC. But, the drive was easy, and even pleasant once the big city fell away. Obviously the big draw in the soda pop. They have everything that is currently being made anywhere in the country, most of which you either never heard of, or didn’t think was being made anymore. RC Cola, Ne-Hi, Bubble Up, and many, many, more. They aren’t cheap at $1.99 per bottle, but I still thought it cheap enough to buy 12 bottles for consumption and gifts.

It gets very busy and the store part and the restaurant part aren’t completely divided. There is some intermingling of the patrons. That did add a bit of atmosphere. The service was a bit slow and disjointed on the day we were there, but you that could happen at any restaurant at any time. We had a good experience and would definitely go back!

We have something like this in Germany. Instead of pops they have beer though. :)

Nostalgic Experience Jun 20, 2009
POPS was amazing in the manner in which it was modern but made you feel like you were a part of something greater – how the past connects to the present. It is by far, one of the most modern sites along Route 66. POPS opened in 2007 as a 1950’s style diner, bringing visitors and tourist back to Rte. 66. The GIANT soda bottle, which marks the territory, is 66-feet-high.

The menu is like that of any other burger joint. The only vegetarian item on the menu was grilled PB&J. I ordered for the club salad minus the hickory smoked bacon, crispy chicken, and Fried okra (because it is fried in the same grease as the hand breaded chicken strips). The fountain drinks are bottomless, which is an added bonus, adding your favorite flavor shot makes them even better. Breakfast is served Saturday and Sunday until 10:30 a.m.

The inside of the restaurant is somewhat crowded. Many people did not request to eat outside, which make the atmosphere pleasant. There are HUGE umbrellas to give you ample shade. There is also a huge “back yard” to give you kids the room to release some energy while you finish eating or have that “adult” conversation.

In addition to the restaurant, there is a convenience store and gas station. At the store, you can buy one of the over 500 sodas that they offer, t-shirts, magnets, key chains, and post cards, amongst over items.

If you are in the Oklahoma City metro area, I would recommend that you stop by for a visit – if nothing else, to say you ride on Rte. 66!
