Each time we go to visit our son in Roanoke, we have to stop at Pops. Run by a husband and wife team, it seems the perfect little business. It is located near Black Dog Salvage and it is fun to shop at Black Dog...More

Greatest ice cream shop in the city. Wonderful atmosphere always brimming with crowds of smiles. Great ice cream, but also sandwiches, soups, and salads. Like stepping back in time.

We had a group of 9 people at Pop's on a Saturday night. The ice cream was great; a little something for everyone. The old fashion soda was good too! The place is a bit small for a group of our size. The one large...More
